The benefits of outsourcing your payroll

Outsourcing your payroll carries many benefits. Whether you are a small (single director company) or a large company we provide expert advice in the field of PAYE and workplace pensions. The time you will save not having to keep up to date with the current legislation will enable you to focus on other aspects of your business.

Processing your own payroll in-house has its own complications when your payroll clerk is on holiday, off ill, or leaves/retires, this creates a vulnerability in your payroll process. We can guarantee that your payroll will be processed on time, every time with accuracy. Not to mention the significant saving with not having to employ an in-house payroll processing team.

We will ensure RTI filing deadlines are met and at no extra cost can be the authorised agent for your company, handling tax code notices, student loan notices and dealing directly with HMRC with PAYE queries.

Not only will you avoid the software costs associated with payroll processing, but we can customise the payslips with your company logo and tailor the information included within the payslips and summary report to your requirements.

At Alderley Payroll Services we pride ourselves on a quick turnaround for both payroll processing and any questions you have.

We are GDPR compliant and take data security very seriously, using a range of measures to ensure data safety and protection.

Working with accountants & bookkeepers

If you are an accountant or bookkeeper and looking to outsource your book of payrolls we can help! We are sensitive to the fact that outsourcing your client payrolls can feel unsettling and because of that we will work with you to ensure we offer the highest level of service.

We offer a tailored service. What does this mean? Well, if you want us to send payrolls directly to your clients, we can do this. If your client has a payroll question they can email or ring us as many times as they need, with no fee. If you would rather still be the point of contact for your client, we can communicate only with you.

Discounts are available to accountants and bookkeepers. Please get in touch for a custom quote.

CIS Suffered & Deducted

We can handle your CIS duties, whether this is filing CIS deductions suffered, or CIS deducted, producing payment and deduction statements to email on to your subcontractors.

As part of the CIS service, we can verify new subcontractors ensuring the correct rates are used.

Auto Enrolment & Workplace Pensions

Every employer in the UK has workplace pension duties, this is called auto enrolment. All employees must be offered the chance to join a workplace pension scheme and depending on the employee(s) earnings must be automatically enrolled into a qualifying workplace pension scheme. Not only that but all employees must receive a pension letter within 6 weeks of their employment start date.

For new employers you will also need to file a declaration of compliance with The Pensions Regulator within 5 months of your legal duties start date.

At Alderley Payroll Services we can handle all aspects of workplace pensions, from the letters, employee assessment, pension set up, declarations of compliance and re-enrolment.
