I was hesitant in changing my payroll provider part way through the year but the process was very smooth and stress-free. Direct Payroll took care of everything and ensured an easy transition. I am very impressed with the speed and accuracy of their service, they usually process our payroll and send all payslips to my employees within 48 hours of receiving all the information.

We have been outsourcing our monthly payroll to Direct Payroll for a number of years now and could not be happier with their services. Our agent is very friendly and professional, ready to answer any question or doubt we may have. I particularly find very useful the online client area on their website where I can access reports and payslips when I need them. I would recommend Direct Payroll as a first point of contact to any organisation contemplating outsourcing their payroll.

We used to run our weekly payroll in-house, this started to take up a lot of our time and it was a constant headaches to keep up with all the regulatory changes and ensuring our employees got paid on time. Outsourcing our payroll to Direct Payroll was the best decision ever, their fees are excellent value for money, we should have done it earlier!

Our staging date was fast approaching when we contacted Direct Payroll. They evaluated our workforce payroll and were able to recommend a suitable pension provider that met our needs. The payroll is always on time and accurate, very happy with their service!

Working with Direct Payroll has helped us to significantly reduce our payroll related costs. In addition to this, knowing that they would deal with any HMRC query gives us great peace of mind. Their Payroll Masterfile is very intuitive and easy to use, I like the option to be able to send all the data online as I am often out and about.

Running our monthly payroll for 150 employees used to be a very tedious activity which took a lot of resources from our business. Outsourcing to Direct Payroll was the right decision and we could not be happier with their professional and friendly services. Highly recommended!
