Payroll For Accountants

We have been helping accountancy practices who outsource the payroll section of their service bundle.

Why Outsource Payroll?

The motive for doing so does not differ from SMEs and Corporates:

  • Taking advantage of a passionate team of experts whose entire focus is payroll.
  • An extremely complicated payroll environment – the legislative terrain and awkward reporting requirements increase the odds of late filing penalty charges.
  • Cost effective – help reduces the cost expend on personnel training, software programs, hardware and IT support.
  • Auto enrollment – an internal expertise gap associated with auto-enrolment may exist. It is costly and time-intensive to shut the gap unless you outsource to the professionals.
  • Margin – you have the chance to invest more time in higher margin as well as greater value-added services for your Clients.

Services for Accountants

We offer complete payroll solutions to practices across the United Kingdom. We offer a completely outsourced and bespoke service addressing all the payroll needs of our clients, from weekly or perhaps monthly transactions to year-end reporting and auto-enrollment services.

Many of the accountancy practices we have worked with outsource a few Clients to us; some others preferably outsource everyone. The latter is the commonest approach, especially given the additional resources strain of auto enrollment.

We often address the accountancy practice as our Client with the user seamlessly interacting with the practice only. As an alternative, we can treat your Client as ours for the functions of payroll and consequently obtain inputs from them directly and also furnish them with the corresponding outputs.

In essence, we will work with you to uncover an optimal solution to suit your needs as well as your Clients.

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!
