Why us ?

Why Choose Us for Payroll Outsourcing Services

Outsourcing payroll operations offers numerous benefits, primarily time and cost savings. Managing payroll internally can be time-consuming and requires dedicated personnel. By outsourcing, companies can concentrate on their core business activities and save resources. Payroll processing is complex, and using a provider with specialised expertise ensures accuracy and compliance with tax laws.

Outsourcing also helps maintain compliance with ever-changing tax regulations and ensures the confidentiality and security of sensitive payroll data. It reduces costs, saves time, improves accuracy and compliance, and provides access to specialised technology and expertise.

What Is Outsourced Payroll?

Outsourced payroll is a business payroll process where a company hires a third-party provider, like Direct Payroll Services, to handle all aspects of its payroll operations. They have all of the necessary payroll expertise. They can cover tasks such as calculating employee salaries and wages, deducting taxes for the tax year, issuing paychecks or direct deposits, and maintaining accurate employee records of all payroll transactions, no matter the business size.

Outsourcing payroll allows a company to focus on its core business activities while leaving complex and time-consuming payroll tasks to a specialised provider. It can also help reduce costs, improve accuracy and compliance, and provide access to expertise and technology that might not be available in-house.

Outsourced Payroll Benefits

Outsourcing your full payroll processes is a cost-effective move ideal for many solo, small, and medium-sized businesses, accountants, and HR teams. Handling the payroll yourself can be not only time-consuming but very risky—there are many regulations and compliance issues, as well as payroll legislation, that untrained or inexperienced personnel can fail to address.

Reduce Staffing Costs

When it comes to a process payroll outsourcing service, large multinational companies find it easier to keep in-house payroll staff and a payroll department. Still, for many businesses, it is just not practical. There is not enough work involved to warrant full-time staff, and the associated costs of continuing professional development, holidays, sickness, sick pay and benefits can soon mount up.

Other Expenses

An in-house team also requires specialist payroll software, associated hardware, and ongoing training. These costs can quickly run into the thousands, all of which can be avoided by outsourcing. You will be able to take advantage of our use of the best solutions available and our well-trained professionals.

Improve Productivity

Removing the need for payroll staff on-site means you can free up personnel or recruitment funds for employees who can work on profit-making and value-adding operations, giving you an advantage when you look to grow your business.

Payroll Compliance

Making a slight mistake on your payroll function can result in stiff penalties, frustrations, and painful issues—particularly when dealing with HMRC. We have the staff, software, and experience to minimise these risks and act as your expert agents when handling HMRC payroll queries and communications.


Consider what you would do if your payroll staff were sick or walked out during a crucial reporting or pay period. Would your other employees suffer as a consequence? Would you struggle to report correctly to HMRC? With Direct Payroll Services, you never need to worry – output speed and quality will remain consistent week after week, month after month. You also will not have to worry about onboarding new employees and spending valuable time getting them used to your payroll system – our fully managed payroll service means that we handle everything and ensure that everyone is paid correctly.


As a professional payroll provider, we use powerful payroll systems and our own streamlined processes to ensure that we can process even the most complex payrolls quickly—our guaranteed 24-hour turnaround is evidence of this focus on speed.

Security and Backups

Your payroll information is among the most sensitive data in your business, so it makes sense to keep it secure. However, keeping offsite backups of six years’ worth of business and employee data (in case of an audit) can become very expensive and time-consuming and is subject to its own set of regulatory and compliance requirements—let us do it for you.

Peace of Mind

All of the above adds up to one overall benefit for business owners: peace of mind. No hassle, headache, or worry—your payroll is completely taken care of, so you can focus on running your business. Call our payroll professionals today.
