Weekly, Fortnightly, Four Weekly, or Monthly
All standard pay frequencies can be accommodated. Assistance and advice can also be given to companies wishing to change their pay frequency to help reduce costs. Data will need to be supplied to ourselves by a pre-specified cut-off. Every effort is made to accommodate your own existing forms, though we are able to supply standard payroll forms if required. Processing will then follow, and the payroll output supplied to your specification.
Cash, Cheque, or Bacs
Payrolls requiring cash or cheque payments to employees will be supplied with reports detailing the payments required. The same routine will be used for bacs payments originated by the employer. For an extra charge, we can accommodate bacs payments direct into your employees bank accounts. This option will require the up front payment of the gross value of the payroll run, so that the bacs payments can be made via your cleared funds.
Payslips and Reports
Payslips will be produced for each pay period, and these will be supplied with envelopes. The envelopes will be left unsealed if cheques or cash are to be included. Output reporting can be specified at the beginning, though additional reports can be produced at a later date if required. Exporting in Microsoft Excel can be accommodated, and bespoke Excel reports can be written if required.
How to Pay HMRC Electronically
Payments from employers who pay electronically must reach the HMRC bank account and clear no later than the 22nd of the month. Where the 22nd falls on a weekend or is a bank holiday, HMRC must receive cleared funds no later than the last bank working day before the 22nd.

Disaster Recovery and Back-up Procedures
The outsourcing of the payroll function immediately provides an increased level of security, as the confidential records are kept off-site, and away from employee eyes. Our payroll software prompts on every exit for a fresh back-up, and secondary copies are created and stored. Paper records and reports gathered over the period of each tax year are achived off-site for at least the duration of the legal retention requirements.
