Payroll and Financial Services


We offer a range of payroll services to individuals, organisations and voluntary groups who employ people. That might be individuals in receipt of Self-Directed Support or Independent Living Fund employing personal care staff or workers in the community – we do the hard work for you.

Our services scale, so it doesn’t matter whether you’re a large third sector organisation with more complicated needs or an individual wanting to remove the hassle and responsibility of payroll. We deliver a bespoke service based on your requirements.

For a monthly fee we can:

  • register you with HM Revenue and Customs and deal with any future correspondence, fill in forms and new legislation as well as prepare your wage slips for each employee
  • calculate the employer/employee National Insurance
  • organise PAYE and statutory payments and provide you with a report of the correct monthly PAYE/National Insurance to be paid to HMRC
  • complete your employers annual year end return and prepare P14 and P60 forms on line filing
  • manage a payroll bank account for you to pay employees, pensions and HMRC direct
  • process and pay care/respite invoices
  • assist with the setting up of auto enrolment and administer monthly thereafter ensuring you are legally compliant
  • complete monitoring reports to funders on your behalf

We also offer a range of complete accountancy and book-keeping services for larger organisations with more complex needs.
