Payroll News: Payroll partners – auto enrolment, sharepoint and new staff

payroll partnership

“Payroll partners” has certainly been the buzz word for us this autumn.   In fact, we have been all over the south of England in hot pursuit of new clients and discussing ways in which we can help to reduce their payroll costs and save £1000’s .


Welcome to our family

In September, we were delighted to welcome Becca Bodman, Payroll Administrator to our team who joins us from an accountancy practice in Glasgow.  Not only has she settled in really quickly but brings with her bags of Scottish zest and enthusiasm for all things payroll.  Her photo will be on our website soon.

Workbase pensions and auto enrolment

Workbase pension auto enrolment training started for us during the summer.  Hence, we are now actively involved in trials with some of our larger clients who’s staging dates are fast approaching. This has included working with the entrepreneur Philippe Fraser and his highly successful London based Language Fantastic Bi-lingual Nurseries    To help demystify the auto enrolment process we put together an  Auto Enrolment Quick Guide  ; helping our clients who are just starting out on the process.

Sharepoint (CHaPS)  – Client Hub is launched! 

In October we began the roll out of our latest innovation in online payroll services ‘CHaPS’.  A number of our clients with ranging payroll portfolios including the well respected Plymouth based sexual assault and rape crisis center Twelve’s Company took part in the trials.  We are really pleased to announce that the feedback received from those involved has been very positive and we are now looking to fully implement this service during the first part of 2014.
