Payroll News: Summer 2014


American Museum in Britain


Payroll services for charities is booming

Cox and Co. Payroll Solutions Ltd are delighted to announce that the prestigious museum and charity The American Museum in Britain  made the decision over the summer to move their payroll provision to ourselves in readiness for their autoenrolment implementation next year.

The museum was in the process of making operational changes and looked to the payroll outsourcing market for a local provider that could meet their specific organisational needs. 

Tom Case, Financial Controller at the museum later told us:

“We are very pleased that we decided to take up your services as payroll provider.  You have delivered what you promised, and have done so in a friendly and professional manner.  Thank you.” 

It’s true, our charity payroll specialism attracts a most discerning clientele from all kinds of business areas.  However,BFA001 this summer  we have been fortunate to attract a number of clients who specialise in training and enrichment for individuals, groups and the corporate world.

These include outdoor pursuits specialists B F Adventure, who are based near Falmouth, Cornwall; The Learning Curve who focus on workforce and organisational development within the voluntary and not for profit sectors and Skills for Logistics the UK’s main provider of logistical workforce training and development.

We understand that often our clients’ causes are created out of a societal need to make change in their geographical area or help those who are in need – these organisations often come to us as we also reflect their desire to remain focused on those who need their support most – their end users.  Therefore, we are also proud to announce that  Carers Support in Wiltshire and health promotion experts Gasp Smoke Free among others have become part of our prestigious client base.

What makes Cox & Co. attractive to charities?

It’s difficult to define why our particular charity payroll provision attracts third sector organisations in such a competitive marketplace.  In fact, many of the charities we sign move from very well known payroll bureaus or very large accountancy practices to be with ourselves.

Could it be our very favourable fixed monthly fees? Perhaps it’s because of our extended knowledge in the auditing process employed by charities?  Maybe it’s our customised reporting expertise that ensures every client has the information displayed in a manner which is most helpful to them?

Or… could it simply be our company ethos:

“Every client will be made to feel like our only client”.

As third sector payroll specialists, we know what matters most to this sector – a company that has an indepth understanding of their unique requirements and their need to partner with a business that reflects their altruism in today’s modern fast-paced world!

Our clients tell us that it is our company ethos and customer service that sets us apart from the competition – it’s true we deliver on our promises and make our clients feel like they really matter!

And on that cheery note, autumn looks to be a fabulous season too! So don’t forget to check back to see our latest developments.
