Between 2-6 September, the payroll industry celebrated the 21st National Payroll Week. The annual celebration is led by the Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP) and is intended to raise the profile and awareness of payroll in the UK.
For most UK organisations, payroll is a significant expenditure; couple that with regular changes to legislation and the whole process can quickly become confusing and time-consuming, as a consequence.
National Payroll Week is something we always look forward to participating in. (Besides giving us a reason to bake cakes), it presents us with the perfect opportunity to educate local businesses on the benefits of outsourcing and how we can help them to eliminate their payroll worries.
At GH Payscheme, we understand that the payroll function can be a source of much frustration and uncertainty for many employers. From auto-enrolment obligations to generating payslips and real-time information reporting, it can be overwhelming.
However, we also firmly believe that with the right support in place, this doesn’t have to be the case. As business owners and employers you can rest assured that, with us, your payroll is in safe hands.
We thoroughly enjoyed this year’s celebrations, which saw us hold an office bake sale and stage our very own ‘payroll festival’. We look forward to doing it all again next year!
