Managed Payroll Services

Managing payroll can perhaps be one of the most challenging tasks for any company. Besides calculating the wages for each employee, you need to be compliant with the latest HMRC regulations, insurance, taxation, and pension requirements. 

What further complicates the matter is if you have temporary employees or a diversified team. Many companies neither have the time to take over this administrative burden nor professional experience to ensure 100% error-free payroll data. 

Going for a payroll managed services can, however, be a deal breaker. Outsourcing this process would give you the extra time to the business to focus on the core business operations and other administrative processes and ensure your employees get timely salaries every time.

So, if you are looking to take a break from this strenuous burden, here’s what you need to know about fully managed payroll services UK and why an outsourcing payroll is a great option.

What is a Managed Payroll Service?

In simpler terms, managed payroll service for external or temporary employees mean you outsource to payroll professionals and their services through a managed services provider (MSP). 

In short, everything from processing the salaries to considering the tax bracket and generating payslips will be conducted by a third-party payroll manager. All you are required to do is provide relevant information about all the employees, including the pay rate and the total number of hours worked. 

Opting for a fully managed payroll services would mean a third party would use payroll software for the following responsibilities:

  • Setting up the system and maintaining employee data
  • Processing  gross wages individually and ensuring all employees are paid correctly
  • Subtracting necessary withholdings like benefits, PAYE or pension
  • Ensuring a proper payroll compliance
  • Generating payslips for all employees
  • Making salary payments via a BACS transfer
  • Maintaining the relevant pay data for all payroll processes
  • Filling remittances to the government that businesses qualify for
  • Preparing all payroll documentation including P45’s, P60s etc.
  • Filling out the necessary paperwork such as SSP1 forms 

The market is loaded with vendors selling managed and outsourcing payroll services. But, to choose the right vendor, you should have to consider certain key factors. 

Technically speaking, payroll service refers to business process outsourcing (BPO). While it means outsourcing to a professional for your payroll needs, things get complicated when you combine management systems with payroll data. Several Human Management technologies like HR software offer different tools for holding payroll information. A managed HR system will  not process your payroll and will require you to extract the information for processing. So, to choose the right vendor, you would need a clear distinction between the preferred technology and the process you want to go for. 

With managed payroll service you would make the entire process easy and streamlined for the HRs and the payroll department. They would be able to combine their resources with payroll experts  and offer proper transparency to the entire payroll process within the business. 

Lastly, to choose the managed payroll provider, you can ask questions like: 

  • Who is responsible for ensuring proper compliance of all the data and the process? 
  • Can they provide an estimated cost?
  • How does the system support compliance? 
  • What’s the downtime for managed payroll reports?
  • Who will be responsible for ensuring the security factor in payroll services?
