Specific Industry Expertise
We have developed expertise in operating payroll for many specialist industries such as:
Nursing and Care Homes
Taking care of residents and patients is an all-consuming vocation that leaves very little time for the demands of running a payroll. Your staff are the key to your success and this means ensuring that their pay is processed accurately and on time. Frequent staff turnover, multiple hourly and nightly pay rates, bank staff, residual NHS pay and conditions warrant the attention of highly experienced and knowledgeable payroll experts. We can take care of your entire payroll process leaving you free to look after your residents.
Employment agencies face particular challenges in the calculation of payroll. High staff turnover, together with holiday pay calculation and statutory payments create unique difficulties. This is a fiercely competitive sector where gaining a reputation for looking after your temps ensures that your agency has the edge in this challenging marketplace. Speed and accuracy of processing ensures that your temps remain loyal and reliable. We will take care of your entire payroll process leaving you free to focus your time on filling your vacancies.
Hospitality and Leisure
The hotel, tourism and leisure industries face the unique need to avoid a fixed overhead that is often only used to capacity on a seasonal basis. Frequent staff turnover, particularly when weekly or fortnightly paid, can put pressure on payroll resulting in issues with accuracy and compliance. Calculation of payments such as holiday pay, statutory sick pay and other statutory payments are often difficult to quantify when staff work irregular hours. We can take care of your entire payroll process leaving you free to take care of your guest or clients.
We have specialist payroll knowledge and experience in helping language schools, pre-schools and nurseries deal with the unique demands that they face. Frequent staff turnover, seasonal peaks and troughs, term time only workers and tax issues surrounding those who are not usually UK based are just some of the challenges that we can help you with.
Charities in particular are always conscious of their operating costs knowing the effect these costs have on how much they raise for their charity. Smaller charitable organisations are often staffed by volunteers with little or no payroll experience. We are sensitive to this unique situation and provide complete support for your staff in dealing with all aspects of payroll leaving you free to focus more of your time on fundraising.
Accountants & Bookkeepers Payroll Service
We have developed excellent relationships with bookkeepers and accountants to become the payroll bureau recommended to their clients. Payroll is often a service that is required by clients but that bookkeepers and small accountants do not have the resource to provide.
To this end, we have developed a service which can be as flexible as required in that we can deal with the clients direct or with the accountant/bookkeeper only as a white label service.
Among the benefits to the accountant/bookkeeper is immediate access to client payroll records. These are provided in any format required and mean that there is no delay in accountancy service while waiting for the records to be produced.
Our service gives accountants and bookkeepers access to our payroll expertise without having to compromise their own resources. They also have access to our BACS bureau which gives them the option to offer BACS payments to their clients’ employees.
BACS Bureau Service
The Local Payroll Company Ltd is an approved BACS bureau with the facility to submit payments such as those below on behalf of Employers set up as an Indirect BACS submitter.
PAYE payment to HMRC
Attachment of Earnings Orders
Other 3rd Party payments
Please contact us if you are interested in setting up as a BACS Indirect Submitter and we will assist you with your application through your bank.
ePayslips, eP60s & eP11Ds
We can offer a self-service web based payslip facility which will deliver a higher level of service to employees. They can access current and previous payslips 24/7 from anywhere in the world via any device with internet access, including mobile phones.
ePayslips provides an attractive solution for the provision of payslip information to employees. Once the payroll is calculated, the payslip is automatically uploaded to the secure website www.epayslips.com. Once there, employees are able to access their own payslips (both current and historic) without the need to revert to the payroll department.
Security of ePayslips is paramount. The level of security provided by the hosts of the website is the same as that associated with on-line banking services. No hands touch an ePayslip from when it is generated to when the employee sees it, so it cannot be delayed, intercepted in the post or opened by the wrong recipient.
The Employer is also able to review all or individual payslips prior to publishing and is able to insert the corporate log on all the documents.
The same function is available for the end of year statement P60 and the expenses and benefits statement P11D.
We have worked with Alison for over 10 years and would not do business with any other agency. The service is excellent, with a personalised edge, yet professional and efficient. Fantastic company and come highly recommended by us.
