Understanding key issues


Struggling to ensure compliance

With annual changes to payroll legislation, teams often spend too much time ensuring their processes are compliant.

Ensuring accuracy of pay

Getting payroll right first time is business critical. A lot of teams have ageing technology that can be prone to mistakes, so they have to spend time ensuring accuracy is maintained.

Taxation issues

Creating accurate tax calculations in payslips is not an easy job. Regular updates are required to ensure that employees’ salaries are taxed correctly. Incorrect tax calculations can lead to penalties, inconvenience and additional work.

Safety and security concerns

Payroll data is sensitive data, so ensuring this is secure in a world of increasing cyber attacks is vital.

Too much paper

Many Payroll teams still use systems that rely heavily on paper and spreadsheets. This leads to wasted time, inaccuracies and data headaches.

You have a large and mobile workforce

The workplace is changing, with flexible, part-time and home working. Getting payroll correct is more complex than ever.
