With over 50 years of experience in the payroll industry, acted for thousands of organisations across the UK, our experts have become specialists in dealing with charity, not for profit and voluntary organisations' payroll and pension management.

By specialising in the sector we have been able to develop a comprehensive understanding of the specific challenges faced by not-for-profit organsiations, and have adapted to their specific requirements.

Some of the common factors that we encounter include:

  • Volunteer workers
  • Temporary contract workers
  • High staff turnover
  • Low paid employees
  • Non-UK workers
  • Commission based fundraising
  • Fund specific payroll allocation
  • Trustee expense payments
  • Bank staff
  • Status issues – volunteer/worker/employee

To tackle these challenges, our solution is to be fully flexible. When developing your payroll and pension outsourcing solution we wrap around you and your existing systems, and whilst we will always advise on best practise we realise that payroll isn’t a one-size-fits-all element – particularly for charities, not for profit and voluntary organisations.

Many larger organisations have invested in HR systems and we often are asked if our solution will integrate with them. The short answer is, yes. We have built a data interface that allows us to take data in any standard format and bring it into our payroll system. For our clients this means we do not dictate the data format you supply and we can even ensure that any complex data outputs you may need can be supplied to feed back into your financial or HR systems.
