Working smarter: PwC Payroll services


The objective for payroll has always been a simple one – pay your employees accurately and on time.

    Payroll has historically been seen as a low risk function where issues rarely trouble the higher levels of management. To that extent you probably haven’t given it a great deal of management time and attention. However, this area has become increasingly complex for employers of all sizes and many find themselves struggling with the increasing complexity and global nature of payroll. That’s where PwC can step in and help your organisation get payroll right in what’s now an ever-changing and very complex regulatory environment.

    We’ve invested significantly in our people, processes and systems to develop a unique approach to manage the challenges of payroll. Using our extensive knowledge in the payroll industry and feedback from our clients, we tailor every payroll engagement to ensure it’s relevant and provides value for each specific organisation.

    At the heart of our team are qualified and experienced payroll specialists who combine practical experience with the latest industry knowledge. We keep up to date with evolving payroll legislation so that you don’t have to, and provide access to specialist knowledge that helps keep your organisation compliant and well informed.

    Our payroll team is in place and ready to support you, with a designated payroll professional to manage your account from the outset, and an operations manager to oversee quality and responsiveness. This, combined with good continuity of knowledge and experience of operating similar payrolls, will help deliver the smooth efficient service you demand.
