Outsourced Payroll Services

Payroll services made easy. From month end processes to fully managed – we’ve got you covered.

Payroll with Phase 3 – Whatever the Tech we’ll step in

It’s about more than ‘handling your payroll’. We become your payroll department; getting under the skin of your business to understand who you are, what you do and what you need. That’s how we create a payroll service that delivers exactly what your business needs now – and keeps delivering in the future.

Why Payroll Services?

Payroll is often the largest expense for any organisation and the highest risk for compliance and financial burden. With a dedicated payroll consultant on hand, you don’t have to be an expert! We cover the end-to-end processes – but also the extra payroll processes which often cause you trouble.

Why outsource your payroll management?

No matter what industry you’re in, outsourcing your payroll management to a third-party can be very beneficial for your business. Working with a payroll consultancy lets you take advantage of their expertise and technology. Putting your payroll services in the hands of payroll professionals also frees up your internal team so they can work on HR projects that can save you time, money and improve employee satisfaction.

Payroll occupies an interesting place in business. It’s an essential part of any company yet doesn’t directly help with sales or scale. This means many business owners see it as a money and resources black hole. A task that should be done as quickly and cheaply as possible to minimise the cost on the business.

But payroll is a vital part of any businesses success, and done correctly it can help create a happier workforce that adds zeros to your bottom line.

Letting us manage your payroll services means you can:

  • Make sure all your payroll data is secure and free from security risks

Managing a company’s payroll comes with several security risks. Handling the confidential payroll data in-house means it can be open to cyber attacks or employee mis-management.

Whether it’s from staff oversight or phishing scams, having your payroll data fall into the wrong hands is something no business owner wants. Creating a security culture in your office and undertaking regular training sessions are a good way to minimise this risk.

But the single most impactful thing you could do is outsource your payroll functions to a dedicated consultancy. They’ll protect your data with state-of-the-art software and make sure all your documentation is GDPR compliant.

  • Complete your monthly payroll accurately, on time and be 100% compliant every month

To process the payroll for one person requires 14 pieces of personal data. If any piece of that information is wrong it will lead to a payroll error. Mistakes and payroll errors are more common than many people think. They can upset your staff and cost you money. Incorrect submission of employee tax can lead to fines from the government.

Tax code changes are another thorn in the side of businesses. This often confusing and ever changing legislation can be a nightmare to keep up with. Especially if you’re a small company.

Hiring a payroll consultancy removes this headache. A professional payroll consultancy, like Phase 3, will employ payroll experts and use specialised technology to guarantee your payroll is completed on time and is compliant with government regulations.

  • Save money to spend on other areas of your business

Outsourcing your payroll services gives you access to the best payroll technology and a team of payroll experts without having to hire a dedicated person or team internally.

Outsourcing your payroll could save you a considerable amount of money in the long run as you’ll save on people and infrastructure. Managing payroll personally is a drain on your time, errors and omissions can lead to expensive fines. By using a third party consultancy service you avoid all this hassle.

  • Have more time for growing your business

Outsourcing the transactional task of sorting out your company’s payroll gives your in-house team more time to spend on HR projects that improve employee satisfaction. Working with a payroll consultancy gives your team and yourself more time to work on projects that’ll grow your business
