Payroll services to power your business

What is payroll?

Payroll is the system that businesses use to calculate and administer employees’ salaries in accordance with a country’s legislation and local tax requirements.

In the UK, the payroll process includes the following calculations:

1. Add up gross pay including base salary, overtime and bonuses
2. Less national taxes and contributions
3. Less pension payments and other deductions
4. Finally, work out the net salary to be paid to each employee

Therefore, payroll must be done accurately and on time as per the accepted legal framework of the market you are working in. For Britain, this is HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC), the administrative body for all things taxation, but it’s one complicated beast. Say hello to payroll software, here to save the day.

The benefits of ADP payroll services

What do payroll services do?

Payroll providers carry out a range of services for companies who don’t wish to run an in-house payroll. These include calculating employees’ pay, making any necessary deductions such as retirement contributions, keeping accurate records and filing taxes with HMRC.

What are payroll managed services?

If you choose as a business to hand over every payroll process to a trusted outsourced provider like ADP, these are known as payroll managed services. You can also outsource your human resources information system (HRIS), so that your HR and payroll functions are unified for a complete view of your business data. This transparency can benefit your operational efficiency and strategic decision-making as a result.

Who needs payroll services?

Is your business struggling with running in-house payroll? Can’t afford the time or expense to recruit, train and retain accounting or HR professionals? You could benefit from outsourced payroll services. You’ll save the costs of an in-house department, and avoid the complexity of reporting to Government authorities. Plus, say goodbye to manual errors and potential fines for missing compliance deadlines.

Why ask ADP to process payroll for me?

Using ADP to manage your payroll gives you peace of mind, while freeing up time for you and your staff. Using our online payroll system syncs your payroll data with other solutions, like time tracking, benefits and compliance software, saving you money and noncompliance penalties. We take your data protection extremely seriously, which is why we add an extra level of governance to your employee data.

What are the different payroll services provided by ADP?

ADP offers a processing service with a hosted platform for our clients to manage data entry; or a managed service offering online payroll services, solutions and software for businesses of all sizes. Our managed service offers two forms of payments, via BACs or a payroll disbursement service where we pay employees and HMRC direct. Our payroll services can integrate with time and attendance tracking. Plus, we also automatically calculate deductions for taxes and retirement contributions, providing expert support to help make sure you stay compliant with all applicable rules and regulations.

Will ADP payroll services do my taxes for me?

ADP helps companies manage payroll taxes by automating deductions from employee wages and making sure the right amount of money is delivered to the government, based on the latest payroll tax rules and regulations.

Will ADP payroll services integrate with my current software?

Yes. You can also start with ADP payroll and then add on other ADP services such as time and attendance, HR, talent, data and more as you need them.

Does ADP have online payroll tools or a mobile app for employees?

ADP mobile solutions give employees access to their payroll information and benefits, no matter where they are. Employees can complete a variety of tasks, such as view their payslips, manage their time and attendance, and enter time-off requests.
