How do payroll outsourcing services work?

Your employees’ information is transferred to ADP as your payroll outsourcing provider, including information such as hire dates, job titles and pay rates. ADP then calculates and transfers pay to each employee, accurately and on time, on your behalf via a direct deposit or payroll cheque. If your employees clock in and out, we will process this data. Each pay period is taken care of by the payroll outsourcing software.

We also calculate and pay your payroll taxes and insurance, and issue annual or monthly reports on all transactions, giving you meaningful data that can help you improve productivity and drive your business forward.

Tax and National Insurance contributions will be paid for you when they’re due, and reports provided to your business. Your payroll outsourcing provider may also be able to take care of new hire onboarding paperwork and required employee tax documents.
