Sadly, school payroll is far from simple
By its very nature, school payroll is complex. Even in small primary schools there is often a whole range of different types of staff with different pay grades. Secondary schools, academies and colleges also often have a real challenge on their hands with this issue. If you’re responsible for an educational establishment and are finding payroll a challenge, we’re not surprised.
Even small businesses are having trouble getting their heads around dealing with HMRC, Real Time Information and Pensions Auto Enrolment. When you add different grade staff and different pension schemes into the mix, like you commonly have in educational establishments, things can quickly become a nightmare.
All of that said, your staff need and want to get paid the right amount at the right time. The complexities you’re facing behind the scenes simply aren’t their concern. HMRC won’t take pity on you either if you get it wrong. That’s why it makes great sense from every angle to outsource your school payroll.
Great reasons to outsource your school payroll
One of the best reasons to outsource your payroll is that your people have better things to do. If you have accounts or admin people juggling with complex and constantly changing payroll, you’ll know what we meant by that.
The payroll arena is forever changing, and legislation and government policy are minefields when it comes to keeping up to date and doing what’s expected you at the right time. Even if you consider taking on a payroll expert a day or two a week, you’re still faced with the issue of how you cover if they’re off sick, on holiday or leave to go somewhere else.
When you outsource your payroll, you relieve yourself and your team of all these burdens. When you choose the right outsource partner, you get just that, a partner committed to your success. You get your people paid the right amount, at the right time, without having to worry about whether you’ve crossed all the regulatory ‘t’s and dotted all the legislative ‘i’s. You get real peace of mind.
