Payroll Solutions for the Manufacturing and Engineering Sector

Businesses in the manufacturing and engineering sector are in a constant struggle for productivity and profitability. It’s all about automating and streamlining processes, to maintain the same quality and efficiency that build your reputation.

In this climate, the last thing you need is time-consuming, manual and paper-based processes. Especially when it comes to your payroll. Outsourcing your payroll to us can help you improve the operational and cost efficiency of your business.

We have decades of shared payroll experience and an in-depth knowledge of the manufacturing and engineering sector. This allows us to deliver a range of bespoke payroll support and solutions that are built around your operation’s needs. We are HMRC accredited, so you have the peace of mind that comes from knowing your payroll and tax needs are covered.


How Does Payroll Outsourcing Work?

Payroll can be a complicated business. It involves setting up a series of complex processes that are exacerbated by tax and pensions compliance. Double shifts, overtime rates and performance-related bonuses can also create additional headaches. What’s more, when mistakes are made by managers whose attention is spread too thin, it can have a significant effect on everything from employee morale and productivity to cash flow.

As an accredited Bacs-approved bureau, we work with banks to ensure that your employees are paid accurately and on time. Our bespoke services are built around your needs and budget. So that you enjoy peace of mind without unnecessary add-ons and costs. Outsourcing your manufacturing payroll can directly address the pain points your industry faces.

Scalable solutions for rapid growth

The engineering and manufacturing sectors are growing globally. But with rapid deployment comes a range of logistical challenges. Not least of which is ensuring governance over payroll and HR systems.

A surge in growth needs to be buoyed by a strong team of talented employees. All of whom deserve to be fairly and promptly remunerated. Our scalable solutions are designed to keep your payroll needs covered as your organisation grows. All while remaining in line with HMRC’s requirements.

Managing pensions contributions

While tax is a huge part of payroll compliance, businesses in the manufacturing and engineering sectors also have to manage pension plans and auto enrolment.

As of 2018, auto enrolment has been mandatory for new employees. But many manufacturing and engineering firms struggle with the logistics of managing pension contributions. Outsourcing your payroll ensures that auto enrolment and pension contributions are taken care of.

Keeping up with legislative changes

The engineering & manufacturing sector has to be extremely mindful of legislation such as health and safety. As such, it is no stranger to legislative changes. But businesses in this sector often find that payroll brings with it its own legislative considerations. Minimum wage requirements, National Insurance contributions, and changing rules around Employment Allowances can be tricky to navigate. And the cost of non compliance can be extremely high.

Outsourcing your payroll means that you can leave all matters of compliance to the experts. So your business stands up to scrutiny whatever legislative changes may come along.

Managing complex payroll needs across multiple factories and projects

If you manage multiple sites handling multiple projects, your logistical headaches are multiplied. Keeping your team happy, motivated and productive can ensure healthy revenues across multiple sites.

Our suite of payroll solutions is infinitely scalable and can be applied to multiple sites as your business grows. Complex pay arrangements are no problem, either. We can support you to manage multiple projects across multiple sites at different rates of pay.
