Media Release: Increased demand for Empire’s payroll services

EMPIRE, a leading Scottish employment law, HR and payroll firm, has a seen an increase in demand for payroll services – due to the recent legislative changes, including PAYE tax and the yearly increase to minimum wage, which can be difficult for employers to keep up-to-date with.

Empire payroll manager, Louise Mitchell, said: “Payroll can be complicated to understand and control but it is an essential function within a business, as it can directly impact your staff.

“Many businesses are also struggling to stay on top of all the recent changes in the law, including changes to PAYE tax and Auto Enrolment Pensions, all of which a payroll team could take care of.”

She continues: “Payroll can be a stressful task for many employers and can often be complicated to understand, as well as creating risks if they do not comply with all the legal requirements, which are updated regularly.

“Utilising a payroll team can the take care of hassle, allowing business owners to focus on other parts of the business that may be more important.”

Empire, which is headquartered in Aberdeen and also has offices in Glasgow, operates a payroll department with a wealth of knowledge and expertise in payroll services, annual returns, P11D’s, BACS processing, accounting and bookkeeping.

Outsourcing can create real and tangible benefits for your business as it is cost effective, reduces stress, improves productivity and it also minimises the risks for employers.

For smaller businesses, there may be only one person handling the payroll for the business so if they are ill or on holiday the payroll will not get done.

Outsourcing the payroll process will ensure this function is completed, therefore keeping employees happy.

The firm has a diverse range of clients across the UK, with employee numbers ranging from three to 13,000 and provide a commercially focused employment law and HR support service, including a 24-hour telephone advice line, HR consultancy, tribunal and health and safety support.
