Payroll Outsourcing for Accountants

Our outsourced payroll service for accountants broadens the range of products you can offer to your clients and increase overall fees. It’s also great for finance directors in business because it reduces the amount of time and energy they and their teams need to spend on this complex, time consuming job.

Fortunately, outsourcing payroll for accountants is relatively straightforward. It’s one of the financial processes most commonly outsourced for good reason: it’s complex, technical work that nonetheless makes sense as a discrete function.

Outsourced payroll you can trust

Our payroll team is a well-engineered machine. From the basics of making sure each staff member gets paid the right amount on the right date to the more fiddly business of managing deductions, they’ve got it covered.

Preparation and issuing of electronic payslips is also part of the service, delivered through your systems with your branding.

They know HMRC’s statutory requirements intimately and apply them carefully in practice, including management of staff pension deductions, including auto-enrolment pension schemes.

We work with your systems, from Quickbooks to Sage and all points between, using processes designed to accomodate you, so that the whole thing feels seamless and reassuringly straightforward.

We’re also an official payroll bureau

We’re proud to announce that we are officially recognised as a payroll bureau.

A payroll bureau is an accounting service provider that specialises in supplying outsourced payroll services to other firms.

We can supply HMRC with information on your behalf, and receive and act upon information from HMRC. We’re your payroll experts, so you don’t have to worry about the expenses of your own in-house payroll specialist.

You’ll have a clear audit trail, have all of your payroll dealt with in a timely and accurate manner, and all of the confidentiality and professionalism that you’d expect.

It’s time for a chat

A conversation is the best way for you to explore how outsourcing could work for your accounting practice. Whether you’d rather talk, put your questions and details in writing, or visit our office in Sittingbourne, contact us to take the first step today.

With Diamond Outsourcing on board it has freed up my time. I no longer work evenings or weekends, I have more time with the family, I have left my 9 to 5 job. I concentrate on the areas of accountancy I love whilst they do the rest. We have an aligned vision to grow my practice and through help and mentoring we are growing together day by day!
