Payroll software FAQs

A payroll software is a cloud-based or on-premises solution for paying your staff. It increases the accuracy of inputting and managing all payroll data, guaranteeing that employees receive the necessary payment on time.


With an approved payroll software, you can comply with the government’s tax requirements, provide customised and automated payments, and keep track of all payroll documents in one place.

When choosing the best HR payroll software for your business, you should consider a number of factors. These include your business size and needs, the features offered by the software, the software provider’s reputation and customer support, its integration options and, finally, its pricing. It’s important to do your research, compare different options and read reviews before making a decision. Learn more about choosing the best payroll software for SMBs.

A dedicated and efficient payroll software will free up time and resources in the business. Without a reliable payroll software or team, you’ll run the threat of disengagement and a bad reputation with your employees. 


Payroll is also there so you comply with employment laws. It’s a legal obligation to register your business, check the right’s to work of your employees and comply with the government's method of paying tax. Failure to comply with payroll requirements will ultimately lead to a fine from the government.

Payroll software needs to be HMRC accredited so you can report crucial PAYE data online. If you’re a new business, you’ll need to register as an employer with HMRC to get the references you need to start paying your employees through payroll software.

A HR payroll system cost will depend on the number of staff that you employ, and the frequency with which you pay them. There is no fixed rate for payroll software. Larger companies may require more complex systems with more functionality, therefore costing more. At People HR our prices are transparent, monthly and come with no hidden fees. You can even try a trial for free.
