Payroll software FAQs

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.

Visit our guide on What is Payroll Software to find out more about how it works, features, and benefits.

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.

Small businesses need payroll software to help them manage their payroll efficiently and accurately. Payroll software can automate many of the manual tasks associated with payroll, such as calculating wages, withholding taxes, and generating paychecks. This can save small businesses a significant amount of time and money, as well as ensure that they are in complying with UK payroll laws and regulations.

Managed in-house payroll refers to payroll processing that is handled internally, often using spreadsheets and basic payroll processing. In-house can be comfortable because it's inexpensive and your business has full control, but you may be outgrowing it if you’re seeing payroll errors or increased growth.

The next options for your business could either be scalable payroll software, or payroll outsourcing. Find out more in our managed in-house payroll vs outsourcing payroll guide.
