Payroll Options is a specialist Payroll Bureau

When we started as a payroll bureau in 1991, our aim was to simplify the process of accurately and efficiently paying employees. This is still our ethos today.

As a payroll bureau, we specialise in providing outsourced payroll services for other businesses. We process over 40,000 payslips every month for over 600 clients. Accuracy and efficiency are in our DNA.

Less Hassle

We find that many of our customers do not want the ‘hassle’ of payroll.  They are looking for peace of mind and reliability and we pride ourselves on being a payroll partner they can speak to if they have any questions.


We will supply HMRC with information on behalf of our customers and may receive and act upon information from HMRC regarding those businesses.  We are a source of expertise for our customers so that they do not have to employ their own payroll specialist.

There are numerous internal audits to ensure RTI compliance with HMRC and we ensure these are conducted efficiently on your behalf.


Our customers enjoy a reliable payroll that means no disgruntled staff on pay day, and by planning and scheduling your payroll we can help you avoid HMRC fines and penalties. Every payroll is processed in parallel by two members of staff and then cross checked for errors.  This helps in our aim for 100% first time accuracy.

Confidentiality Guaranteed

Some businesses outsource because they are concerned with confidentiality.  The reports can only be seen by designated members of the team, and if employee payment is made via BACS, the bank statement may only show the bulk wage transaction.  Timesheets and time and attendance approval can also be more easily delegated, as hourly rates are held at the bureau and so only hours need to be submitted.

A clear audit trail can also be an advantage.  There is a clear separation between information supplied to the payroll bureau, the information sent to HMRC and the reports received by the business.  The information sent to the payroll bureau can even come from one department, whereas the reports are sent back to another.

Payroll Specialists

We find that many business owners or HR departments worry each month about doing the payroll in house. By using our services, they delegate it to us which means they can then focus on their day job where they can add more value to the business.

Expert Customer Support

We offer expert customer support via phone and email during business hours to answer all your questions and provide advice and guidance with your payroll.

By outsourcing your payroll to Payroll Options you will experience a hassle free service, enjoying time and cost savings through a simple but powerful solution.
