Did you know that some business owners are spending more than 20 hours a month dealing with
payroll and associated tasks?

Saint & Co recently surveyed businesses across Cumbria and Dumfries and Galloway to find out their
payroll behaviours, and this is what we found:

• 20% of businesses spend 20 hours per month on salary runs;
• 68% of respondents admitted they dislike doing their own payroll, but still choose to do so;
• Nearly 100% of respondents said they do their own payroll because they have the perception that it is expensive to outsource.

There are a lot of misconceptions around payroll services and it can cost as little as £25 per month + VAT for a sole director including pension if they outsource it to professional accountants.

If looking after your salary and payroll operations in-house is causing you a headache and is very much a ‘silent time thief’, don’t hesitate to contact our specialist team on 01228 534371.
