Payroll

Harwood Hutton’s BACS-approved payroll bureau runs large and often complex payrolls on behalf of scores of businesses, some with hundreds of employees. We can run weekly or monthly and we pride ourselves on a customised and flexible service.

We can submit payroll-related transactions through the BACS service on behalf of third parties securely, ensuring employees and HMRC are paid on time. Unlike other bureaux, we do not require advance payment into our client account.

We can provide electronic payslips, which allow historic information, including the year-end returns and P60s, to be stored online for both employees and employers to access the review for up to seven years.


We guarantee:
  • To process a client's payroll within 48 hours of receiving the data
  • To use HMRC-approved software
  • To meet all the client's pay dates when information is supplied to the agreed timescales
  • The confidentiality of payroll information
  • To deal with any Statutory Pay calculations
  • To deal with Pension deductions
  • To advise on tax and National Insurance matters
  • To ensure clients stay compliant on Auto Enrolment reporting obligations, reducing the risk of fines

Client Testimonials
  • I always get quick, clear and definitive responses from the Harwood Hutton tax team – commercial answers to commercial issues.

    Robin Berry – Morgan Management
  • Right from the outset Harwood Hutton gave us direction and great advice – and that advice has evolved over the years as we’ve grown. We’re both medium-sized companies providing a bespoke service – one furniture, one accountancy – and the relationship works.

    Andy McCarron, McCarron and Co
  • I’m deeply impressed with Harwood Hutton’s extensive knowledge of tax arrangements for residential and commercial property landlords.

    Qadeer Ahmed, MD, ABA Finance
  • They really took their time to understand what was important to us and our business and the expertise we required. Whoever we speak to at HH, we get the same fantastic response and technical input. It’s a real partnership.

    Edward Finch, group MD, MRIB insurance brokers
  • I have worked with the directors at Harwood Hutton on a number of mutual client matters over many years. The reassurance of their clear, commercial and focussed advice is one of the main reasons I regard this as one of my most valuable professional relationships.

    Frank Wessely, Partner, Quantuma LLP
  • Harwood Hutton never seem to rest on their laurels. They are always seeking out new avenues and ways to improve their offering. A very forward-thinking company with staff who are always well briefed and who approach each task with drive.

    Karl Austen, MD, Surefoot Communications
  • We have engaged Harwood Hutton in several areas of structuring, including VAT issues, decoupling an SPV from a group structure and HMRC clearance for a transaction. The team have exceeded all expectations by being proactive, measured and very thorough.

    Adam Fawsitt, Director, FHT Limited
  • We moved to Harwood Hutton as they delivered a succinct and professional proposal. If anything, we have been more impressed post-move. They are a fantastic company to work with. They do truly differentiate. They have the skills and capabilities of a mega firm but with a personal service.
