How we can help you

We take full responsibility for the payroll and auto-enrolment and guarantee our quality

We are leaders in technology when it comes your payroll, so of course our payslips are online. We want to help you with your business, for you to be more efficient, to concentrate on your business and not be distracted by the payroll, with issues, worries and stress. Furthermore we want to help you improve your processes as part of this ambition

That’s why when we start with you we’ll examine how your pay data is compiled and how it is presented to us. In both areas we will look to improve the process, to make it easier for you, with less time required and less risk of errors or misunderstandings. Where suitable we use an easy data entry portal which avoids emails and reduces the risk of errors or misunderstandings
Sometimes for larger payrolls we use customised Excels

We’ll also review the payroll timetable as we often find that time pressures can be eased or even removed

Another example of how we could help you is in dealing with HMRC – we are very experienced. We’ll have no hesitation in contacting them on your behalf, should the need arise. This will save you a lot of time and worry

We’re always working with you in partnership to improve your business life, rather than just be a service at arms length. So just ask if we can help you – it’s our pleasure to respond

Dan Green, MD, Bridges for Communities

"We have used BookCheck for several years now to professionally manage and administer our company payroll.  It is a specific area which becomes more and more complicated, especially with the introduction of pension Auto Enrolment.  The prompt and correct payment of salaries is one of the most important tasks for any company and we continue to totally rely on BookCheck for this especially now that they have automated the process which significantly reduced the administration.  We would truly recommend BookCheck."

Ian Heather, MD, HRML

"I feel compelled to write to mention the excellent work and service I've just had from Christine Beard. 

I had to send our payroll info for September to her yesterday as I'm stopping for holidays this afternoon. I hadn't thought to advise that I would need to be doing it early this month so she wouldn’t have been expecting it. However she agreed to get it back to me this morning, and even waited when I sent her something I'd forgotten yesterday.

It's brilliant having such a team to back me up so cheerfully and efficiently - big brownie points!"

Ellaine Cameron, Relate Gloucestershire and Swindon
