Frequently Asked Questions

With over 20 years of experience, we are one of the most versatile payroll companies in the UK.

From all providers out there, why is your business different?

Finding the right provider for your company can become a problem of quality and trust, especially now in the world of the internet with so many payroll companies to choose from. But before quantity, there is quality, and with us, you’ll get:

• A dedicated account manager that you can always contact for help when you need it the most.
• Highly qualified experts in extreme cases so you can focus on what you do best.
• The assurance your payroll is always completed to perfection and delivered on time, every time.
• Full support from our plain-speaking specialists that free you from the burden of outsourcing and unnecessary stress.

Give us one main reason why we should choose CPS and not another company

First and foremost, it is all about the team behind the stage. Here at CPS, we have a profound understanding of different classes and categories of requirements according to your business specifics, and all the potential complexities payroll-related services might face.

For that, we have put together a team that is highly specialised in a wide range of sectors that, when put together, make complex shift calculations, benefit allowances, holiday accruals, tax calculations, expense reimbursements, pension auto-enrolment assessment and all manner of payroll related activities fall perfectly into place.

Sometimes with payroll companies, there are hidden charges. What’s the case with CPS?

Unlike most outsourcing companies, which have variable costs according to the company size, the level of administrative tasks, the time required, or the complexity, we pride ourselves in complete transparency of operations and upfront immutable costs.

As a leading payroll company, CPS commences the agreement with a defined set of service levels that both parties mutually agree to. We charge for our services on an all-inclusive cost per payslip basis and so clients are aware of both current costs, and, as their company grows and requirements evolve, the future costs of our outsourcing service.

Does your company provide processing payrolls for sectors that require special assistance?

While most payrolls have comparable requirements, there are particular cases when payroll companies must accommodate custom services, especially in instances where sectors have precise operational rules that require special consideration. This may be items such as complex shift premium calculations or multi-site costing requirements.

Here at CPS, we have a dedicated team of specialists trained to work with companies in specific sectors: finance, nursing homes, leisure, schools and other academic organisations, charities and even recruitment companies. Whatever sector your company operates in, contact us today for a free outsourcing quote.

What are the main benefits of using CPS compared to other companies?

There are numerous benefits of using our payroll company, yet the most prized one by our clients is the joy of no longer stressing about becoming a payroll expert.

As it is our responsibility to stay up to date with the fast-changing regulations, practices and methods, by outsourcing your obligations to our company, you gain access to top experts and professional services.

Another key benefit of using our professional payroll services – instead of an in-house team – is the all-year-round coverage, in unfortunate situations when your payroll person is on holiday or off sick.

Finally, with our services, you’re always on the go. There’s no need to invest in new software or to make sure you have the latest updates.

What makes CPS more reliable & trustworthy than other companies?

It is our step-by-step approach that makes us one of the most reliable and trustworthy payroll companies out there.

First, right after the enrolment phase, we assign you a dedicated account manager ready to answer any questions you might have.

Your dedicated account manager knows your name, business details and needs, and will help you avoid time-consuming ticket systems, telephone queues, and lengthy email exchanges when you need our help.

Second, no matter where you are in the world, as long as you have internet access, you’ll always have full access to your payroll information. All services we offer are cloud-based, available 24/7, every day of the year.

Last but not least, it is our team who make us stand out from the competition. When you choose CPS, you choose leading specialists qualified in addressing any business needs.

How much do your services cost?

Every company is different, with different structures and needs. The ‘one-size-fits-all’ concept never works in business; for that, we never provide batch pricing.

Here at CPS, we know that every payroll price has to be assessed and calculated according to each business’s needs.

To calculate the right price, we require specific sets of information such as the number of weekly/fortnightly/4-weekly paid staff, P11D, Pensions Automatic Enrolment support, and other services over and above basic payroll system.

How secure is my data with your organisation?

Ensuring data security and customer confidentiality are crucial to everything we do here at CPS.

Handling and dealing with payroll services requires processing vast amounts of sensitive information that relates to your staff; names, social security numbers, bank details, addresses, and salary information.

From GDPR through to physical and digital security, we leave no stone unturned to make sure your data is dealt with safely and securely, protecting you and your company from data loss, leakage, and misuse. Your information is safely hosted in specialist UK data centres, which are operated by market leaders in the sector. More than that, our core systems are replicated to multiple servers, monitored 24/7 and daily backed up.

As a company, we continue to invest in research and development, ensuring that all our payroll company products are Cyber Essential & Automatic enrolment certified, tested and approved by HMRC.

Most internal IT and payroll departments perform structural changes to use CPS's services?

CPS advanced payroll solution does not require qualified experts or dedicated payroll professionals, it just works as an extension of your organization. With instant access, it’ll add value by reducing costs and increasing efficiency and accuracy.
