How much do accountants charge for UK payroll services

As a general rule our fees for outsourced payroll services are calculated on a per-employee-per-month (PEPM) basis.  However, pricing per employee can vary dependent on the number of employees and the level of service required. 

If you pay your employees on a weekly basis, then you’ll be charged on a per-employee-per-week basis. This is likely to be more expensive than on a monthly basis because, as a payroll provider, we’ll be doing around 4 times as much work. 

We also provide options on a fixed monthly rate for our services. This can work where your business has a steady headcount however, it’s not applicable in situations where you want to pay bonuses, or operate commissions to employees. 

There are also set-up fees that work on the per-employee basis. This is because it takes time and resource to upload your staff for processing on our systems, and software. To ensure accurate processing, and peace of mind for our clients, our setup work includes a test run prior to going live.
