Payroll costing schedule

The payroll cost schedule is currently being revised to make it easier for clients and prospective clients to calculate an approximate cost of having their payroll outsourced to SME Payroll Services.  (proposed new prices below - under revision due to the new RTI filing requirements)

We want to be open and upfront about our charges, but the schedule of costs is a guide only because we believe many clients prefer, or can benefit from, systems being tailored to your precise needs.  Therefore, before setting up any payroll service, we want to talk through with you what your requirements are, how we can help, and quote accordingly - this way we both understand what you want, and when, and what we need to supply.
