Best payroll software

Best payroll software

Didn't find your answer?

Hello,

I wonder if any of you had a recommendation for a payroll software?   We are a company with 8 employees and we'd probably prefer a cloud-based software as we have very good experience with Quickbooks online so far and like the ease of access.

Many thanks, all!

Highly rated

Not cloud based but 12Pay and Moneysoft are always well repped here

I agree

We love Moneysoft - a client recommended it to us so we use it for all our payroll now and we recommend it to clients.  Cheap and fabulously easy to use.

Not a fan of QB I must admit but then I've only had dealings with the accounts software, payroll may be OK.

If you are changing software

 

If you are changing software I would also consider who you are likely to be using in future regarding your impending auto enrolment obligations and ensure the provider's software will be a good fit.

QBO

Why not use QBO's integrated payroll feature?  It's free up to a certain number of employees - not too bad either

Yes, I am considering that also but want to hear recommendations, too!    Does QB payroll do everything you need?  Have you had experience with any other software that you could comment on?

Moneysoft for us - despite using QB for our accounts

We have 10 employees and use Moneysoft and it is a doddle (even my technophobe boss thinks so!). We decided against QB because we felt they were just exploiting us with constantly rising 'support' costs for the accounts package, with no discernible support available (the one time I needed it I got a very, very, very bad response). We felt if we signed up for the payroll as well those costs would just continue to escalate.

Moneysoft is £56 a year, easy to use and fast. At the risk of tempting fate it seems to be rock solid too.

Moneysoft

We used QuickBooks exclusively for Accounting and Payroll but required P11d's so we had to buy PKF P11d software.  However a couple of years ago we moved to Moneysoft for all our payroll need as it also produces P11d's, handles CIS, calculates redundancy payments (if required!) and has many other features.  We have it hosted so it is effectively cloud based

I doubt I would use QB desktop payroll again, but haven't ruled out the online offering for our smaller clients.

Moneysoft
We use Moneysoft, but it doesn't do EYUs. But then does any commercial software?

QBO + PaySuite

QuickBooks Online and PaySuite

 

Hi All,

 

Just wanted to Clarify that with QuickBooks Online (QBO), you get Payroll Free for up to 5 employees. Intuit Covers the cost for the first 5 employees for all QBO Users. After the initial 5 employees you pay Paysuite £1 per month per employee if you want to add in more.

 

We looked for the best in class cloud Payroll provider so The payroll solution within QuickBooks Online is 'Paysuite'. http://www.paysuite.co.uk/

 

It's fully integrated within QBO, its RTI compliant, all the journals are created in QBO when you carry out a pay run and all the relevant reports (p32's) are updated and can be downloaded, Payslips, Net Pay reports are all present within QBO.

 

Regarding Support: It's totally free support.

 

Pricing for QuickBooks Online: If you join the ProAdviser programme (Free to join) you also benefit from getting QBO Plus (retails normally at £29/m)  for £4.99 per month for life.

So in other words, if you want to use a cloud accounting solution (QuickBooks Online) with Free Payroll up to 5 employees (PaySuite).... all you will pay is £4.99 per month. 

http://www.intuit.co.uk/quickbooks-accounting-software/for-accountants.jsp

 

If you want to have a quick look at how Paysuite works with QBO here is a quick video around it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=76DoIjNrTWc

 

Thanks,

Payroll Software

As Auto Enrolment becomes an issue for companies, employers need to ask themselves one major question. Can the payroll software they use provide everything that is required for Auto Enrolment duties and deadlines? As DJKL mentions you need to think about Auto Enrolment now. For employers the preparation and file submissions can be complicated if your current payroll provider doesn’t have all the functions to help you with your Auto Enrolment duties. BrightPay is not a cloud based software but it is a payroll software that provides everything you need for Auto Enrolment. BrightPay caters for EYU’s also. There is a free 60 day trial too. No hidden support charges either.
