Thinking of switching payroll provider?

You’ve come to the right place.

Change is one of those things that unsettles people, particularly when it involves pay. Sometimes it’s just easier to stick with what you know, even if you could get a better service elsewhere. However, at People Group we’ve helped hundreds of recruitment agencies and contractors switch payroll provider. We’ve invested considerable time over the past 14 years making the process as seamless and simple as possible.

  • Mass migrations

  • Simple process

  • Fully managed

  • Exceptional service

Start your new journey in just three steps:

Step 1 – Choose your preferred payroll option

Umbrella payroll

The industry standard. As an outsourced alternative to PEO and agency PAYE, umbrella payroll gives you the freedom to concentrate on your business. Understood by contractors and provided with the full benefits package, it’s a reliable and rewarding option.

PEO (PAYE) payroll

Simplicity at its finest. Full PAYE with all benefits, no fee and simple pay slips. Not to mention complete transparency, supply chain security and efficiency tools. PEO protects your business on all fronts and is the preferred payroll option for contractors.

Construction Industry Scheme (CIS)

HMRC service for those genuinely self-employed workers within the construction industry. People CIS takes away all the burdens of administration and paperwork to allow your self-employed workers to simply get on with their contract role.

Step 2 – Decide whether you want compliance services included

Transforming paper into pixels

The award winning People Compliance software and management system is designed to get contractors cleared for work more efficiently, freeing up time and resources for recruitment agencies to focus elsewhere. Proven to reduce time to hire by up to 50% our compliance software provides instant oversight and management of any candidates’ compliance credentials at the touch of a button.

People Group offer a range of tailored compliance options from software only to full compliance outsourcing.
