Smart Managed Payroll: FAQs

What is managed payroll?

What is managed payroll? Managed payroll refers to the outsourcing of payroll processing and management to a third-party provider. With managed payroll, the third party takes responsibility for calculating employee wages, taxes and deductions, generating the reports and data required by HMRC, distributing employee payslips and generating other pay-related documentation. Managed payroll providers may also assist with other activities, such as pension enrolment.

What are the benefits of using a managed payroll service?

The benefits of managed payroll is that payroll is processed efficiently and in line with legislation, saving time, ensuring compliance and freeing up resources to focus on more strategic activities. An added benefit of the Cezanne HR payroll processing service is data is held within Cezanne HR’s secure, GDPR-compliant system. This avoids the risks associated with emailing or inputting payroll data into a third-party system and provides HR and business leaders with much greater visibility over important payroll data.

Who is Cezanne HR’s managed payroll service best for?

The managed payroll service is best for mid-sized UK companies that pay their employees monthly, every four weeks, fortnightly or weekly, and are looking to outsource their payroll processing service to payroll experts while still keeping control of other HR management activities. As the payroll service is integrated with the Cezanne HR software, it means HR teams can outsource labour-intensive payroll management without compromising the security or integrity of their HR data.
