Working with Sussex Payroll Services Ltd

Denise Buchan, MD met Sussex Payroll Services at various networking events and was not happy with her payroll provider. She soon decided to move her payroll to us and she has this to say about us:

Classic Consulting has engaged the services of Sussex Payroll for over four years. The initial set up was seamless – in fact, I do distinctly remember Sussex Payroll actually completing all the ‘donkey work’ for me as I was so manic! Naturally I expected a few teething problems but I am pleased to say the transition was completely error free, there wasn’t a single issue and there hasn’t been since. Any questions or queries we’ve had have been quickly resolved, and I receive full co-operation if I need to put in the payroll run at the last minute – which has been frequent (sorry). Sussex run both my temporary and staff payroll – All our work is done with minimum fuss, on time, and always with enthusiasm and attention to detail. So often, the preparation of payroll is an administrative headache – particularly when you consider that, as an agency, our temporary staff varies from week to week, both in numbers and hours worked.
Sussex payroll take all this in their stride, and we could not imagine a more efficient team working on our behalf. Their management of our payroll processing has proved invaluable – especially with the implementation of Real Time Information. We received clear communication from Sussex about how their service would be compliant with the government’s RTI initiative. The team are always available to help and no task is too big or too small. Any needs arising from the arrival of new personnel and the departure of employees are always met, and changes implemented with patience. Sussex Payroll’s response to enquiries and queries is timely, and our reports are produced with both accuracy and speed.
Our payroll has doubled and our requirements have become ever more complex and demanding – Sussex payroll have always responded positively to any request and when new internal staff have been engaged, they have personally come into the office and met them – ensuring they fully up to speed.

Classic Consulting benefit from the following by using Sussex Payroll Services Ltd:
– Efficient and accurate payments
– Streamlined payroll transactions
– Reduced risk through PAYE compliance
– Improved audit trails
– Tax and social security returns
– Quick resolution of queries to prevent pay delays
– Production of ad hoc management reports
– Real-time management information to support business decisions
– Professional payroll expertise
– Advice and guidance from the team
– Dedicated payroll contact
– Localised payroll expertise

I would have no hesitation in recommending Sussex Payroll and would urge any business, large or small to utilise an organisation who take pride in their work, are efficient and above all have exemplary Customer Services.
As a testament to their work, all of Classic’s outsourcing has been brought in house recently – the only exception is the payroll – I do not believe this could be run as smoothly in house or with any other organisation.
Sussex Payroll are certainly a company under recognised for their excellent service.
