A Nantwich-based entrepreneur has launched a payroll solutions company in lockdown to drive up standards in the temporary contracting industry.
Simon Sanderson, who has worked in the industry since 2001, launched Your Payroll to deliver temporary payroll solutions to agencies based in the hospitality, construction and recruitment sectors across the North West.
He is joined at Your Payroll’s Altrincham head office by a team with a combined 80 years’ experience in the field, and backed by tech entrepreneur, Paul Ashby.
Simon said: “We want to shake up the sector. I have thought for a while that the sector was becoming complacent with many payroll companies simply going through the motions without thinking about the value – or importance- their role has for their clients.
“This has been brought into focus by the pandemic, with both contractors and businesses facing levels of uncertainty they may not have ever experienced before.
“Your Payroll will establish working partnerships rather than a supplier-customer partnership with clients, which will make the temporary payroll process as smooth as possible for all parties – so everyone has one less thing to worry about and can focus on their day jobs.”
Your Payroll offers a ‘no penalty’ policy for agencies facing late time submissions or missed payments and free timesheet advances for contractors, to stop them turning to high interest loans.
The company is also launching free virtual workshops in January 2021 to prepare people for the incoming IR35 tax reforms that will take effect in April 2021.
Simon added: “The workshops will prepare workers, contractors and businesses for the massive impact IR35 is expected to have on sectors such as construction, IT and engineering.
“We can make sure the sectors we support are ready for it and continue running as smoothly as possible in what is already a turbulent economy.”
