With TopSource we were able to have employees hired or maintained in Nutreco without having to establish an entity in these countries for only 1-2 employees. I think most countries are covered by TopSource, so they can help us with almost all cases. Good advice on conditions and direct contact with employees. Invoicing done directly to the company. An easy process compared to hiring employees by ourselves.

"We searched the market for a local payroll vendor in 2014 and we chose TopSource as our partner. We were looking for error free and timely payroll processing and TopSource Worldwide delivers this, saving us time and money. We have worked together for 8 years now and would recommend them to anyone.”

TopSource Worldwide has a detailed and methodical onboarding process that made it easy for us to get set up and running with our UK employee. They were able to take the worry out of trying to comply with all local laws and regulations. Because they have this knowledge we do not have to research on our own and hope we are in compliance. This has saved us hours of time and gives both the company and employees a sense of security.

Easier than you might think. For example, our streamlined onboarding processes make the switch as seamless and stress-free for businesses as possible. Allied to our 20 years of experience, we can get your payroll outsourcing solutions up and running in as little as four weeks.

When should you outsource a UK payroll service?

You can outsource payroll at any time within the tax year. We have a range of processes in place to manage any complicated transitions, including statutory filings if you make the change during a particular tax year.

What is NI in UK payroll?

NI stands for National Insurance and is one of the main forms of social security contributions in the UK, helping fund state benefits, pensions and the NHS. Employees and employers both have to make NI contributions at differing rates.

Is my payroll data secure?

It is when you partner with Topsource. We are certified to internationally recognised ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 standards, and our processes are SSAE18 and ISAE 3402 compliant. All of these undergo rigorous validation, audit and testing annually.
