We moved our payroll to Bishop Fleming on the day we became a single academy trust on 1st January 2012 and have been with them ever since. It was one of the best decisions we made. Since then we have grown into a multi-academy trust with 8 schools including secondary and primary schools and have had a smooth transition for each set of schools that have joined us. We have worked closely with Bishop Fleming to create a payroll process that works smoothly for both organisations. The staff at Bishop Fleming are helpful, knowledgeable and flexible and provide an excellent service not only for payroll but with pension returns and end of year data. The Olympus Academies Trust

Why outsourcing is a good solution

Provides peace of mind and reduces risk

With the growth of employment red tape, payroll administration has become increasingly complex, with constant changes to legislation.

Saves money

Outsourcing can save money, not only by removing the need to employ trained staff but also the requirement to purchase and keep up to date specialist payroll software and the associated license fees.

Frees up valuable time

Outsourcing payroll saves valuable time, energy and stress, freeing up staff and enabling businesses or organisations to concentrate on their core business objectives.

Payroll Software

Star logo

Bishop Fleming’s payroll experts have selected Star payroll software to manage our client payrolls. This is accredited by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) and is one of the UK’s favourite payroll software packages, favoured by the majority of UK accountancy firms.
The software is packed with features that enables us to run an effective and compliant payroll for all our payroll clients, providing us with control of both payroll processes and employee information.

The Logo for APT; automated payment transfer

Being a BACSTEL-IP approved bureau, we also use APT software to manage our clients’ net salary and third party payment requirements. This is one of the most sophisticated and scalable payment BACS gateway software solutions available and integrates neatly with our Star payroll software.
