Here are the answers to some commonly asked questions:
Why should I consider an Outsourced Payroll Service ?
Outsourcing your payroll requirements gives you the opportunity to allocate more of your time and resources to tasks like revenue generation and the management of your organisation. Outsourced payroll will ensure continuity of payroll processing through holidays, illness absences and other planned and unplanned leave. It also reduces and eliminates the need for on-going training and updates to stay in line with changing legislation.
Who is the payroll service suitable for?
Our payroll services are suitable for companies and organisation of all sizes. That includes retail, restaurants, schools, manufacturing, service providers, etc.
How does the outsourced payroll service work?
MPAS will act as your revenue agent for Employer PAYE. This will enable us to do things like file employer revenue returns, set up new employees and obtain new tax information for employees, on your behalf.
We will gather the necessary data to set up your payroll. All you have to do is to provide us with any payroll changes or grant us access to your timekeeping/payroll system. Here are some of the core payroll services we offer:
- Calculation of payments and deductions based on the data provided to us.
- Generation of reports and payslips.
- Providing banking files for electronic transfers or reports for cheque, cash payments.

Do I have to wait until year end or can I outsource payroll now?

My payments to employees vary - some are paid weekly, some monthly!
We can provide solutions to any number or combination of employees.
