Celebrating National Payroll Week 2019

Taking place 2-6 September, National Payroll Week was established to raise the profile and awareness of payroll in the UK.

Payroll is a vital function in our organisation, ensuring all of our people are paid accurately and on time. The department scored very well in the most recent staff survey, with positive feedback from the vast majority of colleagues.

National Payroll week aims to demonstrate the impact the payroll industry has in the UK, through the collection of income tax and National Insurance – which is expected to contribute in the region of £301bn to the UK economy in 2019/20.

Within SecuriGroup, the Payroll team manage this vital function for all SecuriGroup and SGL colleagues. Each week, the team process the salaries of more than 2,000 people – and pride themselves on the accuracy of this process.

We spoke to SecuriGroup Payroll Manager, Margaret Brown, at the start of National Payroll Week 2019 for her thoughts:

This awareness week is a great opportunity for us to showcase the hard work the qualified professionals within the Payroll team carry out week in, week out, to ensure all of our colleagues are paid accurately.

Over and above the standard payroll processes, the team manages other related functions, including salary sacrifices, the pension scheme, calculating reimbursements, overtime, holiday pay, and maintains compliance with tax laws.

If there is anything we can help you with, please contact the team directly and we will help to resolve it for you.
