Irrespective of whether you’re setting up a new academy or you’re responsible for the management or administration of an existing academy, payroll is likely to be high on your list of priorities. Thanks to the different treatments of different members of staff in academies, payroll can be a real burden. The introduction of Real Time Information, plus the importance of getting payroll right, month-in and month-out means that more and more academies and businesses in general are choosing to outsource their payroll responsibilities.
