Carval's flexible software and outsourced payroll options

Trying to decide whether to outsource your payroll or process it in-house? Carval's pick and mix range of software and services offers you the flexibility to find a solution that's just right for your business.

Outsourcing your payroll to Carval's payroll bureau puts a dedicated team of experts at your fingertips, without the expense associated with staffing and processing your payroll in-house. However there are also benefits to having access to your own payroll software on a day-to-day basis too, such as easy data entry and reporting, whether you choose to ultimately process your payroll yourself or outsource this aspect to our team. We can also process BACS for you, or just provide listings if preferred.

Here are the services which Carval can offer:

Enhanced Bureau Service

This option includes all the features of our standard bureau service but with the additional flexibility of in-house access to your own payroll software for data entry and ad hoc reporting. We take care of the actual processing, including RTI and payslip production. You can have your payroll software installed in-house or on the Carval Cloud and we can help you decide which is right for you.

Fully Managed Payroll Service

With this option Carval becomes your payroll department. Not only do we manage every aspect of the payroll process but we will also liaise with HMRC for you and provide your employees with a helpline for any queries that they may have.

Integrated HR Software

Any of Carval's payroll service options can interface securely with our HR software so that you can benefit from an integrated HR and Payroll solution and your employees can benefit from self-service access to payslips, P60s and P11Ds.

Integrated Time and Attendance Systems

If your company operates complex shift patterns, has a lot of hourly paid employees or is one of the increasing number of organisations to offer the benefit of flexible working, then Carval offers a range of workforce management solutions that will assist you in planning, measuring, analysing and accurately calculating the hours worked and in creating an input file for the payroll system. It reduces the need for employees to complete timesheets and also speeds the calculation of hours and processes for payroll purposes.

Payslip Service

We can print, seal and distribute payslips for you...even if you don't use our bureau service.
