Academy Payroll Service

With the number of open Academies in the UK now approaching 3,500 there is an ever greater need for quality Academy payroll services as an alternative to the Local Authority.

But the level of payroll expertise and the complexity of terms and conditions and pensions mean that an education sector expert is the only alternative

For Academies and Multi Academy trusts there are other considerations and payroll needs beyond Local Authority schools who have simply made a decision to outsource.

Two typical academy payroll scenarios that need industry expertise would be 

1) Academies are typically a scheme employer for Teachers' Pension and LGPS meaning that they need to establish their employerstatus and report directly into these schemes rather than through the local authority.

2) Multi Academy Trusts (MAT's) come in all shapes and sizes but there are often excellent opportunities to achieve standardisation of input and reporting. There are also further opportunities to access and report on information from across the Trust. Further information on the payroll and HR for multi academy trusts
