Business Cornwall: How is the business best described?
We are a local company providing outsourced payroll and auto-enrolment pensions services to businesses across Cornwall. We aim to take away the worry and hassle of these elements!
Being based in Cornwall, we understand the seasonal nature of many businesses here regarding employee numbers fluctuating and tailor our services and fees to meet those needs.
Business Cornwall: Why was the business founded?
To meet the needs of Cornish Businesses’ payroll and workplace pension requirements with the introduction of auto enrolment pensions. Payroll has become far more specialist in recent years and many businesses who had traditionally run payroll in house, have decided to use a payroll provider because of this.
Having worked in Payroll management for both Chartered accountants and in-house for large companies, with the advent of auto enrolment I felt it was the perfect time to do this.
Business Cornwall: How does the business compare to competitors in the industry?
We provide the same payroll service as chartered accountants, however, we don’t really compete with them as we only provide payroll services, so rather work alongside accountants. Also, we actually run the payroll service for several accountants in Cornwall who choose not to provide payroll services themselves.
Business Cornwall: What are the business’s plans both short-term and long-term?
Continuing to grow, but making sure our clients are happy with our service and retaining the personal touch. We are hoping to take on an apprentice in this year and in the long term, more employees as we continue to grow.
Business Cornwall: How does the business define success?
The way we would define success is continued growth, without losing that personal touch.
We have taken the worry and hassle out of payroll and workplace pensions for many businesses in Cornwall, leaving our clients to concentrate on what they do best- running their business! the feedback has been very positive and has been very rewarding in itself.
