FC Payroll Solutions has been named Specialist Provider of the Year at the leading industry awards for payroll professionals.

With 38 staff based in Poole, Torquay and Truro, PKF Francis Clark’s commercial payroll bureau handles payrolls for more than 1,200 businesses and organisations across the south west and beyond.

Judges of the Specialist Payroll & HR Provider Award at The Rewards, organised by Rewards Strategy, were impressed by the firm’s work for clients in the care sector.

Recent highlights included transferring 27 new care home payrolls, with 2,500 employees, in just four weeks with no interruption in service. FC Payroll Solutions has also automated processes for 40 payrolls, saving time and resources for care homes.

Sharon Austen, partner at PKF Francis Clark, said: “Care homes have faced many challenges during the pandemic, so it’s pleasing to be recognised for the role our payroll teams have played in enabling them to focus on their vital work.”
