An increasing number of businesses are now seeing the benefits of outsourcing their payroll function, leaving key staff free to focus on other more productive duties within the company.


This was certainly the case with Halesowen-based property investment and development company A&J Mucklow Group plc.


The Company’s payroll was previously dealt with in house but around five years ago, the company decided it would make sense to outsource this function.


Company accountant Gemma Lane said: “We are a relatively small company so we felt it would be more efficient and cost-effective to outsource our payroll to Nicklin.


“We have a very good relationship with Nicklin, particularly Larraine Berry and Jane Hewins in the payroll department. They are able to advise us accordingly when we have raised queries relating to changes in legislation.


“We are very happy with the service we receive from Nicklin. Everything is hassle-free and I would definitely recommend them to anyone else looking to outsource their payroll.”

Gemma Lane, A&J Mucklow Group plc

“Exemplary” is how David Fellows, operations manager at Kingswinford-based Ripley Europe Ltd, describes the payroll services his company receives from Nicklin LLP.


Ripley began using Nicklin’s payroll services in 2011 after its American parent company, which took over what had previously been Abeco Engineering Ltd in 2000, felt it would be beneficial to outsource this important function. At the same time, the company’s own in-house accountant was about to retire.


David had no hesitation in choosing Nicklin, as the firm had already been looking after Ripley’s end-of-year audit for nearly a decade, on the strength of a recommendation.


“We were already very satisfied with the service we were receiving from Nicklin in others areas,” says David, “so it was logical for them to look after our payroll function too.”


Nearly three years later and David has no regrets about this decision, saying: “They have been extremely efficient and helpful. Support from their knowledgeable staff regarding any queries or advice is excellent and we are always kept up to date with any regulatory changes.


“I consider this to be a very cost-effective way of contracting out what can be a complex and time-consuming function and fully intend to continue using their services.


“I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone else.”David Fellows, Ripley Europe Ltd
