About National Payroll Week 2018
Taking place on the 3-7 September, National Payroll Week was established to raise the profile and awareness of payroll in the UK. It helps demonstrate the impact payroll has on the UK economy through contributing towards the £4.46bn* collected through income tax and National Insurance.
It aims to provide payroll professionals with a celebration week to highlight that they do more than just push a button and can benefit organisations through strategic decision making related to overall reward and remuneration.
Payroll is the largest expenditure in most UK organisations and therefore should be managed by qualified professionals. Payroll can save employees money through salary sacrifice and other arrangements which improves employee motivation and morale.
* based on income tax and national insurance contributions.
