About National Payroll Week

Taking place on the 7 - 11 September, National Payroll Week was established to raise the profile and awareness of payroll in the UK.

It helps demonstrate the impact the payroll industry has in the UK through the collection of income tax and National Insurance; which is expected to contribute in the region of £325.7bn* to the UK economy in 2020/21.

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.
