Equiniti achieves Payroll Assurance Scheme Accreditation

06 March 2020

The PAS accreditation provides payroll departments with the assurance that their payroll and associated processes are fit for purpose and comply with government legislation. It also ensures that they have the correct payroll activities in place and suitable processes are prepared and agreed to comply with legislative change.

Ken Pullar, Chief Executive Officer of the CIPP, said: “We are thrilled that Equiniti have joined the ranks of organisations to have achieved this respected accreditation. It is imperative that organisations comply with government legislation and the PAS scheme is designed to help them do just that.”

Mervyn McCormick, location director at Equiniti HR Solutions commented that they "are delighted to have been again accredited under the CIPP Payroll Assurance Scheme (PAS) – the “gold standard” in payroll. This evidences the commitment and expertise of our staff in ensuring that in 2019 1.75 million payments at a value of £4.5 billion were made accurately and on time. We were especially pleased with the auditor’s comment "This is very clearly an excellent payroll operation – demonstrated, especially, by the consistently high standards of service provision and customer satisfaction achieved."
