Low Cost Payroll for Small Businesses

STARTpay: The Low Cost Small Business Payroll Solution


It is a fact that payroll is increasingly becoming more complicated, costly and time consuming and the burden on small businesses of complying with legislation such as auto-enrolment and GDPR is growing.

For the majority of small businesses employing a payroll specialist, even on a part time basis, isn’t an option.  Ensuring staff get paid correctly and on time therefore falls to the owner of the business who often doesn’t have the time or expertise to manage it properly.


Using a specialist provider like Qtac can be a very cost effective and stress free way to reduce the pressure.  STARTpay is designed specifically for smaller businesses giving them a low cost payroll solution that doesn’t compromise on service.

Taking on your first Employee?


As a small business making the decision to take on your first employee can often seem a daunting prospect. Decision made, there are lots of things to consider and additional administration that the business has to complete.

For many business owners one of the biggest areas of concern is taking on the responsibility of ensuring their new staff member gets paid correctly and on time.


Calculating and deducting the right amount of tax, meeting processing deadlines, keeping up to date with payroll legislation including auto enrolment pensions and liaising with HMRC all take time and detract from the running of your business.

Outsourcing your payroll to a specialist provider such as Qtac can alleviate all of the burden and costs much less than you think.
