Run a business in the Construction Industry?

Here at Talk Staff, we work with a range of payroll clients within the construction industry, therefore we know how complex payroll can get for you. This only gets more complicated when it comes to the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS), and the effect of this on payroll. So whether you’re a union contractor, commercial contractor, government contractor, owner or member of the office staff we’re here to help make complex construction payroll simple.

We understand the Construction Industry

We understand that you work in an industry that is characterised by tight deadlines and efficiency, whether that’s paying suppliers or subcontractors, therefore we stride to provide a fast turnaround on all payroll processing. No business can afford to lose time through inefficient processes, so trust that Talk Staff payroll will process your Payroll on time, every time.

Another factor adding to the complexity of payroll within the construction industry is the diversity within working hours, and contracts for your employees. Calculating the correct pay for full and part time workers can be time consuming enough, without having to consider temporary and casual staff, each with varying shift patterns and working hours. Our construction centred payroll is also capable of handling multiple jobs, trades and unions. Here at Talk Staff, we understand the sheer complexity of this as Payroll experts, let alone for those who have less experience. We commit ourselves to processing payroll accurately, using the best processes for the construction industry, to ensure that your payroll is correct for all your employees. Not only this, we fully adhere to your individual pay schedule and time and attendance systems, so that we work in line with the business and finance structure you have in place.

We know that within the construction industry, labour turnover is generally high, whether this is due to seasonal factors or fluctuations in your demand. We’ve created a construction payroll process that is fully flexible and scalable around your construction workers, to best work towards your business needs. Recruiting workers and putting them on the payroll has never been more simple; we manage the whole process for you so that you don’t have to worry about them not being paid for the hours they have worked. If you currently hire any apprentices, or plan to do so, we can play a helping hand in that too. We regularly monitor how much you should be paying your apprentices, in line with government legislation and labour rates, and let you know when they are entitled to a higher wage. Not sure if your organisation is affected by the apprenticeship levy? We’re happy to talk to you about that too.

Payroll for Union Contractors

If union payroll is part of your company, we factor that into our payroll system too. We understand that some of the unions you work with will require detailed reporting, therefore we made sure to work our Payroll processes around this. However, we know it’s not unusual for you to be a part of multiple unions, and keeping up with these complex reporting requirements can be confusing. At Talk Staff, we use a payroll process that handles all these requirements smoothly and efficiently, no matter how complex – so you don’t have to worry.

Adhering to HMRC Regulations

Regardless of what industry you operate in, having payroll that fully adheres to legislation is crucial, and if you fail to, your organisation may face some hefty penalties. At Talk Staff Payroll, we pride ourselves on using fully HMRC compliant processes, that are in line with the latest up-to-date legislation; which can be difficult to keep up with when processing payroll in-house. We make sure that your construction company is fully compliant, and has employees that are the paying the correct taxes and social insurances

I have always found the staff to be helpful and knowledgeable. The weekly payroll is turned around very quickly; which fits in perfectly with the timescales that we have for our weekly paid staff.
