Fourth Payroll Product

The Problem
Standard payroll companies struggle with the complexity of the hospitality sector. Transient, seasonal, part-time and full-time workers that are paid hourly, weekly or monthly means that errors and overpayments are common.

The Solution
Our HMRC-accredited cloud-based payroll service is a fully integrated part of our Workforce Planning solution. This means a single record for each employee across HR, scheduling and payroll. Customisable timesheets, importing capabilities and self-service for employees and managers reduces everyone's administrative burden. And its integration with BACS and finance systems provides ease of payment and serves multiple PAYE companies.

The Fourth Payroll Bureau Service

The Problem
Payroll is complex and labour intensive and the frequency of pay periods and multitude of employment types are fertile breeding ground for errors. Rectifying payroll issues is not just difficult, it can also be damaging to employee relations.

Our Solution
When you outsource your payroll to us, it's in great hands. Our CIPP-qualified Payroll Specialists have a deep understanding of hospitality payroll, and they are available on demand. As a customer, you are assigned your own Payroll Specialist, who really knows your business' unique challenges. You get perfect payroll, reducing or eliminating the need for in-house payroll - and it's all fully HMRC compliant.

Pensions

The Problem
The hospitality workforce is particularly affected by the complex UK Pension Reform. With its highly flexible and seasonal nature and the complexity of calculating the qualifying earnings each pay period, calculating pensions quickly becomes onerous.

Our Solution
Our CIPP award-winning auto-enrolment service is a fully integrated part of our payroll management solution. It streamlines and automates the checks and calculations required each pay period - and produces quick, accurate numbers, eliminating any errors from data duplication. The result: your pension process is completely compliant each pay period - and the burden on employees is significantly reduced.

The Fourth Auto Enrolment Service

The Problem
Compliance with the UK Pension Reform's auto enrolment scheme is both mandatory and complex due to the frequency of pay periods and multitude of employment types. Manually calculating qualifying earnings each pay period for automatic enrolment takes a great deal of time and non-compliance is costly.

Our Solution
When you outsource to us, our Pension Specialists manage the auto enrolment admin process for you. Every payroll, a dedicated Legislation Expert reconciles all pension contributions against payroll and pension providers' reports. They manage employee opt-ins and joiners, opt-outs and contribution refunds, and employee transfers between schemes. And each month, you receive reconciliations giving totals of amounts to pay to each provider.

Expenses

The Problem
Managing expenses is time-consuming and complex. Employees spend hours on long lists of claims. Administrators must then categorise the claims correctly for VAT, manage mileage schemes, and ensure expenses are approved and paid on time.

Our Solution
Fourth’s fully integrated expense solution allows the user to log their expenses as they happen. Each expense type is categorised automatically for VAT purposes. Complex mileage schemes can be set up with workflow management for quick and accurate authorisation.
