Free yourself from payroll headaches


Managing payroll is time-consuming, requiring compliance, accuracy, and fool-proof reliability. For employers, outsourcing payroll to an expert team like Champion Accountants saves time, money and stress, and provides a far better experience for employees.

For larger employers, processing a high volume of payslips is a huge undertaking. In smaller businesses, payroll staff are likely to be juggling the challenge alongside innumerable other tasks, and absence in the payroll team can spell disaster.

Compliance is also critical, and anyone responsible for payroll must be prepared for HMRC-led reviews of Pay As You Earn (PAYE) or National Minimum Wage, ready to provide effective pay gap reporting.

Payroll with Champion

With Champion at the helm, powered by world-leading technology, your payroll process will be streamlined. While the stress will be taken out of your hands, employees will have the power to view and understand their payslips and adjust their personal details through our cutting-edge app.

Simple updates like new addresses and change of names can be inputted by employees themselves, saving time across your teams. The payroll self-service portal for employees allows your staff to see and download their own data, helping them to manage their personal finances and improve wellbeing amongst your business.

The portal makes it simple for employers to access payslips and payment documents, view amounts due to HMRC, and run a range of payroll-related reports for all circumstances. With automated payslip distribution, we cut out the middle man, delivering payslips directly to employees’ smartphones.

“We outsource our payroll function to Champion as such a role doesn’t warrant a full-time member of staff, plus we want the peace of mind that this critical role is being handled by an expert with the specialist knowledge and technical capability required. Whether we had 30 staff or 300, outsourcing key parts of your operations makes good business sense, as Champion’s payroll team are always on hand to advise and support as and when required, whether that’s onboarding new staff or changes to existing staff circumstances, which delivers a far more efficient and cost-effective function than employing someone internally.”

Ian Bennett, Finance Director at Artorius


“Champion’s Preston team have supported The Royal British Legion for more than 50 years – long before the practice became part of Champion. They assist with our year-end accounts, attending our annual AGM and presenting to our members to act as a true extension of our charity.”

“Over the years, we have outsourced more critical functions to Champion, with them now handling our payroll. The lady who used to manage our wages left us a number of years ago and outsourcing this to Champion was a no brainer.”

“It’s rare to find an accountant who has a vested interest in what you do and that’s exactly why we’ve remained with Champion. Nothing is too much trouble. They’re just a phone call away and the level of service we’ve received has never wavered throughout all these years.”

Scott Niven, Steward at The Royal British Legion
