Professional services

“We have always had gold star service from RSM, at all levels. The service is always prompt and accurate and our account manager is extremely knowledgeable. No demand is too high, and the service is great value for money! We’d recommend RSM to any firm looking for managed payroll services.”

Lowri Williams, HR Officer, Lewis Silkin LLP

Not for profit

“RSM have always provided the highest quality payroll service. Fundamentally we know that, even with the complexity of certain aspects of our payroll, they fully understand our requirements and will process this correctly. Additionally the customer service they provide is second to none, allowing a fully collaborative approach (based on trust) to process payroll each month.” 

Alex Taylor, HR Manager, Crisis

Financial services

“Our partnership with RSM goes back several years and we’ve always found them to be rapidly efficient and proactive with their support. It was important for us for us to work with a company that shares our passion for delivering great customer service, while offering reliable help and support.”

Payday heroes

When an IT outage deleted a client’s payroll data, we rebuilt our client’s payroll from scratch, within weeks. This time-critical support made sure that all 700 employees were paid on time – and it’s just one example of how we can help our clients.

Making payday painless is what we do. We combine in-depth payroll knowledge and modern systems with legal and tax expertise from our wider People Advisory team to take a high-level overview of your payroll. We’ll proactively suggest improvements and efficiencies, and work with you to create the perfect payroll solution for your business.
