While our engagements vary, the core problems we tackle remain the same.  Typically our clients have a 'feeling' there are issues of compliance, governance or knowledge gaps in their payroll.  We use our 7 step methodology to uncover the exact cause of the problems and provide recommendations and solutions.

What is the Seven Step Payroll Productivity Methodology?


Our Packages

ASSESS - Payroll Productivity Assessment

We use our payroll productivity and payroll benchmarking tools to give you an understanding of your payroll efficiency and effectiveness and provide recommendation for improvement.

IMPLEMENT - Payroll Optimisation

This package includes an end to end payroll process review, a skills gap analysis of your team, assessment of payroll governance and best practice payroll processing, risk assessment and payroll continuity assessment.  It also includes a payroll benchmarking report on your payroll operation and recommendations for improvement.

DELIVER - Payroll Best Practice Delivery

An end to end assessment of your payroll operation and delivery of payroll best practice.  This includes remediation where necessary around payroll governance, risk mitigation, payroll continuity and a full payroll benchmarking report.  Rather than providing recommendations, your APA consultant will deliver you a best practice payroll operation.
