Key to the range of payroll solutions provided by Dataplan is the service we offered for businesses operating under a franchise arrangement. Our experience within this field is vast and we offer franchised payroll services for major household names, such as Costa Coffee, McDonalds and Subway – to name but a few.

Our fully payroll managed service – and the sending of BACS payments, bespoke reporting and auto-enrolment encompassed within this – is sophisticated and keeps the effort required by you, as the customer, to a minimum. Alternatively, if you require a more minimal service, e.g. simply the provision of ePayslips, then Dataplan will be more than happy to help.

With a depth of payroll experience spanning back to 1968, our reputation in the industry is second to none. Indeed, we have won the Payroll Service Provider of the Year award twice in within a five year period and are one of the fastest growing payroll providers in the UK.

We provide high quality, outsourced payroll solutions to over 1800 UK customers. With Dataplan, you can sleep easy that your employees will be paid on time, every time. This reliability is mirrored by our PQP accreditation, awarded by the CIPP (Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals), as well as our commitment to Continuous Service Improvements
