School payroll, academy payroll or education payroll in general has become increasingly complex and with a constant change in legislation and government policy.
Once, solely the preserve of the LEA, payroll expertise on school issues is now more widely available.
But let’s be honest, the concept of outsourcing payroll is nothing new for schools. In fact by contracting out to an LEA, schools are in effect already outsourcing their payroll, and in some cases their LEA may themselves be subcontracting.
For years the LEA’s have had schools as ‘hostage customers’ but now with more and more schools having full budget share, and the increase in Academies schools can make an alternative choice for their payroll. A choice that will give them more control over one of the most important and sensitive parts of running a school...paying its staff.
