Payroll software from Sage automates key processes to help you run an efficient business

Get affordable, HMRC-recognised cloud-based payroll software. It's ideal for small UK businesses, charities, retail stores, and nonprofits.

Payroll management solutions for UK businesses

Every successful company relies on talented staff members. Having a reliable payroll system will help maintain employee trust and confidence. Manual payroll processes and systems are time consuming and it's easy to make a mistake.

Whether you’re a small business, a charity or a nonprofit, Sage payroll services can help. Our cloud-based software streamlines and automates payroll processes like payslips and tax calculations. You’ll never need to worry about payslip errors impacting employee relationships.

UK businesses are required to provide a workplace pension scheme to eligible members of staff and ensuring you are fulfilling your obligations as an employer can be tough. With Sage payroll software, auto-enrolment functionality means you can save valuable time and effort. Regardless of your business size, we’ve made it easy to ensure compliance, manage people joining the pension scheme as well as provide the required payments and data.
