Irish payroll outsource provider, Paycheck Plus, has opened a branch in Manchester, adding to the company's existing presence in Ireland and the UK.
The new Manchester office will be officially unveiled this evening by Brian Hayes, Minister of State for Public Service Reform and the Office of Public Works as part of a Trade Mission to Manchester taking place this week hosted by Fingal Dublin Chamber and South Dublin Chamber.
The Trade Mission to Manchester is also being attended by the Mayor of Manchester, Cllr. Naeem ul Hassan and representatives from Enterprise Ireland, the Irish Exporters Association, the British Irish Chamber of Commerce and Midas, Manchester's inward investment agency whose role is to attract new investment and employment to the Greater Manchester region.
Established in 2005, Paycheck Plus is expanding its presence in the UK to meet the increasing demand for payroll services for companies who have operations on both sides of the Irish Sea.
The dedicated office in Manchester will complement the activity already conducted by the UK team who process payroll for businesses who have employees working in Northern Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales.
Clients that will benefit from the new Paycheck Plus presence in the UK include Eurolink, Caffe Nero, Ecocem. Phase Eight, Romaqua, BCF Technologies, McKesson, Avvio, Easivo, Grays of Cambridge, Welspun, and Larsen Water Management.
Paycheck Plus, which is based in Dunleer, Co. Louth, currently employs 11 people and plans are in place to expand the team further in the coming months.
Every member of the payroll team is qualified in payroll from the Irish Payroll Association (IPASS) or the Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals in the UK (CIPP). The company utilises secure encryption services and accredited back-up systems and works in state of the art 'clean room' payroll laboratories to protect and ensure confidentiality of critical data.
Brian Hayes TD, Minister of State for Public Service Reform and the Office of Public Works opened the new Paycheck Plus office in Manchester saying: "Companies like Paycheck Plus demonstrate the innovation and determination of Irish entrepreneurs. Anne Reilly and her team have taken on global leaders in this sector and are capturing valuable market share. The Paycheck Plus office in Manchester will help them to reach a larger client base, grow the business and create jobs. It's not enough these days just to be innovative or to deliver excellence in service. In today's marketplace entrepreneurs need to be tenacious, determined and driven to succeed. I see these qualities in Anne Reilly and the Paycheck Plus team and wish them great success as they move further into the UK market."
