The Payroll Services Summit 2019

Thursday 17th October, London

The challenges faced by payroll teams in a bureau are completely different to those faced by in-house payroll teams. This event, designed specifically for firms running a payroll service, will feature insights from key speakers with a background in the industry.

Why attend?

You'll have the opportunity to hear from some of the leading UK payroll professionals working in payroll services, and understand how they have overcome their own challenges in order to achieve their personal or professional objectives. 

You'll also have the chance to network with other industry professionals and the speakers over post-event drinks. 

Who should attend?

Partners of accounting firms who have responsibility for the outsourced payroll service in their company, and senior Heads of Payroll or Payroll Managers working in a payroll bureau environment. 

Please note: due to limited numbers at the venue and initial demand for this event, we will allocate spaces to ensure that as many firms as possible get the opportunity to attend. Where several delegates register from one organisation we will operate a waiting list and aim to accommodate as many people as possible.
