Specialising in Payroll Management Solutions

We specialise in payroll management services, saving many of our clients the significant costs of employing payroll staff. As part of our complete, legally compliant solutions, we will calculate pay, tax and national insurance and provide payslips via email, online portal or traditional means. All associated reports are then submitted electronically, in real-time, to HMRC. Find out more about our flexible and reliable payroll services on our Payroll page.

Stress-Free Management

Also offering a wide array of accounting services, our professional accountants have the knowledge and experience to handle all payroll issues and requirements. This frees you and your staff up to concentrate on what you do best, without the stress and hassle of keeping up with legal changes.

It might also be helpful for you to know that, of all the payroll clients we have ever taken on, every single one of them remains with us to this day. In other words, we have NEVER had a payroll client change their mind or move their business to another firm.

We believe the quality of our services speaks for itself, and our customers consider our services essential to their business. All you need to do is send us your payroll data, and we will do the rest. What’s more, we’re available on the end of a phone at any time.

Risks of In-House Management

Unfortunately, there are numerous risks and costs associated with managing payroll in-house, which can leave your business vulnerable. These include:

Risks and costs of in-house management

  • Lack of continuity, due to staff absence/changeover

  • Risk of falling foul of legal requirements and constant pressure to keep up to date

  • Over dependence on key members of staff

  • Cost of staff training

  • Cost of software licences

  • Tying up of staff time on non-core business issues

  • Data security problems

  • Conflicts of interest

Flexible and Responsive

Taking all the overheads, responsibility, and other headaches away, we provide a reliable, tailored payroll service to meet individual needs. Whether you decide to opt for a flat-rate fee or a cost per payslip, there will never be any additional charges.

As experienced accountants, we understand the role that payroll plays in your overall accounts. We offer integrated auto-enrolment and can produce journals and bank payment files as required.

What’s more, you’ll save on software licencing and stationery costs, while also having the peace of mind that all our services are fully compliant with current regulations, including GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations). This leaves you free to concentrate on growing your business.

Benefits of Outsourcing

Master Accounting Managing Director Mark Buckmaster says: “When we take on a new payroll client, they often see it as a major breakthrough when they realise just how much we can take the weight off their shoulders.

‘I think what our customers love is how responsive we are to their needs. If they have a question, there is no need to issue a ticket and wait for a response, or any of that sort of nonsense. We are extremely flexible and available at all times, and they can rest assured that their payroll is in safe hands and always our absolute priority.”

What Our Clients Say

Read All Reviews

“It is a pleasure to work with Mark and Rachel at Master Accounting. The service we receive from them is first class. They are expeditious and accurate with our payroll requirements and also able to respond with expert knowledge to our queries and ad hoc requests.”

Lee Lovett

Finance Manager, Cerelia UK Ltd (Trading as Bakeaway, Corby)


"’I have now worked closely with Mark Buckmaster/Master Accounting providing payroll services in two separate companies. I have found him to be extremely helpful, flexible, and reliable. He has all the requisite knowledge but does not make the whole exercise of processing payroll a purely technical exercise and is very adaptable when the situation demands. Certainly, we have found him to be very good value for the service he provides.”

David Roe

Finance Director, Redwood Global Ltd


“I have known and worked with Mark Buckmaster for 10 years across 4 different companies. I have engaged him on payroll in each of those companies, which in itself speaks volumes about the value, competence and accuracy of what Mark does. He has done payrolls for me ranging from less than 100 staff to over 200 with his attention to detail and, above all, accuracy exemplary.

His responsiveness to my demanding queries – faultless in their speed and clarity of reply – and his pricing also make him hugely competitive against anyone else I could use. He also customises our payslips and gives me whatever output I request to suit my business and accounting integration needs.

Furthermore, he often goes beyond what I expect by helping specific employees with their personal tax issues with the HMRC if perhaps they have got in arrears or have issues over car benefits or other non-standard issues. I use Mark and his payroll services repeatedly because I know it solves my need to get payroll done with minimal fuss, on time and accurately, with all the Year-End returns also thrown in to make the complete annual, monthly, and weekly solution.”
