7 Essential Certificates for Exceptional Payroll Services
In this article our expert payroll processors count down the seven certificates that underpin our award-winning payroll services.
7 – ISAE 3402
The ISAE 3402 standard requires Paycheck Plus to comply with ethical requirements as well as plan and perform our procedures in a suitably designed and effective manner. To maintain this accreditation we routinely undertake comprehensive reviews of our payroll processes which in turn verify our ability to operate in accordance with our Service Level Agreements.
As part of our ISAE 3402 accreditation process we undertake independent assessments of our payroll processing, quality assurance, physical security and information security control activities. These provide assurances that our premises and information systems are protected from unauthorised access while verifying that adequate controls are present throughout the payroll process to ensure the accuracy and quality of our payroll services.
6 – CIPP
Our UK team is trained to Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals’ (CIPP) standards. Having fully trained payroll processors enables our payroll bureau to ensure that we remain compliant with the ever-increasing volume of UK payroll and pension regulations.
These accreditations enable our processors to efficiently and accurately handle the variety of issues encountered when processing payrolls which allows us to provide our UK clients with a complete and comprehensive range of UK payroll services.
5 – ISO 9001
Our ISO 9001 Quality Management Standard details our payroll services’ standard operational practices. It is the world’s foremost quality management standard. It consists of all of our payroll service’s company policies, procedures and associated records. It ensures that our payroll services are assessed against our clients’ requirements and external standards. It is meticulous work, but it is vital to ensuring we deliver the best payroll services Ireland has to offer.
4 – IPASS
When we employ team members – no matter how experienced they may be – we invest in training them to Irish Payroll Association (IPASS) standards. IPASS qualifications are the nationally recognised qualification for Irish payroll processing. By insisting on these accreditations we know that our employees have a full understanding of best-practice payroll and are capable of meeting, and succeeding, our clients’ needs
3 – ISO 27001
The Information Security Standard, ISO 27001, details all of our payroll bureau’s security arrangements. It is a means of assessing the level of information security compliance at Paycheck Plus. For payroll companies such as ours, security of payroll data is paramount. The ISO 27001 certificate helps reassure clients that our payroll service has the control measures in place to verify our compliance.
2 – ISO 27701
ISO 27701 Security Techniques is a privacy accreditation, that relates specifically to the management of personal data processing risks. It requires the implementation of a robust and comprehensive Privacy Information Management System (PIMS). ISO 27701 enables us to meet the privacy and information security requirements of the GDPR and other data protection regulations. It demonstrates that we have the appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect the personal data we process and uphold data subjects’ rights, in line with the Regulation’s accountability principle (Article 5(2)).
At Paycheck Plus we are known for going one step further than the competition, and our ISO 27701 certificate is just one example of this. As Ireland’s First ISO 27701 Accredited payroll provider we are the most secure payroll bureau in the country and set the standard for other payroll services to follow.
1 – Great Places to Work
At Paycheck Plus we are extremely proud of our Great Places to Work certification. We know that our staff are our greatest asset. Our success is based on a team effort and every team member plays an important role in ensuring the successful delivery of services to our clients.
At Paycheck Plus we believe that if we take care of our employees, they’ll take care of our business. And so we have actively worked towards developing an employee-centric culture. The Great Places To Work certification underscores our commitment to employee development and to building a pleasant and supportive workplace environment.
