What our users are saying

“Paycircle is the only solution available that directly talks with NEST. Since we are using NEST for our auto enrolment pension, this feature meant I wasn’t going to have to manually input the pensions details into the NEST portal every month.”

“I used Sage for a number of years and, while I wasn’t exactly smitten by it, could never see myself using anything else. And then I heard about Paycircle. Now payroll isn’t just cheaper but – as unbelievable as it sounds – rather enjoyable, too.”

“Even the thought of auto-enrolment filled me with a profound existential despair, so I feared actually doing it might send me into yet another depressive episode. In the event, and what, with hindsight, I consider an act of God, I stumbled across Paycircle.”

“Admin is my least favourite thing. In fact I’d go so far as to say I hate it. I had never run my own payroll, the thought had never even crossed my mind. Now I run my own payroll from the farm on my mobile phone each month. I don't stress about it at all.”
