Who are Optimum Pay Group?
Optimum Pay Group was founded in response to a gap in the market for a reliable, compliant and simple payroll solution for businesses. Although our main focus has been providing Umbrella solutions to contractors and temporary workers, we also offer CIS, PAYE and Accounting services.
Do you offer global payroll?
Yes! Our global division is rapidly expanding, and we currently operate in over 100 countries worldwide.
Why should I choose Optimum Pay?
We believe payroll should be simple and compliant. We listen to what you need and tailor our solutions to fit around you and/or your business. We don’t cut corners and are always 100% transparent with you whilst ensuring 100% transparency with HMRC regulations.
What are the benefits of outsourcing payroll?
Simply put, our services are there to make your life easier. Whether that’s freeing up more of your time to focus on driving growth for your business or saving you money on software and hiring an in-house team. You can also rely on us to have the latest knowledge on financial and payroll legislation, so you don’t have to.
How do payroll companies work?
That very much depends on on your needs. We discuss your needs and goals so that we can tailor our solutions to meet your needs, whether that’s Umbrella, PAYE, CIS or just advice. We can do anything from taking full control of your payroll, or just providing payslips.
What is an Umbrella Company and how will it work for me?
An umbrella company is the simplest way for contractors to get paid. With our Umbrella services, we work alongside your recruitment agency as their payroll provider and you will become our employee. Your recruitment agency will purely be there to help you find your next assignment.
What happens if I want to leave Optimum Pay?
We’ll always be sad to see you go, but if you find a permanent job or decide Optimum Pay is not for you, just send a written confirmation to email@example.com We will then issue you a P45 that you can show to your new Employer, which shows all the Tax you have paid during your employment with us.
What if my personal details change?
Please advise your recruitment agency and contact our Admin and Payroll team should any of your personal details change such as address, name, bank account.
This below policy sets out Optimum Pay Group’s approach to equality and diversity. We are committed to promoting equality and diversity and promoting a culture that actively values difference and recognises that people from different backgrounds and experiences can bring valuable insights to the workplace and enhance the way we work.
Our aim is to be an inclusive organisation, committed to providing equal opportunities throughout employment including in the recruitment, training and development of employees, and to pro-actively tackling and eliminating discrimination.
Equality and Diversity at Optimum Pay Group
We consider that equality means breaking down barriers, eliminating discrimination and ensuring equal opportunities and access for all groups both in employment, and to goods and services.
We consider diversity to mean celebrating difference and valuing everyone. Each person is an individual with visible and non-visible differences and by respecting this everyone can feel valued for their contributions which is beneficial not only for the individual but for the Company too.
We acknowledge that equality and diversity are not inter-changeable but inter-dependent. There can be no equality of opportunity if difference is not valued and harnessed.
Our commitment to this policy.
Every employee is entitled to a working environment that promotes dignity, equality and respect for all. The Company will not tolerate any acts of unlawful or unfair discrimination (including harassment) committed against an employee, contractor, job applicant or visitor because of a protected characteristic: sex; gender reassignment; marriage and civil partnership; pregnancy and maternity; race (including ethnic origin, colour, nationality and national origin); disability; sexual orientation; religion and or belief; age.
All of our employees are selected based on their aptitude and ability. Where possible, we will capture applicants’ diversity demographics as part of its recruitment processes to promote the elimination of unlawful discrimination.
Our employees undergo training and development activities from time to time, to encourage the promotion of the principles of this policy.
All promotion decisions are made on basis of merit and are not influenced by any of the protected characteristics listed above. Where appropriate, steps will be taken to identify and remove unnecessary or unjustifiable barriers to promotion.
The benefits, terms and conditions of employment and facilities available to Optimum Pay Group employees are reviewed on a regular basis to ensure that access is not restricted by unlawful means and to provide appropriate conditions to meet the special needs of disadvantaged or under-represented groups.
