Payroll for schools

Schools and other educational institutions have particular requirements when it comes to payroll and most bureau don’t have the expertise to deliver schools payroll.
At BH Payroll Bureau we have built up a significant amount of expertise in this area through recruitment of school payroll specialists and through on-the-job training.
Our school clients are now recognising us as a more dependable, flexible, and friendly provider than they had been used to.
