Payment frequency and types

Process payments weekly, fortnightly, monthly, and annually for all payment types including PAYE, umbrella, self-employed, CIS, and LTD.

Suitable for companies of all sizes

Our typical bureau client usually pays between 50 and 1,000 workers per week. However, Codapay can process an unlimited number of workers in just seconds.

True cloud technology

Codapay is developed on the cloud. This means automatic updates, no IT maintenance requirements, and the ability to work on the move.

Software for payroll bureaus and accountants

Our HMRC recognised payroll bureau software is designed to meet the unique demands of running payroll for multiple companies.

Built with scale in mind, our bureau solution is the ideal choice for any company running payroll for other businesses, including:

  • Accountants and bookkeepers
  • Payroll Process Outsourcing (PPO)
  • Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO)
  • Umbrella companies offering PAYE for agencies
  • Companies responsible for subsidiary company payrolls e.g. healthcare

Although our off-the-shelf product usually ticks all the boxes, we also offer a bespoke service to finetune the solution to your business needs.

At Codapay, we believe payroll doesn’t have to be painful – combining time-saving technology with excellent customer service.
