What Makes us Different?

We are pensions and payroll experts. It’s what we do. With an average of over 20 years’ experience in the industry, our team are unashamedly passionate about all things pensions and payroll – so you don’t have to be!

Our Leeds based team aren’t just data processors. Unlike traditional managed payroll providers, WPD was founded to help organisations with auto-enrolment and pensions administration. Our team of experts have industry leading knowledge and can share best practice and advice on how businesses can best make use of pensions schemes and reduce their tax and NIC liability.

This means not only do we cost-effectively manage all aspects of your payroll and pensions administration as standard, but we can also potentially make choosing WPD cost-neutral.

We understand that there is no one-size-fits-all process in payroll, so each of our clients receive a bespoke onboarding and ongoing support, tailored to you and your business.

Once on board, we don’t charge extras for support – whether supporting your payroll, HR, admin team or your employees. Last minute changes? That’s fine. Lots of new starters or leavers? No problem. New pension scheme or benefits changes? It’s what we’re here for.

Our mission is to save businesses hundreds of hours per year by automating and managing their entire payroll processing, whilst ensuring complete compliance with all current legislation.
