It’s National Payroll Week and what better way to celebrate, than to let you know about our very own Payroll offering ‘WPB’, here at Whitings LLP!


What is WPB?

Whitings Payroll Bureau (WPB) is a long-established payroll arm of Whitings LLP based at the Whitings offices in Bury St Edmunds, Ely, Mildenhall and St Neots with advisors covering the local area from Kings Lynn in the north, to Bury St Edmunds in the south and stretching as far as St Neots to the west. In recent years the WPB has seen an expansion countrywide & now boasts several global concerns amongst its clientele. Initially established to deal with payrolls for existing clients only, a number of these newer businesses have engaged Whitings WPB to act for them on a payroll only basis which we are more than happy to accommodate.


What do we offer?

The WPB uses award winning BrightPay software where access to cloud-based reporting comes as standard. Each client has an appointed account manager enabling a designated point of contact and the establishment of good working relationships. Knowing what you, the client, wants, when you want it & how it is delivered is key to successful payroll processing in a rapidly changing & increasingly complex area.


At WPB we believe in offering a service best suited to the needs of the individual client, so whether you just want a payroll processing service, or you want us to process your staff payments (either by BACS or faster payments via Modulr), pension uploads and PAYE returns, we can help.


All of our payroll operatives are fully qualified & work solely on payroll related business.  This enables the department to not only develop a complete working knowledge of current legislative & regulatory requirements, but also allows for forward planning when new rules and regulations are introduced or announced.


Our twice-yearly payroll newsletter & frequent blog posts highlight areas of concern we think our clients need to be aware of and the payroll team are always ready to help with any queries you may have regardless of whether you are actually a client or not.



For more information about our EPB and the services we offer, please do get in touch with your local Whitings office.
