PKF Payroll Services Achieves Business All-Star Accreditation

The Dublin based business has been honoured with a Business All-Star Accreditation from the All-Ireland Business Foundation.

The Accreditation is an outstanding achievement for PKF Payroll Services as it recognises the hard work and dedication of the team in providing a best in class service to its customers.

This is an independently verified standard mark for indigenous businesses, based on rigorous selection criteria. The Accreditation is overseen by the prestigious All-Ireland Business Foundation, whose adjudication panel is chaired by Dr Briga Hynes of the Kemmy Business School at the University of Limerick and Kieran Ring, CEO of the Global Institute of Logistics.

PKF Payroll Services is the Payroll Outsourcing Division of PKF O’Connor, Leddy & Holmes Ltd which was established in 1962. PKF Payroll was established in January 2016 to incorporate the payroll clients of PKFOCLH and to grow the business to become one of Ireland’s leading payroll outsourcing bureaus.

As of today, they have grown the business to 150+ clients ranging in sizes and categories of business. PKF Payroll is headed up by Audrey Curran who brings over 20 years’ experience in payroll outsourcing.

PKF Payroll has a dedicated team of 7 IPASS qualified payroll executives who look after their growing business and who pride themselves on delivering impeccable standards of service and knowledge to their clients. PKF Payroll brings exceptional technical experience, with a hands-on approach that assists their clients to manage in today’s business environment within the age of accelerating change.  

PKF Payroll Services are absolutely delighted and honoured to achieve the Business All-Star Accreditation for the 2nd year in a row. PKF prides itself in assisting clients with the very important task of payroll. 2020-2021 has been a very challenging time for payroll and for the many companies we provide this outsourcing service to. The team here have been extremely focused on providing first class guidance on the changes brought on by Covid schemes and most importantly providing solutions to clients during this period, says Audrey Curran, General Manager at PKF Payroll Services

She adds: “This accolade is extremely important to everyone in PKF as we take great pride in what we do for our customers. As an outsourced payroll bureau we become an integral part of the companies we provide payroll for and continue to work with them to make the process streamlined and efficient. Our priority is to get everyone paid on time every time.”

Kieran Ring, Deputy Chair on the Adjudication Board said in support of the announcement: “This certificate verifies that PKF Payroll Services has achieved AIBF 2021-1014 Business All-Star Accreditation for a second successive year. We wish to recognise PKF Payroll Services’ conduct in the areas of trust, commitment, performance & customer centricity. PKF Payroll Services is hereby included in the AIBF Register Of Irish Business Excellence.”

Dr Hynes said the Accreditation, which is now held by over 450 firms, is needed by the thousands of small and medium businesses which operate to their own standards, but have nothing to measure them by.

“We evaluate a company’s background, trustworthiness and performance, and we speak to customers, employees and vendors. We also anonymously approach the company as a customer and report back on the experience. The business goes through at least two interviews and is scored on every part of the process against set metrics”, she says.

The All-Ireland Business Foundation is a national body which accredits best-in-class Irish businesses as Business All-Stars. The Foundation also oversees the All-Ireland Business Summit while promoting peer dialogue amongst our members on an ongoing basis.
