HR & payroll

Reliable, scalable and integrated solutions that reduce cost and improve efficiency.

A global workforce presents challenges that require expert HR knowledge and specialised processes. Payroll legislation is a highly complex area. With rules and policies so often in flux, processing payroll in-house is often costly and inefficient. Our specialist team offers a flexible way of managing your HR and payroll requirements either locally or across the world.  

Our approach   

Outsourcing your HR and payroll functions can improve accuracy, efficiency and security. With differing rules and regulations in each jurisdiction, it can be challenging to manage these functions internationally. Partnering with us lets you to draw on world-leading expertise in finance and HR. Our experienced professionals work closely with our clients to simplify processes and improve performance in individual ways suited to their specific circumstances.  

At Mazars, services are designed to meet the requirements of companies that are seeking a consistent and reliable service that is scalable and flexible. We recognise that the modern workforce has myriad HR needs and, above all, wants to know that they will be paid on time and accurately. Using the latest technology and platforms, we help in the delivery of streamlined and automated payroll and HR processes.
