Rentadesk make the switch to cloud-based payroll

By Matthew Thompson | 2nd October 2013 | 7 min read

Bleddyn Williams set up Rentadesk in 2005 as a way of offering accessible office space to anyone who needed it, all at an affordable price. In the years since, the company has continued to grow, providing a unique working environment to a range of different enterprising individuals.

Bleddyn has already ran his own payroll, using traditional desktop software, but when he heard that his current provider would not be updating their software in time to handle HMRC’s RTI legislation, it was time to start pursuing alternative options.

“I don’t have a background in payroll, and had been using the same software for quite some time, so when I needed to change, I initially asked my accountant for advice. He showed me a number of free software options which I could download, but none of these felt right” Bleddyn commented.

“I prefer to use a Mac if possible, and the majority of the payroll software options I looked at weren’t compatible with Macs.”

When Bleddyn came across IRIS OpenPayroll, straight away the solution seemed to fit his requirements.

IRIS OpenPayroll is based entirely in the cloud, meaning Bleddyn didn’t have to worry about technical issues affecting his work, and could remain confident that all of his payroll data would be regularly backed up and remain secure.

“IRIS OpenPayroll seemed to fit into my business ethos, allowing me to run my payroll from wherever I want, without having to reinstall software on multiple machines.”

"The interface is so simple and easy to understand, I would definitely recommend it to other business owners in my position. I can simply repeat my payroll each month and everything happens automatically. It only takes a few minutes each month and gives me more time to focus on the rest of my business.”
