Payroll Services for Churches

Church Payrolls generally deal with paying the various people employed by Churches and PCCs including organists, parish assistants, parish administrators, and vergers/sextons etc.

The services which we offer are as follows:-

  • Calculation of gross pay as required
  • Calculation of deductions for PAYE, National Insurance etc.
  • Preparation of sealed paper or electronic payslips
  • Provision of itemised reports showing the payments for each individual and the relevant deductions etc.
  • Payment via BACS directly from the church bank account into the employees bank account which avoids the need for payment by cheque or credit transfer (if required).
  • Advice and guidance on all aspects of payroll including payments to HMRC, holiday entitlement, Minimum Wage, Living Wage, and pension obligations.
  • Full Auto Enrolment service including advice on provider, calculation of deductions, and direct liaison with pension providers as necessary.

If you would be interested in finding out more about our services please contact Allan Jones, our Payroll Manager on 0151 348 8400 or email churches@moco.co.uk who will be happy to discuss your requirements and provide you with a quote entirely without obligation.

Continued Relationship

We first approached Morris & Co as a result of meeting their representatives at a DHGS Conference. We had not experienced any significant problems with the firm that we were using, but did recognise that an accountancy firm that specialised in dealing with Franchisees and therefore, understood their specific needs should be of greater benefit to us. Although there is significant distance between our office in Worcester and the Wirral, this has not presented any problems. We look forward to a continued relationship with Morris & Co.

I am delighted with the service I have received from Morris & Co. As BFA Affiliate’s I have confidence in their level of knowledge and expertise. As a result I am free to concentrate on building my business with their help and advice

Professional and thorough

At first I was somewhat reluctant….I have been able to establish a mutual trust and experienced a professional and thorough service

Kevin Morrissey, Sheffield

Very professional

Morris & Co have been supporting my business with payroll, pensions & accountancy for 7 years and everyone we've ever dealt with has been very professional and incredibly helpful. I wasted a year using a local accountant and I heartily regret it. Moco are extremely quick to respond to all queries, and they don't even mind the really stupid ones I ask them from time to time! I don't expect my accountant to reply to my emails at 9pm, but Moco often do.
