Few know recruitment or software like we do.

Merit Payroll is a comprehensive system designed specifically to meet the payroll and invoicing needs of the recruitment industry. Paying temporary staff is often more complex than paying full-time employees, as hours can vary from week to week and the submission and approval of timesheets can sometimes be delayed.

Merit Payroll achieves its overarching goal to make life easier for those responsible for managing the process of paying temporary workers and contractors.

Trusted by hundreds of UK-based recruitment agencies, over two million workers are paid through Merit every single week.
