About Moorepay

Laura, Mark, Heather in a meeting

The market leader making payroll & HR easy for UK businesses.

We’ve been helping businesses the length and breadth of the country pay their people since 1966. Since then we’ve changed a lot, both in how we look and what we do, and processed over 6,000,000,000 payrolls in the meantime.

We’ve added new software and services (we’re now managing over 150,000 HR engagements a year) and constantly look to innovate our solutions for new and existing customers.

Today, we have more than 10,000 customers who rely on us to help them make their payroll & HR easy, and over 500 industry-qualified staff with over 7,000 years’ collective experience for them to call on.

We’re also part of Zellis, a global leader in tackling the HR challenges of business and government in the 21st century.
