About

Opening our doors in 2008, Apex was created with the aim of providing an approachable, reliable and cost-effective alternative to the more traditional payroll companies. Since then, we’ve become the partner of choice for thousands of contractors throughout the country, minimising administration and stress whilst maximising their earnings.

Our Services

What we do

As an Umbrella company, we work hard to ensure that you take home as much of your hard-earned wages as possible.

We aim to reduce the amount of legwork that you as a contractor have to do by supporting you through our registration process and taking over the invoicing and processing of your payment.

We make all relevant deductions and send this across to HMRC so you don’t have to worry about a thing. In doing so, we guarantee that the money which hits your account is yours to take home.

Umbrella

Umbrella is our traditional and fully compliant pay model. Designed to be simple and easy to use, Umbrella suits most contractors who are subject to supervision, direction or control (SDC).

Motion

Motion is our PAYE model that allows contractors to maximise their income by providing tax relief on business-related expenses. This pay model is designed for contractors who are not subject to supervision, direction or control (SDC).

Self-Employed

Contractors registered with the HMRC’s Construction Industry Scheme are eligible for our CIS pay model. This provides the freedom of self-employment whilst reducing the administrative aspect self-employed contractors face.

Our Values

What we stand for

A genuinely ethical business, we consider ‘doing the right thing’ far more important than our bottom line.

The following eight words help define Apex, influencing our decisions and making us the payroll company of choice for so many contractors and agencies.

Honest

We expect honesty from our contractors, and our contractors can demand the same from us. That’s why you won’t find any hidden costs here at Apex. We’ll be up front with you from the very beginning so you’ll know exactly what to expect.

Reliable

We know that your wages are important to you and your family. By providing a genuinely reliable payroll service, we guarantee that you’ll be paid accurately, on time and with the minimum of fuss, safe in the knowledge that your payments are in safe hands.

Supportive

The world of contracting can be confusing with a helping hand often proving useful. We provide support to our contractors from registration all the way through to payment. If you have any queries or issues, our Client Liaison Officers are on hand to help.

Professional

We take pride in the professionalism and expertise of our staff, committed to exceeding your expectations at every stage. So, whether you’re a contractor or an agency, from the moment you first make contact we’ll go above and beyond to deliver the service you deserve.

Compliance

Compliance is an important part of the payroll industry and is absolutely key in our approach to processing your payments. Every contractor who registers with Apex has to pass strict compliance checks before any payments can be processed.

Flexible

Many people choose contracting due to its flexibility. Here at Apex, we strive to ensure that this flexibility is maintained. You can choose how often you would like to be paid and even the payment route if more than one is applicable to you.

Respectful

The relationships we build with our contractors are mutually respectful. We understand that a close and positive working relationship can reduce stress and improve communication, an absolute must when dealing with something as important as payroll.

Motivated

Staffed entirely with time-served payroll specialists, we genuinely love what we do and take the time to get to know you, your ambitions and your challenges. Put simply, we’re motivated by keeping you happy.

Why Apex

What makes us different

We’re committed to offering the very best service possible

We support our contractors from the very beginning of the process, guiding you through registration and chasing your pay from the agency. Our Client Liaison Officers are on hand to go through any queries you may have and work hard to resolve any issues that may arise.

We adhere to the highest standards of compliance

Every contractor we pay has to go through our compliance process during registration to ensure they can be paid. This makes sure that 100% of our contractors are 100% compliant.

We guarantee to pay our workers correctly and on time

You work hard and deserve to be paid correctly, on time and with the minimum of fuss. At Apex, we’re dedicated to making sure that happens without fail, each and every week.

We keep it simple, to the point and transparent

We don’t believe that you should have to deal with hidden extra costs or legislation that you weren’t expecting, which is why we are clear upon registration what we charge and what is expected of you.

We promise to respect the confidentiality of our workers

We always ask security questions before we’ll engage with you. If you don’t pass these questions, we won’t give any information out. This helps reduce fraud, safeguarding your information in the process.
