More and more companies are seeing the value in outsourcing their payroll function to the GRS group company - Fairfax Yeaman. Outsourcing of Payroll is being driven by a number of factors including freeing up employees time to focus on their core business and to save on costs by avoiding the overheads associated with employing a dedicated in-house payroll specialist.The highly technical and confidential nature of payroll also makes it a prime service to be outsourced as costly mistakes can be made when handling complex remuneration calculations, statutory filings and dealing with legislative changes in Tax and Social Insurance.

GRS are the leading and largest Recruitment and Payroll consultancy in Cyprus with offices in Cyprus (Limassol & Nicosia) and Malta and who have provided Payroll services through group company Fairfax Yeaman to some of the world’s leading companies and organisations operating in Cyprus including: Oracle, Sony, Hewlett Packard, GSK, Barclays Bank, DP World, Adidas, Energy International, GE Capital, Elisabeth Arden, HM Government UK and the EU Commission to name a few that we can mention.
