"We're really happy with Pento, because it's so easy to use and constantly improving. I used to spend 5-10% of my time running payroll. Now I can get it all done in minutes, and it's a much better experience for everyone in the company. The quick chat support is a huge time-saver as well."

How does Pento compare to an outsourced payroll provider/agency?

Pento is the first fully automated UK payroll solution. This means that you can easily run payroll internally and not spend much time on it. You can see the comparison and your savings here.

Are you HMRC and pension auto-enrolment compliant?

Yes. We work closely with HMRC and various pensions providers and integrate directly into their systems. This enables us to submit reports and payments directly and automatically.

How hard is it to switch to Pento?

It's very easy. When you're ready to switch to Pento you just submit to us your latest spreadsheet with your employee payroll and pension data. Then we do everything else for you and within a day or two you get access to Pento with all your employee and company data ready for you to use. You can read more about it here.

I’m not a payroll expert. Can I use Pento?

Yes, absolutely. That's exactly why we built Pento. We felt this problem ourselves and thought there must be a simpler, software-enabled way to run payroll. Now, hundreds of customers are already running payroll internally without much prior knowledge on payroll. You can see how easy Pento is to use here.

Can I see Pento in action?

Sure. You can see how Pento payroll process works in our quick 5 minute video walkthrough.

How much does Pento cost? 

Pento starts at just £8 / month. The pricing depends on the size of your company and special needs. Please sign up and we'll be able to help you assess your payroll process and appropriate pricing plan.

How about security and privacy? 

Our teams worked hard to ensure both 100% GDPR data compliance and security within the product. All our web traffic goes through TLS/SSL only with HSTS and perfect forward secrecy fully enabled. Pento is graded as a "B" rating on SSL Labs' tests. We also continuously use third party penetration testing security tools and teams to continuously scan for vulnerabilities in our product.
