"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. Forget all about constant spreadsheets and back and forth emails with an external payroll provider. Now you can run the whole payroll with instant calculations and adjustments - it takes just a few minutes a month. Learn more.

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.

Is switching to Pento going to be a headache?

No. 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.

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.

Can I see Pento in action?

Sure. You can see how Pento payroll process works in this quick video below.

How much does Pento cost? 

Pento Basic starts from £8 / month per employee. And that's it. There are no setup cost or hidden fees. You can see more about our prices here.
