activpayroll opens Manchester office

activpayroll, the global payroll and tax compliance specialist headquartered in Aberdeen, has announced the launch of its first English office in the city of Manchester.

The firm said the latest opening will be a significant addition to the firm’s current global offering which already boasts nine offices in the EMEA region, alongside three others in the APAC and Americas region.

The office has initially been established to provide enhanced support to new and existing UK domestic and international customers.

activpayroll has been delivering its payroll and multiple other class leading services to customers both in the UK and internationally for almost 20 years. Manchester is now one of the UK’s fastest growing cities and has become an incredibly popular location for global organisations to launch corporate offices.

In addition to its payroll services, activpayroll’s Manchester office will also offer customers specialist Global Mobility and Global HR support.

Euan Sellar, chief operating officer of activpayroll, said: “I am delighted to finally share the news of our latest entity. Having a presence in the North of England is strategically important to us as we continue our global expansion journey. After spending some time evaluating several options, Manchester was the clear winner, ticking all the right boxes for us. The city is best placed to allow us to grow our customer base in England, and will allow us to provide greater specialist support to our customers based in both the UK and Europe.”

Nick Southwell, chief financial officer, added: “This is a brilliant addition to activpayroll’s plethora of global locations, having an additional office in the UK exemplifies the rate at which the organisation is growing and the need to have more team members in the UK to help with customer demand.

“Despite having a customer base which spans the globe, many of our big-name customers have a base in England, many in Manchester itself, therefore being in closer proximity to them will help greatly. Manchester also offers an incredible talent pool and as we look to gradually grow the office, we look forward to hiring from a range of different skillsets around the city.”
