HR and Payroll Services
Avid Partners offer a number of day to day services that take the hassle out of the everyday financial administration of the business. These services include: payroll provisions, employment contracts, recruitment & selection, health & safety, company handbook compilation and outsourced personnel. We can offer specialised personnel to work onsite at your organisation and work hands on with your team through scheduled work placements. Every client’s requirements are unique and we work on an individualised basis to ensure needs are met. Here is a more detailed breakdown of our Human Resources & Financial Administration services.
Avid Partners excel in delivering payroll solutions to small and medium sized organisations. We offer an effective, fully managed payroll solution, whether you employ 1 or 50 employees. We also offer an executive payroll service that offers an outsourced, secure and discreet method of handling your payroll for senior management and executives.

We will also ensure that you remain legally complaint with ever changing legislation. Our payroll solution is simple, very effective and you maintain complete control. All processing is presented to you for review and approval.
A contract of employment is an important legal tool for all employers. At a minimum all employees must be provided with terms and conditions of employment. However an employment contract has a particular advantage to the employer as there are many items which can be included to protect the business. Employment contracts and employee handbooks are important documents and all employers should have them in place and ensure that they are kept up to date. Avid Partners can advise you on all aspects of drafting an employment contract and reviewing the terms and conditions of employment for an employee to ensure that your business is both compliant and protected.
Health and Safety
Health and Safety Regulations and Health and Safety Legislation can be difficult and time consuming to understand and comply with. Avid Partners can assist you in ensuring your business is compliant and protected. We offer a preliminary safety assessment and risk assessment that will indicate the level of compliance within your business. If required a full health and safety audit can be carried out. We offer practical solutions that can be quickly implemented where possible. We can also assist in preparing and updating you safety statement.
Recruitment and Selection
Avid Partners assist clients in recruiting finance, marketing and management executives. We focus on these core markets so that we may offer a bespoke recruitment service. We use a wide range of services and methods to ensure success in recruiting talented individuals. We aim to have a detailed understanding of our clients’ organisation in terms of culture, environment and strategic direction. We use advertised selection and executive search to allow us find the right candidate for your company. We work closely with our clients and ensure that all candidates are met in person before we present a short list.
A company handbook can be a means of communication, a source of reference and an aid to induction and training. It can be used to inform employees of the terms and conditions of employment, benefits, policies and the special rules that apply within an organisation. A well written, properly used handbook is an effective management tool. A company handbook should outline standards of conduct and safety, company regulations and the administrative procedures used to facilitate the efficient running of the business. Whilst it is not a legal requirement, many companies see it is an invaluable business tool in communicating effectively with employees and reducing the potential for ambiguity and misunderstandings between employer and employees.
Avid Partners can assist business owners in outsourcing their accounting, finance, administration and sales & marketing functions. We provide highly skilled and experienced individuals to take on these functions and work seamlessly alongside you and your staff. Outsourced personnel can deliver their services on or off site for short term or long term contracts for maximum convenience. Our range of HR solutions will reduce your recruitment costs and free up your time and that of your staff. Our services can also be delivered on an as needed basis or as a fully managed service customised to your needs. We provide practical and cost effective solutions and we review your needs regularly so that the service always matches the needs of your business.

Having got to know the company through the BNI we decided it was time to change accountant. What impressed me about Avid Partners was their professionalism. Their attention to detail was second to none and as an added bonus they are a sounding board to all of my questions. Avid also potted some irregularities in my accounts from the previous few years and saved me substantial money on the years tax bill. Avid Partners deliver a first class service which is everything you could want from an accountant and I am happy to give this endorsement.
