About Us

A very brief history of PayStream

That was then...

We started out over 30 years ago as a traditional firm of accountants offering a full range of services to small to medium sized enterprises. But by 2002, all that had changed. An increasing number of our clients were contractors and we chose to make taking care of their needs our core business. And we've never looked back.

....this is now

Over the last decade our customer base and our reputation has grown considerably. We have already worked with over 500 agencies this year and we're proud to say that over 90% of contractors using our services say they'd refer us to a friend.

Our values

Everything we do is based on core values, to help us address our customers' needs as best we can. We keep the following core values front of mind at all times:

Excellence

  • Exceed our customers' expectations
  • Get it right first time, every time
  • Ensure processes and systems are robust
  • Expect high standards of behaviour and professionalism from each other

Integrity

  • Do what we say we'll do
  • Remain open, honest and fair in all our dealings
  • Stay consistent and committed in everything we do

Agility

  • Be flexible and adaptable in meeting customer needs
  • Respond quickly
  • Adapt to market changes
  • Explore and develop alternative business channels
  • Find better, faster and smarter ways of working

Empowerment

  • Encourage feedback - no idea is a bad idea
  • Provide knowledge, development and training to achieve excellence
  • Provide the technology to succeed
  • Understand and own our objectives
  • Help each other achieve those objectives

We're serious about corporate social responsibility

For us, a social conscience isn't simply a box-ticking exercise, but something we like to encourage our staff to embrace as individuals and lead by example.

So as well as getting the basics right - like recycling every day and promoting a paperless environment - we also proudly support our staff who regularly take part in events like fun runs and bike rides to aid their charity of choice.

We've also set up a special committee to organise fundraising activities for the Anthony Nolan Trust, our dedicated charity which provides bone marrow and stem cell transplants for cancer patients.

Employee rights are a major priority of ours too - which is perhaps unsurprising given our line of work. Each of our staff, including our umbrella company employees benefit from a robust employment contract developed with our expert legal advisors, with full statutory entitlement to holidays, sick pay and parental leave under the protection of laws like the Agency Workers Regulations. And when it comes to helping others find work, we often volunteer at local schools to give students practice and guidance for that all-important job interview.
