Each quarterly PayePass Verify audit scrutinises the full financial journey of funds through Exceed Contracting, from timesheet and invoice, through all processes and calculations, to payments to contractors and HMRC.

No other payroll auditing provider or current compliance standard analyses payroll functions and calculations to the extent that PayePass Verify does
