Effective financial governance is a critical element in the successful operation of local authorities and the services they deliver.

In these changing times, councils can ensure best practice and value with the appointment of outside expertise to reduce overheads by utilising Barnsley Financial Services expertise.

Payroll services

Payroll has become increasingly complex with constantly changing legislation and policies. Our comprehensive service ensures employment law changes are implemented automatically, with our support you can relax knowing that it’s all in hand.

The complexities of payrolls are unique and need a team with specific and significant experience. We have been delivering quality payroll and pension services for some time and our team of qualified and highly experienced staff are here to guide you every step of the way.

Advice and consultancy

We offer health checks and efficiency reviews tailored to your individual needs. We can help you to develop and implement more efficient processes, taking into account statutory and legislative requirements.

Accountancy services

Barnsley Financial Services is wholly owned by Barnsley Council and was introduced within the council’s trading arm to allow us to offer our services to a variety of businesses and public sector bodies.

A key part of this strategy is to help other local authorities benefit from the wide range of skills and expertise we've gathered to provide flexible accountancy and payroll services. The benefits of this approach include:

  • reduced resource costs
  • ability to concentrate on core services
  • external governance and control
  • flexibility of provision
  • reduced training costs

  • Financial management systems
    We use world-class systems for financial management, payroll and accounting.

We can empower your organisation to grow and thrive in the face of increasing change.
  • Best practice and governance
    Let us handle your financial and accountancy needs and you'll benefit from our extensive skills and expertise.
