Gateshead based Cintra HR & Payroll Services; UK leader in flexible payroll and HR systems and services is celebrating after picking up one of the most sought-after accolades at the National Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP) Annual Excellence Awards last week.

The CIPP Awards are a true celebration of an amazing and sometimes underappreciated profession. With over 285 pieces of legislation impacting on the industry in the UK alone and over £250 billion collected through National Insurance and tax contributions, payroll and pensions play a significant role in the UK economy. The Awards herald the payroll and pension professionals who have made an outstanding contribution and demonstrated a commitment to excellence in their industry.

There is no doubt that 2020 has been a challenging year. During such confusion and uncertainty, you need a payroll service partner you can depend on, which is why we are tremendously proud that Cintra has been recognised as Payroll Service Provider of the Year 2020.

Payroll Service Provider of the Year is one of the most hotly contested categories and the standard of entries this year broke all records, with 17 companies making it onto the shortlist.  To be crowned the winner in such auspicious company is an amazing achievement. In an increasingly complicated world, Cintra were recognised for giving clients clarity, efficiency, and stability, just when they needed it most.

Commenting on the award win, Cintra Chairman, Carsten Staehr said:
“This award means more than ever this year. Payroll professionals have been under immense pressure – remote working, changes to legislation, introduction of new legislation and processes – it’s been a tough year on all fronts that’s for sure. I’m so proud that the team at Cintra have been recognised for the truly amazing effort they put in to making sure that our customers continued to receive the top class service they have come to expect from us. These challenging times have brought out the best in the Cintra family, who have remained the friendly face of HR and payroll throughout. We worked hand in hand (metaphorically obviously…no touching allowed at the moment!) with our clients to make sure that their employees were paid accurately and on time…we were there as the 4th emergency service whenever they needed us. To be recognised by the CIPP as Payroll Service Provider of the Year is truly a ray of sunshine in a stormy sky!”

We understand that many people are still working remotely…but this award reinforces that, with Cintra, you are never alone!
