Alison Sellar, CEO of activpayroll launched the business in 2001 in Aberdeen, Scotland as a local firm providing payroll services to the oil & gas industry. 19 years later, activpayroll is a leading global professional service organisation, providing integrated global payroll solutions, expatriate taxation services and online HR people management tools to over 1,200 companies in more than 140 countries worldwide. activpayroll currently has ten global offices in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Singapore, Florida, Frankfurt, Isle of Man, Paris, Dubai, Cape Town and Perth, Australia. activpayroll has one of the largest and most experienced international payroll and expatriate tax teams in the world. activpayroll does not, and never has, relied on a sales team, in fact all growth has occurred through word of mouth. The great reputation and recommendations are reflected through the ever-growing customer base and global reach. Customers vary from local charities to some of the world’s leading brands across a number of sectors, including: automotive, aviation, construction, energy, investment, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, technology, transport, mining, retail and many more.
“activpayroll helped us build and deploy consolidated payroll services across eight European countries at a monthly pace. This allowed HR to centralize our International operations and provide focus to strategic services. Additionally, the company’s global experience allowed for the rapid 4-week activation of Bahamas’ expatriates due to a recent acquisition.”
“Prior to implementing activpayroll, we were manually updating spreadsheets to ensure our international employees were paid correctly. Now, with activpayroll, not only is our process completely automated, but our international employees experience a seamless pay experience.”
