Optimum Pay Sets Sights On Expansion With New Headquarters

Construction News Image
Payroll service provider Optimum Pay is spearheading a campaign for growth with the relocation of its headquarters.

The company is bringing its expertise under one roof in the £260,000 move to Crewe Business Park, creating about 20 new jobs in the process. Its current team of nine will now be based at Gawsworth House with another four staff recruited in the coming weeks.

Chief executive Carl Boulton said a further 15 positions are expected to be filled in the longer term.

He said: "Our new headquarters will enable us to develop dedicated divisions for public and private sector clients. We have a number of new contracts in the pipeline and the expansion means we can keep on progressing. Bringing everyone together from offices in Scotland, London and Essex will help us to work even more efficiently, making key decisions instantly."


Optimum Pay was established 18 months ago to provide payroll, financing and accountancy services for contractors. It works with clients across the world, ensuring they meet their legal obligations. The business has developed strong relationships within the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) and among recruitment agencies, offering contractors peace of mind in knowing they and their temporary workers are up to date with their tax affairs.

Mr Boulton said the business, which turned over £19 million in 2018, prides itself on its transparent and honest approach.

He said: "Instead of coming just from a payroll point of view, or just from an accountancy point of view, we operate from our clients' point of view. We ensure they are 100 per cent compliant and don't shy away from telling the truth. Some of our clients have £1 billion turnovers and we are there to make the payroll and accountancy side easier to manage and easier to understand.

"People work hard to receive their wages every week or month – it's down to us to ensure they are paid correctly and on time."

Paul Colman, chief executive of the South Cheshire Chamber of Commerce, said: "It's great news that Optimum Pay have decided to relocate their headquarters to Crewe as that'll create new jobs in the area.

"It's no surprise that a number of companies choose to locate in Crewe as it's got tremendous transport links and access to a good workforce. The town's reputation is growing, and with High Speed rail coming to the area, it is making it an easy decision for companies to locate here now."
