Take the dive with Octopaye and you’ll experience a new world of efficiency when it comes to processing payroll. All payslips and portals can be branded with company logos and colours, you’ll have access to detailed reports, it’s a paperless system (a definite environmental plus point) and, since it’s cloud-based, you have secure access 24/7 wherever you’re working.

Crucially, Octopaye is HMRC recognised and fully compliant to UK legislation.


Many of our existing customers will know Octopaye through our first-born brand Recruit Payroll. Our software is the perfect fit for recruitment agencies running multiple payrolls to a broad range of temps and contractors in multiple locations.

Our company heritage was born out of years of recruitment, payroll and software experience. Recruit Payroll has been rebranded as Octopaye but it’s still the same great service and software. We knew our software had legs, so we took the plunge and Octopaye surfaced. This flexible, intelligent payroll software fits sectors beyond recruitment including accountants and franchise networks.
