    What our clients say...

    "I’d just like to say that it’s been really great having such quick responses to all of my (many) queries. It meant that anything we weren’t sure of was dealt with really quickly, and helped to make the process go smoothly. I’s been really refreshing to have quick responses and an allocated staff member who is so willing to help!"

    Gill Wydrzynski, Administration Officer The Avenue Special Needs Academy
    It’s simpler to reconcile pay to contracts, and the Gross to Net reports we receive from SAAF are clear and easier to understand when compared to reports from our previous payroll providers.
    Warren Porter, Management Accountant | Transform Trust
    I appreciate that SAAF continues to add new services, we are already successfully using their payroll bureau for the four schools in Raleigh Trust, and have also signed up to use their asset management service. It’s nice to be able to purchase lots of different services from a company that is trustworthy, reliable, and flexible.
