Our Story

Established in 1970 within the Jefferson Smurfit Group and became a Private Limited company as a result of a MBO in 1992. We are a full managed payroll services provider delivering payroll outsourcing services to both indigenous and multinational companies in Ireland for 50 years.

Jefferson’s office is now located in Beaver House, Beech Hill Office Campus, Clonskeagh Dublin 4, Ireland. We are 26 employees and work from this location. Our payrolls start from just 1 employee to companies with payrolls in their thousands.

We are ISO accredited and see ourselves as a pure payroll provider so our entire focus from software development and implementation, to processing, payments and customer care are 100% payroll focused. We process monthly, bi-monthly, fortnightly, weekly, 4-weekly, and quarterly payrolls to the public, cloud technology, communication services, retail, pharmaceutical, aviation, financial, manufacturing, and information technology sectors.

We believe our distinctive touch and partnership approach helps you get the very best value out of your service. Over 375 companies in Ireland choose Jefferson as their preferred supplier ranging from very 1 person companies to companies in their thousands. 

Many of the top blue-chip companies from around the world turn to Jefferson Payroll to ensure that every pay day is happy one for both them and their employees.


Our Software

By developing our own payroll software and associated data tools in-house, we can be flexible in meeting the service needs demanded by today’s payroll, HR and finance professionals. 

This helps you to take advantage of the latest technology and make it a pleasure to use.

Jefferson provides a unique service in that we promote the uploading of payroll data to our software to prevent manual intervention, e.g., keying, and therefore reduce the risk of errors.


Our development team provides payroll support & expertise and, where required, can customise the existing payroll software to satisfy specific input or output requirements:

  • Interface files to internal systems, e.g., General Ledger
  • Extract files, e.g., for your third parties 
  • Time & Attendance Data Convertors 
  • Custom reports, e.g., Headcount
  • Custom modules
  • Other input convertors (middleware)

We are passionate about payroll and we continuously up skill our staff to ensure we remain at the top of our game.
