It’s payback time ... Lixnaw company set for UK market

By Marisa Reidy

LIXNAW-BASED software development and support company, Payback Payroll, is to expand its operations to the UK this summer, creating a number of new jobs in the process.

The company - whose packages have been in widespread use throughout ireland for over 25 years - will start exporting a new version of its payroll software to parts of the United Kingdom this May. This significant expansion has already resulted in Payback payroll taking on extra staff here to cope with the anticipated increase in sales.

News of the Kerry company’s expansion to the UK comes just days after Payback Payroll received an award at the Genesis Enterprise Awards for best market entry success.

At the award ceremony, Michael Cotter of AIB said that in light of recent concerns about job losses in the knowledge industry sector in Kerry and Cork, the success of a home-grown business idea is very encouraging.

”It is clear from the outstanding quality of the entrants into the programme this year that Cork and Kerry have a thriving and growing entrepreneurial spirit,” he said.

Since its foundation 25 years ago, the company’s list of customers has grown to include Microsoft, Tesco, AIB, Bank of Ireland and Banque Nationale de Paris.
