About Our Company

Stem Outsource are a dedicated specialist team of people developed over a number of years with knowledge and expertise in accountancy and payroll, providing business driven outsource solutions to clients.

Background & Information

Stem Outsource began its life when after producing end of year and management accounts for numerous years the directors saw the need for day to day ongoing accounting and payroll support become more and more relevant. As legislation grew and margins began to tighten, clients sought more efficient and cost effective ways of handling payroll and accounting functions.

Our heritage in the outsourcing field dates back to 1988 and our team grew quickly including bookkeepers, management accountants and financial director roles.

Handling clients with turnovers ranging from £50k to £40 million and staffing levels of up to 800 or so Stem Outsource has grown into an established and professional independent service provider.

Having relationships with most leading banks and major software providers the majority of our business comes from referrals and as such quality and trust are our key foundations.

The team here at Stem Outsource would be delighted to see how we can help your business and look forwards to receiving your call.

  •    20 Years and two businesses. This has been and still is my continuing association with Stem, built upon sound professional advice, integrity and an ethos of ' what else can we help our client with?' The thinking outside the box by Stem is something that I cherish and relish – another way to look as things, particularly when you are running a business on your own.

    I highly recommend all of Stem's dedicated team.

  •    We have been working with Stem for nearly 5 years now, and during that time they have proven to be an indispensable resource for us. We initially started using them to prepare our year end accounts and tax returns. Over time however we took the decision to outsource our Management Accounts function using their outsourcing arm. That was a decision we took with some trepidation, but it was critical that we reduced our internal overheads so the decision was initially cost driven.

    However, the impact on our business has been transformational and my only regret is that we didn't do it sooner. Stem have proven to be pivotal in our management team, assisting us set budgets, monitoring results, advising on internal systems and controls – as well as tax and other business advice. Stem offer a dedicated, professional service, combined with a person touch.

    I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them.

  •    We approached Stem Outsource for assistance following some issues within our accounts department. They were able to identify where we needed to make changes and helped us to restructure, training our accounts assistant and assisted in rebuilding our records. At every stage they took a lead in what needed to be done and within 3 months got our business back on to a growth path which they have help us ensure is maintained ever since. We view Stem Outsource as an extension of our business, a true partner relationship.
