If you're working with Umbrella company payroll then your 2020 is off to a good start. We're really beefing up our Umbrella Features. At the beginning of the month we added CSV imports and now we're announcing to new reports
A new feature has just been added to help those of you managing multiple employers. We now have Employer Groups. You can set up as many groups as you like and you can then add employers to those groups.
Thanks to how easy it is to integrate other systems in to our payroll software, we now have a number of clients that are paying employees on an ad-hoc basis. Their systems tell our systems how many hours should be paid and the rest all happens by magic.
It's rare that we're asked if our software can do something and the answer is 'no'. But one of those things is daily payroll. When it comes to doing PAYE daily, it's tricky as it's not something HMRC recognises.
We're welcoming 2020 with the addition of a few new reports. Holiday Report - Found in the 'Employees' section of the 'Reports' area, the Holiday Report gives you an overview of the leave allowances for all of your employees at once.
We already have the ability to create departments and to add employees to a department (or multiple departments). That gives you a single level of analysis for your data which is sufficient for most of you
A new feature we've just added will make life a lot easier for those of you that are managing multiple employers. You can now configure the system so that when you create a new employer it copies settings from an already existing employer
Our Cloud CIS functionality has proven remarkably popular. I didn't realise just how little there was out there in terms of cloud-based, modern software for people paying subcontractors under the CIS scheme.
We're trying to stay away from any HR functionality as there are already a lot of great products out there for that. We want to stay very focused on payroll. Managing leave and holiday allowances falls in to that fuzzy space between HR and payroll and it's something some of you have said you really need.
Until today the CSV Importer for payments only supported importing the basic pay amount for a paylsip. You couldn't use this tool to import additional lines to a payslip. Now you can. Simply include the employee multiple times in the CSV file.
Whilst you've always been able to set the basic payment to employees as being either a fixed amount, an hourly rate or a day rate - when it came to adding additional lines you only had the option to add or deduct a fixed amount. Not any more
Umbrella companies have to do some pretty complex calculations to work out how much to pay an employee. This sounded like a challenge, so we've started building features to make these calculations as easy as 1, 2, 3.
The latest product additions are detailed below. There's a lot to like! Benefits, P11D and P11D(B). You can now record benefits for employees and create and submit the required P11Ds and P11D(B) at the end of the year. Which of course we'll do automatically for you
If you're already running payroll in another system then you can easily get started with Staffology or just see what it has to offer by importing an FPS file from your current software. What's an FPS? Every time you pay your employees your payroll software has to create a Full Payment Submission (FPS) file and send it to HMRC.
This month has mostly been focused on behind-the-scenes speed improvements and improved accounting integrations.. Accounting Integration. A journal entry will now automatically be posted to your accounting software when you finalise a payrun.
Another month gone and a raft of new features added to Staffology Payroll. Read on to discover what we've added in the last four weeks. NEST Integration. We're now fully integrated with NEST Pensions, so your pension contributions can now be automagically sent.
Just because we've now officially launched, doesn't mean that development has slowed down. We've added lots of new features in the past few weeks. Payroll Automation. Not everyone has the development resources
It's official. Staffology has now launched. This morning TechCrunch published a post breaking the news. The first (or was it the second?) phase is now over. The hard work of getting a product to market is done now the hard work of getting customers to love us begins.
The last update I posted was just before Christmas. Since then we've had a nice mention on AccountingWeb that ruffled a few feathers, and of course lots of progress on the software. I was aiming to get the software ready for public beta testing by the end of January and I'm pleased to say I reached that goal. Now anyone can sign up to try it out.
I thought I'd send a final Staffology update for the year before we all wind down for a bit over Christmas. There has been lots of progress in the past 3 weeks. Specifically: 1) Email: We've gone from zero email functionality to a lot of email-related features.
Since I announced the Staffology private beta a couple of weeks ago, lots more has been done based on your feedback. Below is a list of some of the changes and a heads-up on what we're now working on. Do let me know if you have any suggestions on what we should add/change or what the priorities should be.
