These often don't merit an announcement on their own, but we like to occasionally list them here in case any are of use to you, so here goes...
Employers can now choose to increase their contributions by a percentage of what their employees are contributing. For example if you have a Salary Sacrifice pension then you could contribute your employer NI saving to your employees pension by setting this to 13.8%.
We're now actively working on NHS and Teachers' Pensions.
We're not comfortable yet saying you can use them for live payrolls, but if this is your thing then please do take them for a spin and let us have any feedback.
Want to give everyone a increase in their pay by a set percentage? Now you can.
Once you've created a P11D(b) under the RTI tab, you can download the details to a CSV file
Our Accrued Holiday Pay feature has proven very popular.
We recently added an option so you can set a pay code to not contribute to accrued holiday pay.
Not every employer is going to want the same format for the description field of their BACS payments. So we've made the default editable. Just edit your Employer details and go to the Bank Account tab to set it however you like.
If you use the feature to import payments from a CSV file, you can now do so without providing the hourly rate.
As long as the pay code you choose is an hourly code and has a default value entered in the system then we'll use that as the rate.
If you use our Employee CSV import then no doubt you've come across the issue where Excel will try and be helpful by stripping out leading zeros on phone numbers, sort codes, account numbers, etc. We now try and automatically fix this issue for you. For example if you try and import a 7 digit account number we'll add the leading 0.
Is there something we can change or add in the software to make managing your payroll easier? If so, please do let us know.Duane Jackson, July 27, 2020
