A New Year – You’re Still Compliant

    1 minute read    

With the new tax year underway since 1 January, we’d like to reassure you that our system has been updated to ensure that you are always compliant with legislation. There is no need to do any manual updates as in other payroll systems – simply continue processing payslips into the new tax year. Your payroll will automatically meet all the requirements for the 2018 period, as announced in the 2018 Budget on 10 October 2017. If you are still processing payroll for the 2017 tax year, the old tax rules will still be used, as you’d expect.
