Human resources (HR) and payroll software company Carval has launched a new payroll bureau service for users of its acclaimed Unistaff HR Software. The service, which is provided by Carval’s qualified payroll team, delivers either traditional or secure electronic payslips (e-payslips) and uses the bureau interface included as standard in the Unistaff module.
In addition, employees of those clients with Carval’s Employee Self-Service Software installed will be able to access current and historic payslips, P60s and P11Ds, via a secure browser. All users of the new service receive full management reports and have a dedicated account manager on hand to guide them smoothly through the process.
John Ovington, sales and support director of Carval, believes that the new service is a reflection of client’s needs and will deliver significant benefits to users. He said: “For many businesses, the increasing burden of payroll legislation has become highly problematic. The payroll function is now far more than the deduction and payment of tax and national insurance. Recent legislative changes include: contracted-out NIC rebates, tax credit payments (Disabled Persons and Working Families), student loan deductions, and the European Commission’s Working Time Directive. Coupled with this, the risks of non-compliance are huge.”
