Payroll software

Payroll software

Didn't find your answer?

A client who runs a pub is looking for payroll software - recommendations please.

There are a number of part-time employees (maybe 40 or more in a year). They currently have book-keepers using Sage Payroll, but problems arise when an employee wants a copy payslip for an earlier week - once Sage is closed off then it would have to be restored to that week to redo a payslip. Obviously they could print out file copies of each payslip each week, but that would use up a lot of paper and space.

I use PAYE Master for my clients but that does have the same problem.

They are considering doing the payroll themselves manually, which seems to me like a huge waste of thime and effort. The employee who would do this is computer-literate so should be no problems with software. I'm not very keen on Sage payroll anyway and I think it would probably be far too expensive for that number of employees. Can anyone suggest an alternative - nothing too expensive, please!
Thank you.

Sage Payroll alternative
While I appreciate you have been given a number of alternatives already, I do think you should have a word with Access Accounts (not related to Microsoft). I have no financial interest in Access Accounts, but as an ex-partner of an accounting pratice in London I can recomend their product. You can connect with them through http://www.access-accounts.com

Good luck

Get a demo
Hilary,

Call up a couple of companies who supply the software and get them to demonstrate a couple of scenarios that concern you. This will help you make a decision and ultimately there will be more satisfaction in knowing that you have explored thoroughly the various options and made the right purchasing decision.

QuickBooks Payroll
Hilary
Option is available on QuickBooks Payroll by selecting payslips from the forms printing menu and entering the relevant dates or months in the date selection windows, then selecting the employee from the list. Very simple, quick and easy and produces an exact copy of the original.
