Payroll Software recommedations

Looking for software that calculates pension deductions without the need for an add on.

Didn't find your answer?

Search AccountingWEB

We currently use iris payroll professional which i am finding very un-userfriendly. One of my main issues is that it does not automatically calculate pension deductions which we have to do manually and enter. We run payroll for just under 200 clients.

I know sage payroll lets you add pensions details under each employee and uses this to calculate the deductions each month. I do not really need a pension add on that most software seems to be offering at an extra cost as we do not do the pensions assesments or admin (which is down to the client).

Does anyone have any recommendations for payroll software other than sage that is both userfriendly and does automatically calculate pension deductions withouth the need for a costly add-on?

This question is asked probably once every week. The majority on here will recommend Brightpay or Moneysoft.

BrightPay all the way for me. Their auto enrolment features are intuitive and cover the majority of the admin you will encounter in running the payroll. The pension contributions can also handle salary sacrifice automatically and link well with a number of providers.

Another one for Brightpay. It handles everything seemlessly. Very user friendly. I hardly notice any extra now with payroll and AE. Excellent support as well but you probably wont even need it.

BrightPay and Moneysoft offer a pension facility at no extra cost. Both excellent products! We've been using BrightPay for several years now and it continues to get better and better. Best of luck!

If you want to consider a cloud-based system, take a look at https://www.staffology.co.uk

Brightpay is a great system and I'm not embarrassed to say we took a fair amount of inspiration from their desktop product when building Staffology.

As well as calculating and reporting pension deductions at no extra cost there are a load of other automation features (autopilot payroll, accounting integration, automatic processing of P6/P9/SL1 etc) that will save you a lot of time.

A Cloud-based version of Brightpay would be the icing on the cake.

Agreed! My understanding is that they're a long way from doing it themselves otherwise I may have been less tempted to build my own.

Software companies that have their roots in desktop software don't often transition well/easily to the cloud. It all looks like "software" from the outside - but it's actually so very different from both a technology and business perspective.

Just moved away from IRIS to BrightPay. Whilst I don't think I will ever come across the 'perfect' software that ticks every box, BrightPay is not far from it! Our clients love it too.

You won't regret it! I've been using Brightpay for a few years now and I'm very happy with it.
