Timesheets, attendance within Payroll Software

Suggestions of reasonable priced software

Didn't find your answer?

We are using Brightpay for our payroll.  We did not subscribe to the Connect.  

New tax year means renewal and was thinking to Renew with Brightpay and add Connect to replace our existing holiday management tool. But we also want to method for timesheets and staff clocking and out software. I dont think Brightpay offers this. Any suggestions please?

How many employees do you have? And how many of them have hours that vary from week to week?

A clocking in system sounds like overkill for a small workforce and suggests that you don't really trust your staff.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news ... but you've left it very late (almost certainly too late) to implement a new payroll system for the new tax year - and that's if your needs are simple and unvarying.
Once you introduce concepts like "timesheets and staff clocking in and out" then I presume you realise you'll probably have to set-up working-patterns (so software can correctly allocate different pay-rates and determine authorised vs unauthorised absences, etc) - which in turn may necessitate reviewing/updating your employment contract T&Cs.
As Paul hints ... are you really looking to get that involved in the minutiae of control of working hours, and have you identified the payback from what is likely to be a substantial investment (if done properly)?

A very wise investment for anybody with variable hourly paid people at min wage level. If HMRC coming knocking, they will require proof, including time sheets that min wage has been paid.

Interesting point ... but timesheets (or even a full blown T&A system) won't provide full protection during an NMW investigation. Whilst a good start, there's several other 'time' factors that may need to be taken into account (of which travel time is the most common) - and plenty of 'non-time' factors (such as deductions). When combined with their ability to look back and perform abstruse calculations relating to individual weeks, it is a nightmare that I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy!
