GDPR & Proof of Compliance
Payroll bureaus cannot just tell their clients that they are compliant with the GDPR legislation. They will need to prove that they are securely protecting any data that they process and manage. Client's payroll records should be securely maintained where the information is adequately protected under the rules of GDPR. Should your bureau be subject to an audit or a GDPR breach, you will need to show evidence that demonstrates you have taken the appropriate actions to protect your organisation and your client’s payroll information.
Securely Storing Employee Data
It is advisable to password protect any of your client's payroll reports and payslips that you may email out each pay period. Your payroll software supplier should provide a password protection feature for any client reports or employee payslips that are stored and exported from the payroll software.
Bureaus will need to provide detailed information on how long the personal data will be stored for. According to HMRC guidelines, you should keep payroll records for 3 years from the end of the tax year they relate to.
