It’s the end of the month and you’re busy working to get all your clients’ payrolls finalised. After all, the most important part of your job is making sure that employees are paid correctly and on time. Concentrating on the payroll can become difficult when you're interrupted by emails from clients requesting that you send them copies of payroll reports

For some clients, they may request reports from you on a weekly basis. Of course, you understand why payroll reports are so important to your client. Tracking payroll data allows businesses to control labour expenses and overhead costs. However, when you have many clients, the constant running, downloading, and emailing of payroll reports can add up to a lot of time that could be better spent on other tasks. Nevertheless, you don’t want to ignore these requests from clients and prefer to respond to them promptly. So, how can you achieve the best of both worlds?

How to stop payroll report requests from clients while still giving them the data they need

While you could hire more staff or work longer hours to deal with these requests, these are not ideal solutions. Luckily, technology can now be used to ensure that you can concentrate on the payroll without having to break to respond to payroll report requests. The best way to put a stop to clients asking for reports to be sent to them is by giving them access to the reports themselves. Allowing client’s the ability to run their own payroll reports anytime, anywhere is possible when you use the right payroll software.

How your payroll software can allow clients to run payroll reports whenever they need to

BrightPay Connect is an optional cloud add-on to BrightPay payroll software. By introducing this online payroll portal to your clients, it will allow them to run reports through their own employer dashboard. BrightPay Connect comes with a number of common payroll reports preprogrammed, such as Payroll Summary, Employee Details, Annual Leave Summary, HMRC Payments and CIS reports. 

If you have a client who wants specific details included in their report, that’s no problem either. Through BrightPay’s payroll software on your desktop, you can create customised reports for your clients with hundreds of categories to choose from. Once the report has been created, you simply name it and save it and it will automatically be added to the client’s online dashboard available for them to run whenever they need to. As clients have access to the employer dashbord anytime, anywhere, it means that the client has access to their reports instantly, even on public holidays and weekends. 

BrightPay Connect can take the task of sending payroll reports to clients completely out of your hands. When your clients use BrightPay Connect they and their employees can benefit from a range of other features such as online access to payslips, annual leave management and sharing documents.
