Pegasus Payroll

Every business will have accounting software as a critical part of their business systems – and be this complex and integrated, or simple and stand-alone, the next most important consideration has to be their payroll.

An indequate payroll system can not only lead to embarrassing salary payment errors, but more importantly, expensive non-compliance issues when it comes to things like HMRC returns and ensuring that your business is fulfilling all it legal duties in line with new regulations.

Payroll for Opera 3 from Pegasus Software gives you the reassurance that your payments are accurate, your records are correct, and your legal requirements are fully satisfied. One in twenty employees in the UK are currently paid using Pegasus Payroll – which we think you will agree is an impressive statistic.

  • Unlimited employees, in up to 36 different payment groups, with up to 999 payment and deduction types
  • Multiple payment periods, for multiple companies
  • HMRC recognised for RTI and PAYE, plus online filing for both in-year and end-of-year returns
  • Auto Enrolment and RTI compliance
  • Multiple pension schemes
  • Retrospective National Insurance
  • Full tax and P32 processing, plus: P45, P46, P14, P35, SMP, OSPP, ASPP, SAP and SSP

With all the current legislative changes surrounding employee payments, both recently and going forward, it is comforting to know that your payroll software has it all covered. Pegasus Software have provided videos and datasheets to give you the information you need about their comprehensive payroll solution:

Auto Enrolment has seemed like a distant regulation for smaller companies for a long time now, but it is getting closer each month, and we urge you to start your preparations as soon as possible. You need to ensure that you know your compliance date (staging date), review which employees will be affected, submit your compliance data, and choose a pension provider. This will take much time and patience for many, so we suggest that you think ahead and plan to dedicate a “quiet time” in your business calendar to attend to this important matter.
