The New Deal in Payroll Software and End of Year Filing
5th October 2005 - PayThyme wins Linux and Open Source 2005 Awards:
At the dinner and awards ceremony for the Linux and Open Source Awards 2005 PayThyme took the award in the category for the Best Linux/Open Source Server Application.
The awards event, organised by Maggie Meer of Linuxuser & Developer magazine, saw such
well-known names as IBM, Red Hat, Nokia and Hewlett-Packard winning
awards in other categories.
PayThyme is a UK statutory payroll software package. It offers payroll professionals many benefits and we believe that it will, in time, become the standard by which payrolls in general are judged:
- Power and Flexibility
PayThyme runs the largest and most complex payrolls, but is easy to configure and use.
- Freedom of use
You can use PayThyme as you wish, with no restrictive licencing getting in the way of the day to day running of your payroll.
With no inbuilt limitations on employee numbers, number of payrolls and number of users, your PayThyme system can grow with your business.
- Control over costs
No need to pay more each time you increase employee numbers or run more payrolls - a single annual subscription pays for support for the next twelve months regardless of how many additional employees you take on.
- Value for money
PayThyme is a turnkey solution, with everything you need to run your payroll, plus training of your payroll personnel and Premium Support for the first year.
Inland Revenue End of Year Returns : Filing by Internet . . . talk to us today!
It is compulsory now for employers with more than 50 employees to make their EoY submissions online or face financial penalties. HMRC provide an online facility of their own to enable employers - typically those with only a few employees - to do this.
Employers with fewer than 50
employees do not have to do this yet, but if they do, they get a financial incentive from HMRC each year until to 2010, when filing online becomes compulsory.
To help employers HMRC have provided an on-line filing service using the Government Gateway : e-filing, or Filing by Internet (FBI).
PayThyme payroll has its own software for online submission of EoY returns,
which we call FileThyme. FileThyme will run independently of PayThyme,
on Windows or Linux. If your payroll does not have internet filing
facilities, talk to us - we can help you.
Whether you are a payroll administrator, a payroll bureau or a
payroll software developer, FileThyme can help - quite apart from sales
of our own complete PayThyme payroll, hundreds of payrolls developed by
other companies are now using FileThyme as their EoY filing module.
HMRC told us that they received EoY submissions from at least 1315 employers for hundreds of thousands of their employees, via FileThyme during April and May 2005. These employers included submissions from payroll bureaux, temporary staff agencies, major building contractors, a nationally-known charity and many others.
Even more submitted their returns online using FileThyme in 2006 and 2007, while in 2007 the P14 error rate for FileThyme improved dramatically from an already industry-beating 0.02% (industry average for P14 errors was 4.5% and HMRC's own online software returned a 0.2% error rate), to just 0.007% for the 2007 tax year - these figures come from HMRC.
Contact us today to discuss your payroll and EoY filing needs.
Out-source your payroll to PayThyme Bureau Services
As well as providing PayThyme systems for end users, we offer a payroll
bureau service for businesses of all sizes. We can also help you submit
your EoY and other submissions to HMRC and other
Government Departments online, using FileThyme, our own Government Gateway standards-compliant Internet submissions software.
Call Vanessa Hayling or Jim Welch on 0121 313 3855 to discuss these services.
