Additionally, IRIS also offer P60s and payslips, to help ensure that your business has everything it needs to remain compliant with HMRC.

If you have all of your stationary needs sorted, why not register for the IRIS Payroll Year End Pack where amongst other things you’ll learn:

- Year-end processes under RTI

- What changes will affect you going into the 2016/17 tax year

- An introduction to auto enrolment (workplace pension reform)

The course is delivered online which gives you the flexibility to log-on and learn whenever and wherever you like, however if you prefer on-site training we can certainly arrange it for you.

Did you know that IRIS have also created the IRIS OpenPayslips software to provide your employees with digital payslips rather than physical copies? This often results in a significant cost saving as it reduces postage and paper costs, while remaining flexible enough that employees who prefer hard copies can have them as well.
