Liz Tonks introduced IRIS PAYE-Master when she took over administrative responsibility for the company. She explained why she liked the product and why it was perfect for a small business because of its simplicity and ease of use.

“When I took over the wages I didn’t know what to do. My daughter had completed them manually up until that point but I wanted something that would do the job for me. IRIS PAYE-Master was recommended to me by a friend who did the same thing for a butcher’s shop and it seemed like the perfect solution for a small business.

“IRIS PAYE-Master is very user friendly. I had one lesson in how to use it and I have just followed those guidelines religiously. It does everything I ask it to do. And the time it saves is invaluable. It now takes me about half an hour every month to do the wages, which is perfect when your time is precious.

“The year end function is fabulous. You follow the instructions and everything is sent directly to the Inland Revenue. There is no time wasted or complicated forms to fill in.

“I’ve never had any major problems with it although if you do need to speak to IRIS support they are extremely helpful. I had a recent query over maternity pay. I spoke to someone and straight away they told me what I needed to know. I would certainly recommend this package to anyone.”
