Sage Payroll is cloud-based payroll software with HR capabilities. You can access it online from anywhere, 24/7 and complete all of your core admin tasks. Quickly and easily create employee records and pay your people in four simple steps, while also managing them from the same place. You can create payments and deductions, accurately calculate PAYE, National Insurance, pensions and more, before creating payslips for your employees and submitting your payroll information to HMRC or pension providers. The HR capabilities now added to Sage Payroll let you keep on top of managing employee leave so that payslips are accurate. This will also let you seamlessly manage documents electronically, update records at any time, and pull accurate HR reports.

It’s designed for sole traders and small businesses operating in any industry, including professional services, construction, and retail.
