Professional Sage Payroll Training Courses and Support

Platinum One Accountants provides bespoke Sage Payroll Training Courses. We work closely with clients to ensure Sage Payroll is tailored to the needs of the business. With our training you will save precious time and increase output – the results are simple; better performance, better productivity. It really makes the difference between working adequately and working effectively. 

Sage Payroll Training Services:

Our Sage Payroll Training is designed to provide you with in-depth knowledge of the payroll software and its functionality. From basic principles like navigation through to completing Period End routine, be confident in running payroll in-house.

Sage Payroll takes care of all the complex and time consuming tasks involved in paying employees, accurately completing Year End returns and complying with all relevant government legislation. The simple, clear, user interface and helpful wizards guide you through each payroll process swiftly and simply. It takes just minutes to install Sage Payroll, and could save you hours every payday.

Sage Payroll Key Features:

  • The Process Maps illustrates all the steps that makes up key processes – so you will always know what to do and how to complete a task. This makes it easier for you to get up and running and to ensure you never miss any stages in a task.
  • You can automatically set up records for new employees that have the same payment types and rates as existing employees, to save time and reduce the risk of error.
  • You can produce reports spanning multiple tax years, for greater planning capability. This new feature will help you to easily monitor trends and prepare budgets for future salary and resource requirements.
  • The Dashboard provides an instant view of important company information, for example, absences and payments by month. 
  • If you are responsible for processing your company’s accounts and use Sage Line 50 to do so, this new feature will be a great help. Sage Line 50 can now be launched directly from within the Sage Payroll program, allowing you to deal with accounts queries while conducting payroll tasks.
  • For your peace of mind, access to items within an employee record can now be restricted (e.g. salary details), to ensure sensitive information remains confidential.
  • You can link Microsoft Excel directly to your Sage Payroll data, enabling key members of your company to access and analyse payroll information without having to use Sage Payroll themselves – great for those times when the Company Director or Manager asks to see payroll data.
  • You can now store, view, modify and print a variety of documents relating to each employee, making your HR records easier to manage.
