sage payroll cover


R

Richard

I am looking for a new payroll solution and am considering Sage
Payroll. Is it absolutly necessary to purchase the sage cover in
addition to the software? Is it possible to simply amend the Tax and
NIC tables manually? Can I avoid paying the £250 for cover until
forced to by legislative changes? Not having a copy of the program I
do not know if this is possible.

I don't think it is possible to change the tables manually, and in any case
the govt often changes more than just the table values. Things like
student loans and various tax credits have come in in recent years.

You could look at Iris PAYE Master which costs £155 per year. There are
plenty of others as well.

You say there are plenty of others, but what are they? I have looked
and Googled but alas have found nothing other than Iris and one that
is cheap but does not seem to handle weekly payroll too well.

I'm aware of TAS Payroll, Quickbooks - though I don't think that comes
separately from the bookkeeping package, and Pegasus.

The Inland Revenue has a list of approved payroll software on their site.

Never more than 10, but staff turnover in the year pushes the names up
to 20-25 in a year, otherwise I would use sage instant.

I have just started using Moneysoft Payroll software and it is very
good. It only costs £100 plus vat for multi-company use, it's even
less if you just want it for 1 company and includes all the modules,
eg pensions, that many other companies charge extra for.

You can download a demo and use it for a month.

I think it's essential to have Sagecover. In the land of payroll more
changes than just the rates.

You have 20-25 different people on your payroll in a year and you are
trying to not pay for support costing 250 pounds? You'll come unstuck
with that attitude.
