Setup my organisations business details via the payroll platform

As a business, you will constantly undergo changes that could be just be a simple phone number change right through to updating your business name and legal entity. These changes form a natural part of managing a business because as you grow, expand, and diversify, your organisation will need to change to meet these new conditions.

You can use the Business Details feature to update your organisational information stored within your payroll platform. The platform will reflect these changes you made in the business details section throughout the entire payroll platform.
