Setup my organisations business details | Payroll Web 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 the Payroll platform. The platform will reflect theses changes you made in the business details section throughout the entire payroll platform.

So you have now updated your business details and you are now wondering what next can I do. There are two recommendations I would make on this front and they are:

  • Payroll Platform: Pension Settings This feature is where set up your workplace pensions details, such as your staging date and re-enrollment dates and whether to sync with an existing pension provider or add your pension scheme and contribution plans manually to the platform.
  • Payroll Platform: Setup BACs and HRMC Payment Files This allows you to set up your organisation's BACs and HRMC payment file details, such as the account name and number, and the financial institution code.
