One payroll: many payment intervals
Sage 50 Payroll 2011 deals with weekly, fortnightly, four-weekly and monthly payment periods, making it easy for you to manage your multiple payment intervals.
Overtime, bonus and commission calculations at the touch of a button
Save yourself some time every pay run by automating extra payments for your employees, such as calculating double time, tax-free payments, percentage bonuses and extra pay.
By creating formulas for each of your rewards, which can be applied to any employee's base rate, you don't have to spend time manually calculating extra pay.
Take a break from complex holiday calculations
When you've got people that work varying hours or shifts, it can become complex working out holiday entitlement and managing multiple holiday schemes. With Sage 50 Payroll 2011 you can calculate average pay and the holiday payment due for staff working both regular and irregular hours.
There’s a wide choice of layouts for your payslips which can be printed on plain paper or Sage Stationery. And if you want to personalise them, you can by adding messages and logos. You can even send via email.
Save time with your in-year submissions
There’s no need for you to spend hours re-keying information from HMRC when you get your in-year submissions via the internet.
Amendments received from HMRC, such as tax code changes, can be applied directly to employee records, saving you time and effort. And as it is a secure mailbox you know only you and HMRC can access it.
Your e-submissions can also be tracked by status and sender, so when you submit your PAYE returns online (a mandatory requirement for businesses in April 2010) you can see their status and the name of the person who sent them.
Add new employees quickly and easily
Take the effort out of adding new employees by simply entering their personal details and copy information such as payment rates, pension and holiday schemes from another employee.

Never forget a deadline or due date
Automatic reminders prompt you when you need to take actions, for example when you’re due to submit returns to HMRC.
