As a payroll service provider, we handle daily confidential personal information for you and your employees.
As part of the secure exchange of private data between us, we are pleased to announce that we have launched a new client portal, ‘MyePayWindow’, which is available to all clients using epayslips. This means the days of emailing or posting payslips, P60’s, payroll reports and payroll spreadsheets have gone and the new, secure, GDPR compliant ‘MyePayWindow’ portal will allow for this information to be shared between both parties at the touch of a button. The portal also allows for employees to reset epayslip PIN numbers automatically. You will also be able to provide payroll data through the portal.Read More
