Introduction to IRIS GP Payroll

On Demand Webinar

Who is the course for?

This On Demand webinar is essential for anyone new to GP Payroll or anyone wanting a refresher of the features and functionality within GP Payroll. It will ensure you have a good grounding and understanding of not just the software, but legislation surrounding the most common payroll tasks like statutory payments such as SSP and SMP plus workplace pension reform.

What will be covered?

The course will be in three parts;

Part 1 will cover the how, and why within GP Payroll. We will not only show you how to do some of the common things within GP Payroll but explain the why.

GP Payroll Overview: A quick overview of the layout and conventions used within GP Payroll to familiarise yourself with the software

  • Employees: People often misunderstand what you need to do with new employees & leavers and why the process is important
  • Payments & Deductions: As well as having a number of standard payments & deductions, GP Payroll allows you to show separate items on the payslip
  • Statutory Payments: We will cover the two most common statutory payments, SSP (Statutory Sick Pay) & SMP (Statutory Maternity Pay)
  • Real Time Information: Real time information (RTI) was introduced in 2012, most employers know they need to do it but few understand why, when, and what to do if things go wrong
  • Correcting Error’s: What to do if things go wrong, how to fix them and things to remember

Part 2 will cover Automatic Enrolment Legislation. Workplace pension reform (WPR) and automatic enrolment are not the same thing. Automatic enrolment is one of the most important parts of workplace pension reform.
