A P60 is a statement outlining the tax and National Insurance (NI) contributions you’ve paid over the previous tax year. If you’re an employee, you’ll receive one at the end of each tax year. It’s important to keep this end-of-year certificate safe in case you ever have to prove the amount of tax or NI you’ve paid in the past. If you’ve lost your P60, you should be able to ask your employer for another copy.

What is a payslip?
A payslip is a formal document usually issued once a month, (but always on or before payday) that records the amount you have been paid and various deductions such as tax and national insurance. Payslips provide proof of earnings, tax paid and pension contributions. Payslips can be printed or provided in a digital format.
What is Zunoma’s payslip solution?
There are many payslip solutions. Ours is unique in that it integrates seamlessly with all established payroll software. It works as an extension of the company’s existing system and has an identical appearance. This negates the cost of purchasing new payroll software to upgrade.
How does payroll software automatically generate payslips?
Payroll software integrates with other core business systems to ensure that employees receive accurate, on-time compensation in the appropriate manner. Human Resources typically access the software to edit personal information, payment preferences, and other details. Once payroll has been run, a report will be produced and the system will either have an internal or external printer to supply physical payslips or a software solution to provide digital payslips.
What is the cost of payroll software?
There are many solutions on offer, typically priced on number of users – For growing businesses, scalability should be the focus. For these organisations, monthly subscription and per-user pricing are ideal as they can provide required features as the need arises. Finally for large enterprises, quote-based and software bundles are the pricing plans of choice as they come customised and have more features that big companies need.
How do I determine the best HR and payroll software?
First consider the number of employees and whether this is likely to grow, does your current payroll software allow for digital payslips – even if this is not a consideration now then it will be in the future. Do you need anything else such as an employee self-service facility or the ability to communicate and share information with your employees.
Is email safe for sending employees their payslips?
We would not recommend emailing a payslip, having a secure portal with unique logins is preferable to protect PII. If you choose to email payslips, you need to ensure that they are all password protected and sent directly to the employee’s chosen email address. It is very important that a unique password is used for each employee, as using the same password for all employees could be considered a breach of GDPR
