Payroll services for academy schools

Our payroll software has been specifically developed for the education sector.

Academy school payrolls are unique and, as such, require a specialist solution tailored to their needs. One of the key requirements of your academy’s payroll will be the application of Pay Spines. These Pay Spines allow for the incremental progression of salary within a grade, in addition to dealing with multiple employments.

At UHY we have a software solution that is used across the sector by local authorities, payroll service providers and various academy structures. The system is tailored to the needs of academies, giving you the comfort of absolute trust that your staff will be paid accurately and on time.

Why is our solution different?

Our payroll software has been developed for the education sector and has many features specific to the requirements of academies. In addition, it is RTI compliant and provides a comprehensive processing service at a reasonable price. The system’s capabilities include:

• a Pay Spines system that we can tailor to your pay scale needs, whether they be national, local or totally bespoke scales

• support across a range of employments,for both teaching and non-teaching staff

• the ability to calculate pay based upon grade points within a pay band

• automatic calculation of retrospective increases where your employee point settings are changed

• multiple banded pensions per employee

• support for both local authority and teachers’ pensions reporting requirements
