Electronic Program Updates

As a user of our software you are probably entitled to update it to the latest version at any time, the only proviso being that the software is covered by current software maintenance. To have current maintenance, the software should be within it’s original cover period from sale (usually a year), under maintenance contract or under a rental agreement.

  • We are continually refining and developing our software. Updates can be done on as much as a daily basis. We don't 'hold back' software for specific release dates - our software is released as and when it has been written and tested.

  • Keep up to date with the latest software changes with our news.

Changes to Platinum's "Payroll" module that allow you to start processing the year 2016/17, including:

  • Printed report P11 has been updated for the new tax year.
  • Updated PAYE tax rates for 6th April.
  • Added support for the new Scottish Rate of Income Tax.
  • If you have an always-on Internet connection then any updates to the PAYE tax rates through the year will be downloaded automatically.
  • Updated Class 1 National Insurance Contributions rates, including:

    • The addition of new category letters added for apprentices under-25.
    • The removal of old category letters for contracted-out pension schemes, which have now been abolished, plus the removal of all related parameters (ECON, SCON, contracted-out rebate pension contributions, etc).
  • The system now automatically changes an employee's National Insurance category letter when they turn 16, when they turn 21, when they turn 25 (if they are using the apprentice under-25 category letter) and when they reach state retirement age (which is determined automatically from their gender and date of birth).
  • Updated SSP rates.
  • Updated SMP/SAP/SPP/ShPP rates.
  • Updated Collection of Student Loans thresholds, including the addition of new "Plan 2" student loans.
  • Operating PAYE in real time, aka Real Time Information - or RTI:

    • Full Payment Submission (FPS), which happens automatically when you close off a period, has been updated for the year 2016/17.
    • Employer Payment Summary (EPS), in "Monthly Procedures/Reports" -> "Internet Filing of Returns", has been updated for the year 2016/17 (to clarify this, the year is included in the option name).
    • If you have not yet submitted your final EPS for 2015/16 then you can still do this by selecting the "2015/16 Final submission for the year" box, or going to "Yearly Procedures/Reports" -> "Internet Filing of Returns".
