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 2014/15, including:

  • Printed reports P11 and P32 have been updated for the new tax year.
  • Updated PAYE tax rates for 6th April.
  • If you have an always-on Internet connection then any updates to the PAYE tax rates through the year will be downloaded automatically.
  • Updated SSP rates (including the abolision of the Percentage Threshold Scheme).
  • Updated SMP/OSPP/ASPP/SAP rates.
  • Updated Collection of Student Loans threshold.
  • Updated Class 1 National Insurance Contributions rates.
  • Employment Allowance support added. See How do I Claim Employment Allowance?.
  • 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 2014/15. This includes a new "Late Reason" pop up if sending your FPS after pay day.
    • Employer Payment Summary (EPS), in "Monthly Procedures/Reports" -> "Internet Filing of Returns", has been updated for the year 2014/15 (to clarify this, the year is now included in the option name).
    • If you have not yet submitted your final EPS for 2013/14 then you can still do this by selecting the "2013/14 Final submission for the year" box, or going to "Yearly Procedures/Reports" -> "Internet Filing of Returns".

Coming soon: Automatic Enrolment

  • Assess your workforce.
  • Use postponement.
  • Calculate pension contributions.
  • Handle opt-in and joining.
  • Handle opt outs and refunds.
  • Generate letters to your staff.
  • Keep records and provide reports.
