Instant pay results

Run your payroll when you want

Payroll is calculated at the start of the period, giving you early visibility of results and allowing adjustments to be made at any time. Our Activity Technology delivers instant calculations and results. The impact of changes can be viewed and acted upon immediately, increasing accuracy & reducing errors. No period end calculations are required., and late breaking changes are much more easily accommodated in large payrolls as there is no requirement to re-run the entire payroll.

Essential HR tools

Essential HR tools

Payroll and HR go hand in hand. That’s why you get tools allowing you to manage starters, leavers, employee records, absence, timesheets, work patterns and documents. Self service is tailored by user role and gives your employees access to the tasks and information they might need. Get things done correctly, quickly and efficiently.

Pension Auto Enrolment

Our payroll software allows you to determine and assess eligibility of employees for pension auto enrolment, feeding the results directly through to payroll for processing. This keeps the process simple and accurate, removing the need for complex interfaces with external assessment tools. You can also allow postponement options and the ability to handle cyclical (triennial) re-enrolment as required by UK pensions legislation.

Stay compliant all the time

At SD Worx, we constantly update our software to reflect changes in legislation, ensuring that you remain fully compliant and that there is minimal impact on your payroll.
