Coding accuracy ensured

Cezanne HR’s payroll module automatically retrieves and applies PAYE coding notices (P6, P9, SL1, SL2, PGL1, PGL2) directly from HMRC, including tax codes for Scotland and Wales.

That means, for example, the system will know when to start or stop deductions for student and postgraduate loans, and
apply the latest rates and thresholds. It is one less thing for you to worry about.
