Get payroll under control & employee leave organised

Payroll that gives you your time back

Save time and pay all your staff at once with our click-to-pay feature in Clear Books. No more copying and pasting of personal or bank account details, our software does it all for you so you can feel good knowing that Payroll is under control without spending hours on it.

Calculate employee pay automatically

Calculate pay for your employees in 3 easy steps:

1. Set up your employee(s)

2. Set weekly, fortnightly, monthly, quarterly or annual payments

3. Run payroll. Clear Books automatically calculates employee pay, tax, and other deductions.

Create payslips, P45s and P60s in seconds

Customise payslips, P45s and P60s with your company's logo and colours. Once you're set up, producing forms takes just one click.

Send payslips to employees via email, print, or allow them to view forms online by granting access to the employee portal.

Report directly to HMRC

Clear Books links directly with HMRC. You can submit Real Time Information (RTI) with the click of a button.

Clear Books supports Employer Payment Summaries (EPS), and Full Payment Submissions (FPS), and we are a recognised payroll software supplier with HMRC. With Clear Books, you can be sure that your payroll compliance is in safe hands.

Know exactly what payments to make

Clear Books payroll and Clear Books accounting are integrated. When you run payroll, Clear Books raises bills to pay for each employee and for HMRC. That way, you'll know what payments you should make in online banking, and your bookkeeping will be complete.

If you use NatWest or RBS Bankline, Clear Books makes online banking payments easy. Simply download a file from Clear Books, and upload it to NatWest or RBS. The payment file tells your bank your employee's bank details and the value of each payment. Payroll and payments will be completed quickly.

Easily manage employee leave

Keep track of employee leave without hassle. Your team members can request leave (e.g. holiday or illness) in seconds, and you'll always know how many days they have remaining.

It's a simple way to eliminate manual spreadsheets and calendars. All you need to do is provide your employees with access to the employee portal.
