News for School Payroll Staff


End of Year / Start of Year 2015 /16

Hello, and welcome to a special edition of the Novopay News.

In this edition, we provide you with information on the End of Year / Start of Year process for 2015/16, and show you where to find all the information and get all the help you need for a successful End of Year / Start of Year.

We know End of Year and Start of Year are a busy time for you at your schools. This is why we encourage you to get prepared early, and particularly to think about getting as much of your Start of Year information into Novopay Online before you go on your Christmas break.

If you were involved in End of Year and Start of Year last year, the process and support is the same. If you haven't been through an End of Year or Start of Year process before, don't worry, there is plenty of support available.


Regards,

Mathew Gordon
Manager Service Desk and Support
Education Payroll Limited
