Does the allowance box reset to zero automatically next year?
When submitting a new claim, the process will be done automatically. However, it is important to review the eligibility of the claim to ensure that it is accurate for this tax year.
If our first live is April 2023 - what do we do regarding those settings?
If you meet the requirements for Employment Allowance and Apprentice Levy, you can easily activate them in Pento. Once enabled, all compliant steps will be completed automatically. Employers whose salary bill exceeds £3m during the tax year must enable Apprentice Levy.
Do statutory payments automatically increase in Pento?
Yes, they will be automatically increased for the New tax year.
How do I manage the SMP with a mid-month payroll?
For the SMP system, it will automatically prorate this based on the dates of the Maternity.
Does any evidence have to be provided if the baby is born earlier than the MATB1 form date (for Paternity)?
For this case, we need all the paperwork specified in MATB1.
