Carval Computing has been selected by the National Housing Federation (Federation) to supply fully integrated Payroll, Time and Attendance and HR software. The Carval system, HR Unity, went live recently and is now handling two payrolls that cover all 135 staff at the Federation, as well as providing a flexi-time system and a full range of HR features. Additionally, staff are able to check their personnel records and outstanding leave balances using the Self-Service facility provided by the system. HR Unity replaces the organisation’s old payroll software that did not meet the requirements of RTI (Real Time Information). Having worked with HMRC on the RTI Pilot Scheme, Carval was one of the first vendors to bring to market a fully compliant solution.

HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) is developing a new online service for small and medium businesses. The new service will bring together in one place everything businesses need to manage their tax affairs. From a personalised homepage they will be able to view key information and access online services to manage their business tax affairs, for example: file tax returns, check and make payments, view important dates for future action.
HMRC is looking for volunteers to take part in a live trial of an early version of this new online service later this autumn. Volunteers will be able to access the service from any internet-enabled PC they are currently using and no special equipment or expert IT knowledge will be needed, just basic internet skills.
