The Academies Show, 26 April 2017
ExCeL, London, Stand: 418
Carval Computing, provider of fully integrated Payroll and HR solutions has opened its new Education Payroll Bureau and is processing payrolls for over 100 academies and maintained schools. The dedicated team at Carval has been providing Education specific services since 2012, and the Education market now makes up over a third of Carval’s expanding payroll bureau business. Carval will be at The Academies Show, demonstrating its most comprehensive range of HR and Payroll software for Education to date. Carval’s wide range of solutions enables schools and academies to take a pick and mix approach to Payroll and HR services, choosing a flexible package to meet their exact requirements whether that is processing payroll completely in-house, totally out-sourcing, or a combination of the two, and with the option of fully integrated HR.

Jennie Rowan, Schools Payroll Manager at Carval said; “The Education sector is an increasingly important market for Carval, and our rapidly expanding Education Payroll Bureau is testament to our experience in the sector. By using our own software we are able to provide a truly cost effective service. This, together with our focus on delivering individual customer support, where each academy, school or college has a named, dedicated payroll officer to ensure everything runs smoothly, is a key differentiator for us.”
Carval, a BACS approved bureau, uses its own Payroll software Uniwage which is part of HR Unity. It calculates all statutory payments (SMP, SPP, SSP, SAP and student loads), it processes incremental progression and pay awards, company sick pay and maternity pay, other third party BACS payments including HMRC, pensions, union fees and court orders.

The Carval Payroll Bureau can help with the assessment of employees for auto enrolment, producing monthly workforce pension letters. The service provides monthly management reports prior to payday, completion of EPF1 and EPF68s, monthly Teachers Pension Returns reported to the Local Authority for community schools and uploaded to the STU for academies. In addition, the service provides one payslip per employee, regardless of the number of posts held, simplifying the process for staff and saving significant costs on per-payslip charging.

HR Unity provides all standard Payroll and HR functions plus recruitment, absence management, performance management, training and Time & Attendance. It has many features designed specifically for the education market, including term time working, multiple job posts, aggregated National Insurance, monthly and annual Local Government Pension returns. With its proven interfaces to a range of business solutions for resource management such as Capita SIMS, iSAMS, and Sage X3 and Accounts IQ for financials, HR Unity provides an end-to-end solution for managing people and resources.
