Step 2 : Uploading your company information

Last update: Tuesday, October 4, 2022

Well done for collecting your payroll data! 🥳

Now that you have all (or most) of your payroll data ready, it's time to input your company settings. This is a one-time setup during the first month to help the PayFit app understand your payroll practices and company policies. If one of the tasks do not apply for you (e.g. you do not have a bank account or pension scheme, simply click Complete this later.)


Tell us a little bit more about your company

Simply navigate to Welcome ! > Let's get started and answer a few basic questions to help us tailor your onboarding experience.


Configuring your company's settings

After filling in the Let's get started page, navigate to Welcome! > Onboarding checklist to access the Onboarding Checklist, which keeps track the pages you will need to fill.

Please read on to find more details:

My HMRC Details


Input your HMRC credentials here, so that we are able to send RTI submissions on your behalf every month. If you are moving from an accountant, there is a likelihood that they had their own credentials because they were agents, so you'll need to get your own.

💡 If you do not have your own HMRC credentials, please refer to this article.

PayFit does not have its own agent credentials since it is a software not an agent.
