Frequently Asked Questions about our Umbrella Payroll Software
Does your Umbrella Payroll Software allow for offsetting expenses against taxable pay?
Yes, our Umbrella Payroll Software does although this isn’t requested very often anymore.
Are there any hidden costs with your software?

Are you able to retain holiday for workers?
Yes, you can retain holiday pay.
Are we able to amend the payslip?
We tend to charge for payslip amends however if you let us know what you would like amended and we can produce it easily then we would not charge for it.
Are we able to use a payslip portal?
Sage has its own payslip portal that we can utilise if needed.
Can we password protect payslip emails?
We are able to password protect the pdf payslip within the emails using information held within the Forest software.
Is there an invoicing add-on also?
We have an invoicing module which connects to Sage50 Cloud Accounts. If you have this software then we will add the Forest program for free and you can then produce invoices to send off to the individual agencies for the timesheet lines processed in the current period.
