Newcastle Theatre Royal selects payroll system for auto-enrolment

Newcastle Theatre Royal Trust has selected a payroll system to help it comply with pensions auto-enrolment legislation.

The theatre will use Carval Computing’s HR Unity system for in-house payroll processing and HR functionality to help auto-enrol its 150 employees.

It will also manage the organisation’s staffing situation, which includes staff on regular, casual and permanent hours, with some employees having more than one job.

Pamela Dowds, director of finance at the Theatre Royal, said: “Due to the nature of the theatre business, we have complex staffing arrangements and we do not always have our schedule of performances confirmed at the point at which we are setting our budgets.

“Therefore, it was important for us that we could find a system that could deliver all the functionality we needed, including auto-enrolment, pensions contribution administration and post management, and deliver it all for a known price.”
