As we continue on our mission in ending employee admin here at Breathe, we are delighted to introduce our payroll export tool - a brand sparkling new feature that is now available within our software.  

The payroll export functionality has been carefully designed with the intention of streamlining the way Breathe customers manage their payroll by keeping all sensitive information in one secure place, taking the headache out of importing employee data to their payroll system and saving valuable time as a result.

Whilst building the tool we listened to a variety of UK businesses and payroll providers in order to gauge the exact requirements needed for the feature to be compatible with the systems our customers use. And the result? A brand new functionality that makes importing updated employee data a breeze. 

What does the Breathe payroll export tool do?

In short, the payroll export tool allows you to download payroll-ready files of employee information from the Breathe system that can be imported straight into payroll software in just a few clicks. The tool can be used for onboarding new employees’ details and updating existing ones too.

Gone are the days of tedious manual payroll updates - with Breathe updated information can be imported in bulk - promising to drastically reduce the amount of time our customers spend on their payroll admin each month. 

Export payroll-ready employee information

During the building process of this functionality we worked hard to ensure that it would meet the import requirements of a wide variety of payroll providers in the UK.

As such, we have provided customers with two options when they go to export employee information. They can either download all of the data with the changes included (e.g. salary adjustments), or alternatively they can simply export any changes that have occurred within the data. The process can therefore be tailored to whichever payroll system customers are using.

Say goodbye to tedious payroll admin

When pulling data with the payroll export tool, employee information is separated into four different spreadsheets. These files cover the following changes 

  • Employee personal information
  • Salary information
  • Benefit information
  • Additional payment information

With this data readily split into categories, there is no longer a need for customers to spend unnecessary time fine-combing large amounts of data in order to find what they need.

Payroll, the Breathe way

Once exported from the Breathe payroll export tool, spreadsheets of data can be imported directly into a payroll system – just like that.

And, if data needs to be adjusted and/or re-downloaded, Breathe has it covered: all past exports can be rebuilt and re-run.
