How do I add a new business?


You can use the Add New Business feature to add a new organisation to your existing payroll platform account.

NB: If you want to add an additional business, and you are a brand user, see here for instructions. If you are a full access user, you will need to first log into a business (any business) that you have access to. From there, select 'Add a new business' from the suitcase icon in the top left hand corner.
