What is Pento?


With Pento, you can run your payroll in 3 simple steps so that adjusting, approving, and paying your payroll has never been easier.

The first step: editing your pay until the payday. This means you can make as many changes as you want with no limits and no payroll deadlines. And, to make this process even smoother, you can directly update any employee information like name, bank details, salary, work days and more, plus, you can enable Pento’s HRIS integration to sync people’s data automatically.

The second step: reviewing and approving. With Pento, you can add multiple approvers and confidently process your payroll, on time, every time. Simply set up a formal approval flow in Pento to ensure your payroll is correctly handled and audited. Then, reduce any errors and understand cost fluctuations by comparing changes in earnings to previous pay periods.

The third step: confirm your payroll! Just pay your employees and send payslips via email or HRIS with Pento’s integration, wrapping up an easy-to-understand, enjoyable payroll experience for employees. Pento will automatically report FPS and pay taxes to HMRC after every payday, ensuring your compliance with HMRC, and report payroll journals, where you can customise your payroll journal or automatically report to your preferred accounting software with our integration.
