Pay Dates

The College agree to pay staff under their terms and conditions on a set day each month.  Remuneration is normally paid in arrears, in twelve equal monthly instalments, on or before the 24th of each month.  If this is a non banking day then it will be the banking day before then, (e.g. if the 24th is a Sunday then pay day will be Friday 22nd).

The normal method of payment is via Bankers Automated Clearing Services (BACS) to the employee’s bank account. Depending upon the type of contract, the individual will either receive a printed payslip or will log onto My HR to print their own.  Payslips will be ready to print each pay day.

The College will make the required deductions under the Pay As You Earn (PAYE) scheme as instructed by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) monthly from salaries.

The HR department must work to a very tight time scale to ensure that the 5,000 College staff receive the correct amount due to them each month on the above pay dates.  Therefore we require departments to provide us with information on time so we do not jeopardise any payments to staff.


The time whereby information should be submitted to us are referred to as Department Cut-Off dates and is the date by which you should have your information in to the HR department.  These are usually the last working day before the month in which the payment is to be paid. (E.g. information to be included in the April payroll payment needs to be in the HR department by 31st March of the same year).


Whilst we will do our best to process any information received after this time, because of the number of staff we are now paying each month, we cannot guarantee it.
