The amount an employer needs to pay to the HMRC each month or each quarter is automatically and dynamically consolidated. This amount is usually reflected in your EPR.

Accounting packages compatible:
The default setting for nominal accounting data export to an accounting package is Sage. However, the export setting can be changed to suit any accounting package you use.
