Christmas payroll dates 2018

Christmas office scene

It’s not even December yet but the shops are filled with selection boxes, the festive adverts are out and our minds are on Christmas payroll.

It’s one we like to tick off the festive to-do list nice and early, so if your agency pays candidates through Key Portfolio, here’s everything your Payroll team needs to know.

Payroll dates

In week commencing 17th December, we’ll be running payroll as normal.

In week beginning 24th December, it’s pretty much business as usual too – your candidates will get paid on the Friday as normal. One thing to keep in mind though is that Tuesday 25th and Wednesday 26th are of course bank holidays. If you normally send us payroll instructions or payments on these days, we’d be grateful if you could make provisions to send them either before or as soon as possible after the holidays instead, and by noon on Friday 28th December at the latest.

In January, we get straight back to normal again.

Opening hours

We’re closed from 25th December and will re-open as normal on 2nd January. Our Payroll team will be available for processing and support on Thursday 27th and Friday 28th December by email.

It is useful for us to know your agency’s Christmas opening times too and we would be very grateful if you would drop us a line with that information.

How we’ll be communicating with your candidates

On 1st December we’ll announce our pay days and Christmas opening hours on our blog. We’ll share the link to our blog in our online account area, in our pay day emails throughout December and on Twitter.

From everyone here at Key, we wish you a very merry Christmas and look forward to working with you in 2019!
