Easter payroll

1 minute to read

The Easter holidays make you think of a few things – rolling chocolate eggs, some well-deserved days off and hopping about with the Easter Bunny. However, if you’re in the payroll business, your thoughts may be on how to stop the bank holiday disruption scuppering your one-legged plans.

Luckily, we’re making some temporary updates to our payroll deadlines that will help avoid any impact on your candidates’ payments and allow us all to enjoy the long weekend.

Payroll deadlines

This year, the Easter bank holidays are on Friday 14th April and Monday 17th April. For most of our weekly-paid employees, this means a change to their usual Friday pay day. We’re aiming for funds to clear in their bank accounts on Thursday 13th April, a day earlier than usual.

Due to this change, we’re bringing our payroll deadlines forward. To do this we need your help, and ask that you send cleared funds to us by midday on Thursday 13th April.

If you need to send your instructions or receive our invoice earlier at Easter, please let us know as far in advance as you can. As usual, please send payroll schedules and instructions to

Our opening hours

We close for the holidays at 5:30pm on Thursday 13th April and we’ll reopen on Tuesday 18th April. We hope you have a fabulous time over the holiday weekend.

How are you communicating with my candidates?

We’ve published an article on the Key Portfolio blog letting them know their Easter pay day and our opening hours. We’ll also be tweeting about it.
