Most employees get paid on the last working day of the month.
You get a new payslip each month, showing how much you’re paid that month, any deductions (like tax) and some other details. You can see all your payslips right back to when you started working here on the SAP Launchpad via ESS portal.
You can also view your payslips on Epay
Instructions of how to access your Epay account will be emailed to you when your first Epay payslip is available to view.

You can change your bank details by logging into the SAP Employee Self Service Portal. You’ll need to change your bank details by the 12th of the month to be paid into that account at the end of the month.
You can view your P60 on the Epay site, depending on when you started working here. Your P60 is a summary of your total pay and tax each full financial year (which runs from 6 April to 5 April).
You should receive your P60 every year by 31 May.
A P60 is proof of your income so it can be an important document if you’re applying for a loan or mortgage. Your P60 can't be used to update your tax code.
When you start working with us we’ll need your P45 so we can put you on the right tax code and pay you the right amount. Your P45 is a record of all your pay and tax taken so far in the current tax year.
If you don’t have a P45 (for example if you haven’t been employed before), you’ll need to fill out an HMRC starter checklist.
Without a P45 or starter checklist you may be put on a Zero T or 0T tax code, which could mean you’re taxed more than you should be. You may be entitled to get your money back, but it may take some time, and you might need to contact HMRC directly.
If you work overtime you will either get paid extra or, for those at grade/range 6 and above, get time off in lieu.
Overtime is usually paid at a rate of a time and a half for people working over 37 hours a week, and double time on Sunday. The extra pay is paid monthly with your normal salary.
How much you’re paid depends on your terms and conditions. Use the links below to find out more information:
You will get a P45 when you leave the Council, which contains your earnings and tax code details for you to take to your next employer or benefit agency.
Your P45 can be viewed and downloaded from your Epay account which remains active after you leave (it will not be posted).
If you are leaving the Council, please remember to change the email address on your Epay account to a personal one before leaving to ensure that you get an email notification when your P45 is available.
