The Bambury & Co App

As a firm we are constantly looking for ways we can improve the service we offer, and so we are proud to announce the launch of our brand-new App.  It’s completely free of charge to anyone and is available for iPhones, iPads and Android devices.

The App will give you access to key accounting data, in real time, whenever you need it, as well as a suite of powerful calculators.  It brings all the financial tools you use together into one easy to use app.

Save hours with these four powerful features:

  • Quick access to Cloud portals, tax data, calculators and more
  • Easy logging of you receipts with the powerful Receipt Manager
  • Track automatic mileage for business and personal trips with the automatic GPS Mileage Tracker
  • Keep updated on key tax updates and more via rapid Push Notifications sent direct to your device

Simply download the App by clicking on this link: https://app.bambury.info

Enjoy!

Please pass the link on to your colleagues at work, business associates, family, friends, etc. If you find the App useful, then I’m sure they will too.

Bambury & Co signs up with BrightPay

The plain fact of the matter is that email is not a secure method of transmitting data, especially the sensitive information found on payslips. And with data security of paramount importance to individuals and businesses, regulators are now cracking down on breaches of data protection.  Since 25 May 2018 the UK has had to apply the new EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).  These will not be affected by Brexit.

Under GDPR not only are we responsible for how we hold and manage our clients’ payroll data, but also our payroll clients are responsible for how that payroll data is transmitted to their employees in the form of payslips, P60s, etc.

So we have opted to go for a self-service portal that can be accessed by both employees and employers.  Employees will be able to log in to their portal using their PC, Mac, tablet or smartphone and access and retrieve payslips and other documentation.  Employers can access an additional level of data.

We will shortly be writing to our payroll clients with further information about BrightPay.  Parallel testing of BrightPay with our current payroll software, Moneysoft, will take place in February and March with a view to going live with BrightPay on 1 April.
