Payroll & Accounting newsletter, October 2011

Welcome to the October edition of Sargent-Disc's Payroll & Accounting newsletter. We are delighted to announce the launch of our new and improved payroll platform SD Online 2.0. Building on the core functionality of our existing service it offers a range of new benefits to our payroll customers. Using our industry pay scales,now available in SD Online 2.0, we have also produced an insight article looking at the impact of age and gender in the film industry. We hope you find it interesting.

SD Online 2.0 payroll launches with Pay Scales

SD Online 2.0 payroll is now available and brings with it a number of key new features and benefits. These features include; an advanced used interface, industry pay scales, multi-platform functionality and improved reporting and analysis.

Age and gender in the UK film industry

Amidst the discussions in the UK around pensions, our ageing society, and the steep rise in retirement age for women, we have undertaken an analysis of age and gender in the film industry. Using Sargent-Disc's industry experience and pay scales data we investigate the impact on pay.
