Payments to staff

2018 Financial and other Notable Dates 

This document shows details of the payroll schedule.

Salaries close date is the latest date that bulk input documents such as overtime sheets, additional fees, change of bank details and expense claims are required at the payroll office.

If instructions are received after the Salaries Close date, payment cannot be guaranteed.  However, if an exceptionally urgent payment is required and current work commitments allow, the case will receive sympathetic consideration.

In order for the payroll office to process documents efficiently within the given timescales, staff should ensure that they include their staff number on all documentation.  This number can be found on the top line of each payslip.  Failure to include this number may lead to delays in processing.

Expenses that are processed online through proactis

Once the expense has been registered on Proactis a claim number is generated.  The claim should be printed and all receipts relating to that expense should be attached to the claim and given to your finance budget holder to check and authorise on the system.  The form and receipts should then be returned to the payroll office.  Receipts received by 4pm on Friday will be paid to claimants the following Friday.

Re-imbursement for the cost of the fee for application for permanent UK residence status

UEB has agreed to a scheme to reimburse overseas staff (EU and non-EU) with the cost of the fee for application for UK permanent residence (PR) status, or for the government’s new ‘settled’ status when it becomes available in autumn 2018. The PR application currently costs £65; settled status is expected to cost no more than a British passport (currently £75.50).

Eligibility for the scheme is as follows:

  • Any member of staff who has successfully applied for Permanent Residence since the date of the referendum (23rd June 2016);
  • Any member of staff who successfully applies for settled status when this becomes available in autumn 2018, until 31 December 2020.

In respect of non-EU staff who may apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) in the UK, the University will re-imburse up to the cost of a PR application only.

Please note that to be eligible for PR or settled status it is necessary to have been resident in the UK for 5 years prior to making the application. Please see the government information here for more details: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/status-of-eu-nationals-in-the-uk-what-you-need-to-know.

Information on ILR is available from: https://www.gov.uk/settle-in-the-uk

The University reimbursement scheme is for members of staff only and does not include family members who are not also University employees. It does not extend to reimbursement of fees for naturalisation as a British citizen.

Please note that this is a taxable benefit, however the University will ‘gross up’ your payment in order to ensure you receive the full cost of the application fee.

The procedure for claiming the fee reimbursement is as follows:

  1. The member of staff provides confirmation of PR/settled status (dated between 23 June 2016 and 31 December 2020) to his/her Head of School/Budget Centre.
  2. The Head of School/Budget Centre completes the form, attaches the confirmation of PR/settled status and sends to the Payroll Office.
  3. Payroll will arrange payment and charge the account provided.
