We collect information each year to ensure all employees are paid correctly from the beginning of the new school year. The Start of Year screens open in Novopay Online on Wednesday, 9 December 2020.

If this is your first time doing Start of Year, or you haven't done one recently, there is a step-by-step process will be a handy reminder.
