A payroll number can be found in the top right hand corner of a payslip. It consists of a six digit number.
HM Revenue and Customs may also request an employee's payroll number for any enquiries.
A payroll number is only issued to a new employee who has signed a contract offer and satisfied the Asylum and Immigration Act documentation for the Human Resources.
This number should be quoted on all correspondence, timesheets and queries relating to the Salaries Office.
Since April 2005, payroll numbers are issued by Human Resources. These all begin with a 6_ _ _ _ _ and are given out in numerical order.
