Online Payslip

Paper payslips were replaced with online payslips, for all staff other than Operational and Trades staff, from April 2014.  Online P60s were introduced in April 2015.

 Online payslips and P60s provide several advantages to staff and the University, including greater security and convenience.  They are accessible quickly and easily from any computer, on- and off-campus, by going to the Finance tab within PEGASUS and clicking ‘Online payslips and P60s’.

The online payslips and P60s contain exactly the same information as paper payslips and P60s would. If required, you can save or print your online payslip or P60 for future reference, although payslips and P60s will remain accessible as long as you continue to be a member of staff.  Payslips dating back to April 2011 are available.  P60s are available from tax year 2011/12 onwards.

For further details, please refer to Online Payslips - Frequently Asked Questions.
