What is happening and why?
Due to Single Touch Payroll and the new Government Security requirements, all users of e-PayDay® Payroll Software MUST log in to the software itself with a Username and Password from Version 18.20. User Access Accounts are required for Audit Logging which is mandatory under this new legislation. Auditing was originally introduced from Series 12, by starting with your Company not automatically loading when e-PayDay® is opened.

What is a User Access Account?
