>Easter Holiday
Please note our offices will be closed over the Easter Holiday on the following days.

Friday 3rd April 2015
Monday 6th April 2015

We are closed as the banking system is closed. Therefore, giant is not able to process any payments. If you are due to be paid on the days when we are closed, we will pay you the next working day as this is when the banking system reopens and payments can be made.

If you require funds prior to the Easter Bank Holidays, you can request an advance. We will be open until 7pm on Thursday 2nd April but advance requests must be received by 5pm and are not automatically approved as certain conditions apply. Advances on salary incur a fee for same day transfer and administration costs. We will be processing a second payroll on Thursday 2nd April, as we currently do on a Friday. If we have received and allocated cleared funds by 12pm on Thursday 2nd April, you will be included in payroll that afternoon. Please refer to the FAQ section of your portal for further information regarding advances.

When sending in your expense receipts, please ensure you take into consideration that no Royal Mail deliveries will be made on the days we are closed. As per our expenses policy, your receipts will be processed within 3 working days of us receiving them. Your Expense Tracker will show when your expense claims have been authorised.

We hope you enjoy the upcoming long weekend!

> Year End
The new Tax Year starts on Monday 6th April 2015. Please note that payments made to you after 6th April will take into account statutory tax changes. These changes may affect the tax and net pay values on your first payslip after the new tax year starts.

Your P60 will be available for you to view on your employee portal by 31st May 2015. It will be located in the "Payslips" section of your employee portal.

> Fuel Receipt Rates:
We would like to inform you that the fuel rates issued by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) are changing. Fuel rates are reviewed quarterly by HMRC and the new rates will apply from 1st April 2015. Please note that mileage claims entered onto the system from 1st April will have the new rates applied regardless of when the fuel was purchased & travel undertaken. A separate email will be sent to you to confirm the new rates.
