About the Company: Founded in 2017 by Emil Hagbarth Rasmussen and Jonas Bøgh Larsen, when it comes to the often-painful process of payroll, Pento's cloud-based payroll software automates everything from tax calculations to HMRC payments and integrates with tools like Xero, letting you run payroll for any business in minutes. Pento passes on the error-prone process of plodding through spreadsheets, pouring over PDFs, and proofing emails, etc., and provides employers with a set of tools, real-time calculations, and overall improved transparency to get the job done. The startup offers clients including Starling Bank, Pleo, Cuvva, and Honest Burgers, a host of time-saving features with real-time payroll calculations, automated payments, HMRC integration, salary templates, and payslip distributions, to name a few, all within a 100% GDPR compliant platform.
