The Employee Portal in Attaché Online provides a number of employee-related features including the Employee Directory and Organisational Chart and "self service" access for employees to manage their personal details (such as name and next of kin information). The area also includes functions to customise your Attaché Online organisation, add new admin users and invite employees to join your organisation. 

For Australian payroll, the Employee Portal also includes payroll functions such as Single Touch Payroll where you submit and manage your STP batches and onboarding for new employees.
