Payroll

Running your own business was a pleasure until the day you took on your first employee and became an unpaid tax collector. This is when you found out what red tape was all about. Payroll is an important and integral part of running a business – without contented employees, things can soon sour and issues quickly develop. Yet getting people paid on time (and at the right amount) is only one piece of the complex payroll jigsaw puzzle. There is tax, national insurance and pensions to factor in too – all elements which need an expert hand to ensure that they’re accurate and complete.

Time is money and payroll is complicated

Let us take the strain away from you and let you get on with running and growing your business without the hassle of getting your head around the intricate ins and outs of PAYE, national insurance and pensions. Payroll is complicated and has to be done on time – and you as the employer are responsible for any mistakes made. The time involved in setting up payroll each and every month is time you could be spending growing and developing your business, running the day to day and taking care of tasks you simply can’t outsource. Let us take care of the things you can.

Ensure employees are paid on time, every time

Non-payment of wages, even just once, can be a huge issue for your staff – and for you. Yet when you take on payroll yourself, you have to remember each month to make the necessary preparations in order to ensure that everybody gets paid the appropriate wages at the right time. The stress and pressure involved in this – not to mention the time – all takes you away from running your business and instead leaves you shackled to your desk with a calculator and a mountain of paperwork.

Avoid costly tax bills and keep HMRC happy

As the employer, you are fully responsible for any mistakes made in calculating somebody’s pay and the tax they owe. Let us take on the responsibility for you and ensure that your payroll is consistently accurate and completed on time each month – with the added security of our expertise and ongoing advice. We will also make sense of P60s and P45s so you don’t have to – offering guidance in the cases of individual employees who may need extra advice or specialist support.
