HMRC have told us for several years now that we must file our payroll returns on or before the date the employee is paid.  Most employers have a regular payment date and as a payroll bureau we ensure that we file the return on or before that payment date. But what happens if you forget to or are unable to file a return on the payment date? …
We are often asked this question by business owners taking on their first employee particularly if they are not going to be working many hours.  Employers believe that because they aren't paying their employee very much they don't need to put them on the payroll but that is not necessarily the case.  Or perhaps because they are just taking them on for a trial period of a week or month they think it is a waste of time adding them to the payroll.  Neither of these reasons will be considered by HMRC as an acceptable excuse for not putting your employee on the payroll if it is found later that they should have been.…

Can a business owner do everything?  We would like to think we can but as our business grows inevitably we need help. But what help do we need and where do we get it?…
The VAT Flat Rate scheme is available to businesses with turnover up to £150,000 per annum. It is advantageous to small businesses as the VAT payable to HMRC is calculated as a percentage of gross sales rather than 20% of net sales less 20% of VATable purchases.
