The Chancellor has announced new support for employers from 1st November after the current Job Retention Scheme ends on 31st October.  Yet another challenge for payroll providers just when we thought we might get a couple of months breather before the Job Retention Bonus after the end of January and the end of the tax year in March! The Job Support Scheme will run for six months and is designed to…
We thought furlough was challenging but flexible furlough is proving even more so! As a payroll bureau working with businesses employing between 2 and 50 staff, furlough has been important for many of our clients during lockdown.  It has been interesting to see how…
As bookkeepers one of the many skills we need is good attention to detail.  So its probably not a surprise that it is one of the skills I list when advertising a bookkeeper position.  Attention to detail has several meanings but includes  being thorough and accurate.

Although lockdown has restricted business for many, as a payroll provider to a large number of businesses I know that some businesses have been taking on new employees over this period. There will also be individuals who have used this time to start their own business and will be planning for the costs involved in taking on their first employee as the business grows.  So if you are a potential new employer here are some points you need to think about along with the costs you need to plan for.…

If your holiday year runs from January to December you will soon be calculating holiday entitlement for your staff for 2020.  Here are some facts to be aware of and to ensure you calculate it correctly, particularly for those who work part-time.…
Payroll is easy isn't it?  There is plenty of software out there that you can use to run your payroll which will tell you how much to pay your employees.  So why do employers still get their employees' pay wrong and don't notice that it is wrong?  Because, as with everything, the information you get out…
