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…
The last six weeks has been the most overwhelming time I have had in the 16 years since I have been in business.  The sheer volume of work created by the current situation which has not only significantly increased the time needed to do payroll four-fold but dealing with the almost continuous telephone calls and emails in that first two weeks from clients who just needed to talk things through and get some advice.  I really enjoy talking to clients…
Those of you who have more than a couple of employees and run your own payroll will probably be finding the current situation a bit of a minefield.  Not only are we starting a new tax year this month with its changes in National Insurance contributions, changes to student loan thresholds, a change to they way holiday is calculated…
Employment allowance can be claimed by business which have a payroll with at least one employee or two directors earning over the secondary threshold.  The £3,000 allowance is set against your Class 1 National Insurance contributions…

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.…
As a business we are not very good at sharing the feedback we get from our clients.  In fact we don't share it at all unless you happen to be looking at our website because you need a bookkeeper or someone to take on your payroll. We have received some fantastic feedback from our clients this year, which we really appreciate so to finish our year off I thought I would share a couple of the testimonials we have received.…
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…
