Frequently asked questions

We offer a comprehensive suite of payroll services to meet the needs of businesses of all sizes, including:

  • Issuing payslips and P60s
  • Payroll processing and management
  • Processing new starters and leavers
  • Submitting Real Time Information (RTI) to HMRC
  • Ensuring compliance with current payroll legislation
  • Managing employee benefits and pension contributions
  • Handling statutory payments (sick pay, maternity/paternity pay)
  • Calculating and deducting taxes (PAYE) and National Insurance contributions

If you are employing people for the first time, you need to:

  • Register as an employer with HMRC
  • Set up a payroll system to manage employee payments and deductions
  • Check your employees’ right to work in the UK
  • Obtain and record your employees’ details (e.g., name, address, National Insurance number)
  • Provide employees with a written statement of employment
  • Ensure you are compliant with workplace pension regulations
  • Decide how often to pay your employees (weekly, monthly, etc.)
  • Calculate the correct amount of tax and National Insurance to deduct
  • Submit payroll information to HMRC each payday using RTI

Before you pay a new employee, you need to have the following information:

  • Full name
  • Address
  • Date of birth
  • National Insurance number
  • P45 form from their previous employer (if applicable)
  • Employment start date
  • Bank account details for payment
  • Tax code and student loan status (if applicable)
  • Right to work documentation (e.g., passport, visa)
  • Details of any pension schemes they are enrolled in

If your employee does not have a National Insurance number, they should apply for one as soon as possible. You can still pay them while they wait for their number, but you must ensure they have the right to work in the UK.

Use the temporary National Insurance number format (TN + date of birth + gender) for your payroll records until they receive their official number. Encourage your employee to contact HMRC or the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) to apply for their National Insurance number.

Yes, if you are paying yourself a salary as a company director or secretary, you still need to register as an employer with HMRC. This applies even if you are the only employee. You will need to operate PAYE to deduct and pay Income Tax and National Insurance contributions to HMRC.

We can process your company’s payroll promptly and efficiently. Once we have received all the necessary information and documentation, we can typically set up and run your payroll within a few business days.

For ongoing payroll, we ensure timely processing according to your designated pay schedule (weekly, bi-weekly, monthly). Our team is committed to ensuring accuracy and compliance with all payroll regulations.
