Payroll and PAYE Returns
Administering your payroll can be time consuming and burdensome, diverting energy and resources from the core activities of your business.
The task is made all the more difficult by the growing complexity of taxation and employment legislation and the accompanying regime of penalties for non-compliance.
We can relieve you of this burden by providing a comprehensive and confidential payroll service, including:
- Customised payslips
- Administration of PAYE, national insurance, statutory sick pay, statutory maternity pay, etc
- Completion of statutory forms, including year end returns, to issue to your employees and submit to HM Revenue & Customs
- Summaries and analyses of staff costs
- Administration of incentive schemes, bonuses, and ex-gratia and termination payments.
Even if you have only a few employees, you could make savings by engaging us to administer your payroll.
VAT can be the bane of everyone affected by it.
The complex regime of regulations imposes a tremendous administrative burden on businesses.
With the rate being so high, mistakes in calculating VAT can be costly - and the rigid system of penalties and interest charges for mistakes and the late submission of returns adds to that burden.
We can make sure you are collecting the right amounts for each transaction, and ensure that you make payments and file returns correctly and on time.
We can supply you with straightforward templates to help you keep on top of your record keeping or take on the role for you ourselves.
