Select wisely, and it will save you time and money – and build goodwill with your staff as they feel confident that there are never any mistakes in their payroll calculations.

Follow our straightforward steps for staying in control:

1. Register your business with your local tax office and ensure your payroll number appears on all your documents submitted to HMRC.

2. Record your employees’ data – not only names and addresses, but also National Insurance numbers, tax deductions, holidays, overtime, and days off sick.

3. Update your payroll info regularly to protect yourself as an employer.

4. Set up an archive – employee records need to be kept for several years – consider how you will store this personal info, securely.

5. Make sure your staff complete all necessary tax forms and return them to HMRC.
