Being an employer can bring a lot of stress and headaches. Government red tape certainly doesn’t make the process any easier. There are so many legal steps you must undertake before you even decide to employ someone:
- First of all, register as an employer with HMRC
- Confirm whether the employee can legally work in the UK
- Carry out appropriate DBS checks, if necessary
- Ensure that they will be paid the minimum wage
- Organise payroll software
- Contract a lawyer to develop an employment contract
- Organising employers liability insurance
- Setting up a workplace pension scheme, when necessary
These are all steps that take your vital time and focus away from directing and developing your own business.
Why Quick Rebates?
Fully HMRC Compliant
Efficient & Effective
Maintaining staff records is not a fun task, particularly when you have many other important business duties to perform. Especially when there are so many rules and regulations in place.
At QuickRebates we have a saying:
“You do what you do best, let us do what we do best”
What we mean by this, is that you shouldn’t be spending your activities minding payroll when you could be sourcing new contracts, developing business strategies, or managing current projects. This also means that you should leave cumbersome and time consuming administrative payroll tasks to professionals like ourselves, that deal with this on a day-in day-out basis.
What Do You Need?
For current employees, simply details of hours worked, bonuses, holiday days and sick days. We will calculate the rest.
Do You Send Payslips?
We always issue electronic payslips. If you, or your employees require paper payslips, these can be organised for a small fee.
What About New Employees?
For new employees we would need basic details such as name, address, date of birth and National Insurance number. This information allows us to register the employee on the HMRC record and confirm the Tax codes.
What Are The Costs?
As every employers requirements are different, from payroll administration to drafting employment contracts. We suggest you get in touch for a no obligation quote.
Late Filing Penalties
Late filing penalties for Employer monthly and annual returns are issued by HMRC with ease, in fact they are automatic issued. Furthermore, the more you are late with these forms, the fines increase exponentially.
HMRC are quite strict with Employers returns. Not only are the forms to be returned on time, but they should also be accurate. Penalties can be issued not only for late returns, but also for inaccurate submissions.
Don’t let yourself be bogged down with managing the cumbersome payroll requirements and outsource this task to QuickRebates.
