Your employer duties start as soon as you employ someone. You must be registered as an employer with HMRC and be registered for payroll prior to the first payday. As an employer you have a duty to report your employees’ earnings to HMRC and deduct any PAYE or National Insurance contributions due. These employer duties also include ensuring that statutory payments for sickness, maternity, paternity, adoption, shared parental leave and parental bereavement pay are paid, reported, and recorded correctly.
Under the Pensions Act 2008, every employer in the UK must put certain staff into a workplace pension scheme and contribute towards it. This is called ‘automatic enrolment’. If you employ at least one person you are an employer and you have certain legal duties, such as making a Declaration of Compliance to the Pensions Regulator.
Pamela felt that Family Payroll was a natural next step to be able to support families on their journey of becoming and being an employer. Pamela teamed up with her now business partner, Karen who is a part-qualified accountant and an Associate Member of Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals. Already knowing the client, they both feel it makes the continued journey to payroll for the client a personable and first-class service. It really is an end-to-end service for families.
Family Payroll can deal with all aspects of payroll with prices starting at £17 per month or £204 per year.
