Don’t worry about the burden of hiring staff, keeping track of holidays and making sure that you are compliant with HMRC and the Pensions Regulator.
Payroll is more than the calculation of wages and salaries. HMRC are cracking down on on IR35 legislation by making sure that employers are assessing their workforce to ensure that they fall in the realms of employment and not self employment. Many employers will want to avoid the cost of PAYE and national insurance by paying someone as self employed but little know that they are contravening the IR35 legislation and could find themselves in hot water.
Why is Payroll important?
Payroll is important so that you are aware of your obligations as an employer and what deductions to make to your employees.

Do I need a Payroll Scheme?
If you pay employees over the lower earnings threshold of £113 then you must run a proper payroll scheme and report to HMRC before every pay period. If you pay employees less than this per week you will not need a payroll scheme or have to report to HMRC. However, it is still good practice to operate one in case at any one time you pay over this amount. If you are a sole director on a the minimum directors salary you must run a scheme to report to HMRC to protect your National Insurance Contributions. Directors salaries are equivalent currently £157 per week.
Payroll schemes are also an essential part of the business finances. It helps tracks holidays and statutory payments such as student loan deductions, SSP, SMP, SPP and SAP – please see our jargon buster page.
