Payroll for Households
Our HouseHold Payroll Service
If you’re looking to employ a nanny, carer, family PA or other person in your home there’s a good chance that you’re going to have to pay them through a payroll. As a home owner that’s going to feel like a big job which you might not know how to do. But for us, it’s business as usual as we specialise in payroll for households.
After discussing who you’re employing, and what they’re doing for you, we’ll identify if a payroll is required. We will talk to you about whether the person working in your home is considered an employee, and what is needed to ensure you’re a compliant and lawful employer. We’ll send our Letter of Engagement and GDPR Data Processor Agreement to you which will lay out what we’ll do for you and when, and you’ll know what you’ll need to do to make sure your payroll runs smoothly.
We’ll also agree a plan to enable your payroll to be set up in the easiest way possible, and agree some dates for things to be done by so you’ll know exactly when things will be completed.
We can take care of registering you as an employer with HMRC, and we’ll discuss Auto Enrolment Workplace Pensions and help you choose a scheme that will fit with your circumstances. We can offer help and support with things like National Minimum Wage and holiday monitoring so you’re fully prepared and protected. We’ll also make sure that you have a clear idea of the cost of things like Employers National Insurance and Pension Contributions, so that there are no financial shocks once your employee joins you.
We understand that our household customers are very different to our business customers, and we’ll make sure that we take time to explain things to you so that you understand what’s being done on your behalf.
