Payroll for STARTUPS And New Employers

And New

6In recent years, there has been an increase in people looking to start their own businesses, often with a desire to have more independence and control over their lives as well as a better work life balance.

Some of these businesses may require staff from the outset, for example those in the service sector, whilst other start ups will grow to a certain size where the solo entrepreneur can no longer do everything in the business effectively, which is where they may need to consider employing staff for the first time. Either way, for many startups looking for staff or those seeking to hire employees for the first time, the assistance that will be required will be similar.

As a first-time employer, we’ll give you as much or as little help you need. After discussing your business so that we can get to know you, we’ll send our Letter of Engagement and GDPR Data Processor Agreement to you. This lays 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 your business as an employer with HMRC, and we’ll discuss Auto Enrolment Workplace Pension requirements and help you choose a scheme that will fit with your business. 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 when you’re ready to pay your employee for the first time.
