Your payroll must also operate in compliance with HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) requirements, so that you don’t mistakenly pay less than you should to the taxman.
HMRC carries out compliance checks on employers each year – including looking at their payroll administration – to make sure they are paying the right amount of tax. These checks could result in significant liabilities if innocent mistakes have been made or the complex tax rules around payroll and expenses have been misinterpreted.
HMRC needs to give you only seven days’ notice, by phone or by letter, that it intends to make such a check so it makes sense to ensure that your payroll is HMRC-compliant at all times.
TWP offers a cost-effective, fixed fee PAYE health check service, delivering a thorough review of your payroll policies and procedures that will help to identify potential problems and suggest solutions, to ensure your payroll stays HMRC-compliant and to give you peace of mind.
How does the PAYE health check work?
With our PAYE health check, one of our experts in this specialist area will visit the members of your team to review your policies and procedures on payroll, expenses policy and authorisation and employees’ and directors’ expenses and benefits.
We will then provide a verbal or written report – in a detailed format or as a shorter summary – to identify any existing or potential problems and suggest ways to resolve these issues.
We also provide a comprehensive range of other payroll services, including our cost-effective outsourced payroll bureau, which ensures that your payroll administrative will always be HMRC-compliant.
