How Another Answer Can Help with Payroll

You will gain from:

  • Advice about payroll costs, calculations and deadlines

  • Help with completion of legal forms for both employees and HMRC

In the Construction Industry? Have subcontractors? You may be required to use CIS. If so you will need to deduct amounts from your subcontractors’ payments before paying their invoices. The deductions are paid to HMRC and are counted as advanced payments for the subcontractor’s tax and NI contribution. Don’t worry if this seems confusing, our team can take you through the entire process.

Our team will ensure that both contractors and subcontractors meet the regulations set out in the CIS scheme and keep you up to date with the latest changes in policy which may affect you.

Workplace Pensions

As an employer you are obliged to provide a Workplace Pension Scheme for your employees.

You have a legal duty to automatically enrol all workers above the age of 22 who earn £10,000 or more. Even if they don’t want to be enrolled! They then have the chance to ‘opt out’.

Your employees will normally have 5% of their salary deducted at source before tax, and you as the employer will add a further 3% minimum.
