Payroll in the UK is processed through the Pay As You Earn (PAYE) tax system. It's your responsibility as an employer to accurately report how much your employees earn, and any deductions, to Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC).
You'll need to process payroll prior to your employees' payday, this is usually once a month. If you're a medium-large enterprise, our payroll software and outsourced payroll services uncomplicate UK payroll, meaning that you can focus on your bottom line.
In the UK, it's a legal requirement to keep your payroll records for 3 years (from the end of the tax year). If you destroy or lose your records, or they're found to be inaccurate, you could receive a fine from HMRC.
Payroll service costs will vary depending on the size and complexity of your organisation. The larger your business, the more employees payroll have to process and the more your payroll services will cost.
In general, businesses are charged a fee per employee processed per month (PEPM), or per payday, depending on your payday frequency.
