Some employers have many staff on the national minimum wage. This varies with the age of staff and has recently been increased. Quite apart from the damage to staff morale when they realise they are on less than the legal minimum, a company can find itself in all sorts of trouble with the authorities if the correct rates are not paid.
The minimum wage is not the only issue which affects employees' pay. The employer needs to understand the various options for retirement provision as well as having an encyclopaedic knowledge of earnings attachments and tax credits. Many employers find themselves wondering if there is an easier way to do things. Equally, many employers know the simple answer is to get an expert to do it.
Most businesses cannot afford an in-house expert. However our staff members only do PAYE as we are a payroll bureau. You can have our services at a fraction of the cost and there are additional benefits such as management information at no extra cost. We'll be happy to provide you with a complete payroll solution.
