National Living Wage

From 1 April 2016, the Government is introducing the National Living Wage, which offers a premium rate on top of the current National Minimum Wage.

If you have employees who are 25 or over and not in their first year of an apprenticeship, from
1st April 2016 you must pay them at least £7.20 an hour.

Note: Employers who don't comply with the national minimum wage are subject to automatic financial penalties. Even if you mistakenly underpay employees, you'll have to pay the penalty. The penalties range between £100 and £5,000 and in the most serious cases, you could also face an unlimited fine.

HMRC to Issue Payroll Late Filing Penalties from October 2014

Penalties for the new RTI (Real Time Information) payroll scheme will be introduced from October 2014, so it is essential that RTI returns are sent in to HMRC on time.

Penalties will be issued by HMRC if a submission is not made either on or before the date that you pay your employees.

The late filing penalty you will receive is based on the number of employees within your PAYE scheme shown in the table below: 

Number of Employee’s
Monthly Penalty
1 to 9
10 to 49
50 to 249
250 or more

As part of our payroll service we make sure that all submissions are made to HMRC on time (as we have done since RTI started in April 2013), so there is no need to worry.

However If you currently manage your own payroll please get in touch to discuss how we can help run your PAYE scheme and remove some of the stress from being an employer.
