UK payroll is prone to frequent legislative updates. This has been particularly evident in recent years with the introduction of Gender Pay Gap reporting, and numerous changes to tax bands, rates and allowances. All of this has significantly increased the level of burden placed on UK payroll providers. In fact, for many organisations, this increase in payroll complexity combined with considerable time-pressure for payment and revenue filing has brought about an increase in the error rate.
But help is on hand. This collection of UK payroll articles outlines many of HMRC’s latest legislative updates and provides an introduction and overview to the UK’s payroll system as well as advice on how to deal with some of the trickier aspects of UK payroll processing.
