Q: Do I need to have a payroll scheme?
A: If any of the people you are paying within your business are classed as employees by HMRC, you will need to have a payroll scheme in place. This is to make sure that they are being taxed properly as you will be responsible for the tax and National Insurance contributions that you deduct from them and pay to HMRC. If you’re not sure whether you need a payroll scheme and whether the people who work for you are classed as employees or self-employed, we can advise you further. If you do need a payroll scheme, we can administer it for you and pay your staff members by BACS.
Q: Can I benefit personally from having a payroll scheme?
A: It’s possible that it might be more tax efficient for you to pay yourself a salary and dividends as you can benefit from the tax-free personal allowance. We will offer you personalised advice.
Q: Do I need to use PAYE?
A: You don’t if the people who work for you are classed as self-employed as they will be responsible for paying their own tax and National Insurance contributions.
