Payroll healthcheck

Fixed-fee PAYE reviews

An efficient payroll is about much more than keeping your employees happy by paying them on time. It must also comply with HMRC requirements, so you do not mistakenly pay less than you should to the taxman.

HMRC carries out annual compliance checks on employers – including looking at your payroll administration – to ensure you are paying the right amount of tax.

These checks could result in significant charges if innocent mistakes have been made or the complex tax rules around payroll and expenses have been misunderstood or applied in error.
HMRC only needs to give you seven days’ notice, by phone or by letter, that it intends to make such a check, so it makes sense to ensure your payroll is always compliant.

Our payroll team offers a cost-effective, fixed fee PAYE health check service, delivering a thorough review of your payroll policies and procedures to help identify potential problems and suggest solutions.

How does the PAYE health check work?

With our PAYE health check, one of our experts will visit your team to review your policies and procedures on payroll, expenses, and authorisation as well as employees’ and directors’ expenses and benefits.

A detailed written report is then provided to help you identify any existing or potential problems, and suggest ways to resolve any issues that may crop up from our health check.

We also provide a comprehensive range of other payroll services, including our cost-effective outsourced payroll bureau which ensures your payroll will always be HMRC-compliant.

For more information on the PAYE health check or to book in a visit with our experts, contact our payroll team on 01454 619900 or email
