Payroll Administration

Our dedicated payroll department can provide weekly or monthly payroll services, dealing with PAYE, NIC, Statutory Sick Pay, Statutory Maternity Pay, Student Loans, CIS returns and agricultural wages board pay rates.

In April 2013 HMRC introduced Real Time Reporting (“RTI”) of payroll information for every employer to HMRC. This means that each time a payroll is processed an employer is required to file information on-line with HMRC before the employees are paid. Our payroll department will work with you to plan and manage your payroll process in order to ensure that your payroll is processed and your employees are paid in accordance with the RTI rules and timescales.

Our payroll department can process the employer and employee pension contributions under the auto enrolment pension schemes.


VAT (Value Added Tax) is one of the most complex taxes imposed on business and one that many businesses inadvertently overpay or underpay. With a constant stream of detailed changes to the regulations, businesses can find it difficult to ensure they comply.

We provide a cost effective VAT service and work with a wide variety of businesses, providing varying levels of support from general advice to routine quarterly VAT return completion. We have helped many of our clients to reduce VAT assessments and minimise their VAT liabilities, as well as providing peace of mind that your business in VAT compliant.
