What is the meaning of Payroll?
In simple terms, payroll is the list of employees who are employed at a company. Typically, salary is paid in 12 equal instalments throughout the year, with workers paid directly to their bank account, therefore payroll identifies the employees and the total amount of wages each of them earns.
How is Payroll managed?
In the UK, payroll is managed and occurs via Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and the Pay As You Earn (PAYE) system. With these bodies comes a whole host of legal requirements that businesses must stick to in order to be compliant and law-abiding. If they don’t, they could face huge fines and penalties, which makes managing payroll a hugely important part of any company.
Make sure you submit relevant Payroll
As an employer, you normally have to operate PAYE as part of your payroll. You do not need to register for PAYE if none of your employees are paid £123 or more a week, get expenses and benefits, have another job or get a pension. However, you must keep payroll records.
It is essential for businesses to submit relevant payroll information to HMRC on the day before they pay their employees. To record this data businesses must make a full payment submission (FPS). The payroll process can also include tracking hours worked by employees, and must calculate tax, National Insurance contributions, any other deductions and businesses must issue employees with a payslip.
Penalties may occur if you fail to submit Payroll
Failure to submit an FPS each month will incur a penalty, which is increased the more employees a business has. You can also receive a fine if you don’t submit an Employer Payment Summary (EPS) when you don’t pay any employees in a tax month.
Be mindful of Payroll errors
You can also get penalties if HMRC discover careless or deliberate errors in your FPS. These inaccuracies are common for businesses who manage their own payroll, due to distraction with other tasks or lack of experience in corporate finances. With the right payroll management, companies will be able to focus on the growth of their business and have peace of mind that their finances are sound.
