Payroll / RTI services

Our payroll bureau offers a confidential service aimed at reducing the administrative burden for our clients. With HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) approved software and professionally qualified staff, we are able to assist with all our clients’ needs from hiring staff, establishing a payroll scheme to filing statutory returns.

The bureau is fully Real Time Information (RTI) aligned, making Full Payment and Employment Payment Summaries (FPS & EPS) for all clients.

The Smith & Williamson Payroll Bureau is fully licensed by Bank Automated Credit System (BACS) and as such further reduces the onus on clients to make time-critical salary and Pay As You Earn (PAYE) payments.

Are you getting ready for auto-enrolment?

Have you heard about auto-enrolment? It is the term for the automatic enrolment of employees into workplace pension schemes and it will affect all businesses. Automatic enrolment of employees into workplace pension schemes is now well underway. By 2018, every UK employer will have been brought on board, with employee and employer contributions being paid.

Though 2018 may seem like a long way off, there is a lot to do - so in order that employers meet their requirements for auto-enrolment, they should start planning now.

We can help your business prepare for auto-enrolment compliance, providing help and guidance throughout the whole process; from helping you assess the cost for your company and providing assistance in setting up or reviewing your pension arrangements, to managing your payroll function so that you are fully auto-enrolment compliant.
