Understanding Payroll

If you’re new to payroll, and still wondering whether to adopt payroll software for your business, you’ll probably find the next section useful.

What is Payroll software?

Payroll software is a digital business solution designed to simplify the process of paying employees. KashFlow is cloud-based payroll software which has all the same features as payroll software with the added bonus of it being hosted online.

Using cloud payroll software for a small business has a number of advantages. It can cut down your workload by automatically producing payslips, P45s, P60s and other forms.

It also reduces the room for error by automatically deducting tax and National Insurance Contributions for you and sending tax returns. Further to this, you can automate tasks like year-end reporting anytime, anywhere.

With payroll software, you can schedule recurring payments, either weekly or monthly, to help get your employees paid on time. As KashFlow Payroll supports a wide range of BACS file formats that you can download and feed in to your banking software, you can pay employees automatically too.

How to setup payroll for the first time

If this is your first time hiring someone, then you’ll need to register as an employer with HM Revenue and Customs. Registering as an employer can take up to 6 weeks, and it must be done before the first payday. Note, however, that you can’t register more than 2 months before the first payday.

The majority of employers can register online, which you can do here.

Once you’ve registered, add your employee details into your payroll software and report pay, deductions and other relevant information to HM Revenue and Customs.

Remember to keep a record of this information for at least the legal minimum of 3 years. The information you have to keep includes:

  • How much your employees are paid, and any deductions you’ve made
  • A copy of all reports and payments made to HMRC
  • A record of employee leave and absences
  • Tax code notice
  • Any taxable expenses or benefits claimed
  • Documents relating to a Payroll Giving Scheme, if relevant
