This week we’re celebrating National Payroll Week – a celebration of the impact that payroll has on the UK economy, through the collection of income tax and National Insurance. 

Making sure your staff are paid properly and on time is one of the most important tasks for an employer. Your staff are the heart and soul of your business, and getting payroll right should be a top priority. 

But with so much that goes into payroll calculations and deductions, how can you be sure you’re getting it right? 

There’s a lot to think about – income tax, National Insurance, statutory payments, pension contributions. Employers need an easy to use solution that they can rely on.
