Quickpaye can Simplify Pension Management with Integrated Payroll Services

Quickpaye can Simplify Pension Management with Integrated Payroll Services

In the dynamic landscape of business operations, staying compliant with evolving regulations is paramount. A payroll provider can be a game-changer in ensuring a smooth and compliant process, especially when it comes to managing pension contributions.

Integrating pension contributions into payroll processes streamlines the entire system. This means that contributions are seamlessly deducted from employees’ salaries, eliminating the need for manual intervention. Furthermore, these providers handle the intricate tax relief calculations, alleviating the burden on your finance team.

One of the significant advantages of utilizing payroll services is their commitment to staying abreast of the latest regulations. As regulations surrounding pension schemes are subject to change, relying on experts in the field ensures that your business remains compliant. From assessing eligibility to automatically enrolling eligible employees, payroll providers manage the entire spectrum, including the intricate processes of opt-ins and opt-outs, in accordance with the latest regulations.

In essence, integrating pension contributions into your payroll system not only streamlines operations but also guarantees compliance, allowing you to focus on your core business while leaving the intricacies of pension management in capable hands.

Here at Quickpaye, we process monthly pension maintenance, sending out any necessary correspondence, and will also upload your pension file for you to the relevant pension provider.  We deal with Aviva, People’s Pension, Nest, etc to name but a few.

Please contact us with any of your queries, as our team member Mala, is our auto enrolment expert!

Is your job sexy or glamorous?

Is your job sexy or glamorous?

Many of us have jobs that are not sexy or glamorous, and Payroll is definitely in the unsexy category but it is also essential.

Therefore most of the time, if your payroll team gets it right, it goes very unnoticed, but when they get it wrong, oh boy do we know it. Receiving the wrong salary payment affects people’s day to day lives, their ability to pay their mortgages and rent are brought into question and payroll are the first people in the line of fire. 

That’s why we work hard to ensure we are fully up to date with all the latest Government schemes (let’s face it furlough was a word the UK didn’t really use until last year) HMRC policies, Pension changes and every little element that can cause a possible payroll discrepancy. 

So when you use Quickpaye you know that behind every payslip, there sits a person or team who is always in pursuit of knowledge and new legislation whilst battling ever changing software and technology!

The Quickpaye team have worked tirelessly all the way through the pandemic, trying to keep everyone paid accurately and on time and therefore as happy as possible.  

So to my team and everyone out there who runs payroll, a big shout out Well Done!  We made it through!

Kind regards

Important update Furlough and payroll matters

Important update Furlough and payroll matters

During the Coronavirus epidemic of 2020 the Quickpaye team have been working hard all through Lockdown, getting all payrolls sent out on time, as well as helping our clients claim from HMRC for their Furloughed workers.

Initially we were totally overwhelmed with work, since the Furlough scheme was as new to us as to the rest of the country, after all, before the virus, who in the UK had ever heard of being Furloughed?

Nonetheless, we carried on wading through, the claims were not as easy as one would have hoped, since we also had to be fully authorised by our clients, and of course, not all of them had given us this, but under these new circumstances, they needed this to happen asap! Which was not always easy!

But in true Quickpaye spirit, we soldiered on and thankfully, we are nearly there, having claimed for 100% of our clients who asked for our help.

If you have had a problem with your payroll, or with making a claim for your Furloughed employees, please give us a call, we are here to help you! Having now had the opportunity to work with HMRC on numerous claims we are very well placed to help all businesses.

To make it easier to understand the new rulings, please note the following:

The scheme will close to anyone who hasn’t been furloughed for 3 weeks by 30 June.

 Rules will be changing from 1st July

  1. You will have more flexibility and be able to start bringing back employees to work part time and hours to suit your business
  2. From 1st August, you will need to contribute towards the wages costs of your Furloughed employees, until the scheme ends on 31 October.
  3. AUGUST – employers will then have to pay the ER NICS contributions and the pension contributions
  4. SEPTEMBER – employers will have to pay 10% of the furloughed wages bill plus the ER NICS contributions and the pension contributions
  5. OCTOBER – employers will have to pay 20% of the furloughed wages bill plus the ER NICS contributions and the pension contributions

Fortunately for SMALL EMPLOYERS, all or some of their Employer NIC bills will be covered by the Employment Allowance so that will significantly help and they will not be so impacted by the new rulings.

Please get in touch if you require any assistance or guidance.

Small business owners/Directors, working by themselves or just employing one other person can find Payroll and accountancy costs, eye wateringly expensive – so Michelle at Quickpaye has created a Payroll plan for such a business.

The plan includes:

  • Payroll with NO MONTHLY CHANGES and NO pension for one or two people will be charged annually @ £300 for up to two people (If any pension there will be a small additional charge)

  • Straightforward personal tax returns @  £140

  • Small business bookkeeping packages start from £100 per month depending on volume. If extremely small business then quarterly bookkeeping can be an option. (with all bookkeeping Quickpaye need to assess first before pricing accurately)

If you would like to find out your annual costs please email Michelle Bourne michelle@quickpaye.co.uk
