Calculating their wages is probably the only easy part of paying your Staff.

You will have to become an expert in all facets of the Inland revenue's ever changing (well annually anyway) regulations, allowances etc.

Many accountants offer a service that will handle the lot. Its deductible, they will not charge to check that part of your books at the end of the year, and if there is a horlicks. You can blame them.

wee eddies' advice is very good. I set up a new company 4 months ago and my accountant's payroll team deal with all aspects of wages, NI, PAYE etc. With a small company, unless you have the time or inclination to keep up to speed with all the various tax, budget and legislation changes, I would suggest it is more cost effective to use this service. It also means you can spend ,more of your valuable time earning money ! :)

BTW, I recommend Sage Instant Accounts for all other aspects of dealing with accounts. I have learnt how to use it in very short time frame and it is good VFM.

I'd like to echo Wags praise if Sage Instabt Accounts and the Sage Payroll is also excellent; but the thing that swings it for me, and a number of others I know, is the excellence of their helpline.
