Employing someone for the first time: a tax and accounting perspective

Thursday 15th October 2015

There are many things to think about when you are employing people for the first time. If you don’t have a full understanding of the requirements this could result in penalties and interest.

Hart Shaw Chartered Accountants in association with Business Sheffield delivered a workshop which highlighted the main questions that a business needs to ask itself when employing people for the first time such as:

  • When do I need to tell HMRC I am employing people
  • What do I have to tell HMRC
  • What are my ongoing reporting requirements
  • Do I need an accountant to prepare my payroll
  • How do I pay my staff
  • What is the national minimum wage
  • Can I pay my employees expenses and benefits
  • What is Real Time Information
  • What is Auto enrolment

This event was delivered by Carla Davis, Tax Manager & VAT Adviser and Aaron Alcock, Independent Financial Adviser of Hart Shaw Chartered Accountants.
