Payroll Services

The objective for payroll has always been simple – pay your employees accurately and on time. It has historically been seen as a low risk function where issues rarely trouble the higher levels of management. As a result, it may not have not received a great deal of attention in your organisation.

The introduction of Real-time Reporting (RTR) on 1 January 2019 increases the pressure on all businesses. To manage their employment tax risk, they need to assess and evolve their payroll function. RTR intensifies the challenges facing employers in managing payroll compliance. The risks associated with non-compliance are also greater than ever before.

Employment taxes globally are now the largest source of Government income, contributing on average 38% of the total tax take. Tax authorities now see organisations’ payroll functions as their primary tax collection agent. This puts a burden of responsibility on employers. RTR adds another level of responsibility, increasing the onus on employers further.

“Our focus is not simply on the compliance aspects of the payroll process, but making sure that the payroll function has strong governance and controls supported by the right technology”
