Save on payroll costs and keep everyone happy

Payroll Services Yeovil

Are your payroll services up to scratch?

A happy workforce is a productive and motivated one. Paying your staff on time, calculating and processing statutory deductions, maintaining accurate and secure records, administering pensions and benefits are all key to employee satisfaction.

No matter how large or small your workforce, managing all of these duties whilst complying with the tax and employment laws can be time-consuming.  Reporting in real time to HMRC and complying with Auto Enrolment regulations may absorb time and energy you cannot spare.  What’s more, employing a qualified payroll professional on a full or part-time basis may not be your most cost-efficient option.

Fully aligned to your business needs

Albert Goodman can securely manage your entire payroll. Working in partnership with you, a dedicated payroll manager and support team will:

  • Provide burden-free payroll processing, including tax calculations, sick pay, maternity pay, HMRC returns, pension deductions and reports, child support agency deductions and end-of-year returns
  • Generate payment by BACS, as well as e-payslips
  • Advise and prepare communications on upcoming changes in employment and tax laws.

Equally, we respect that you may wish to retain some or all elements of your payroll operations in-house.  We are happy to provide ad-hoc support, including a little bit of extra administrative support as you approach year-end, share information about the best payroll software on the market or advise on legislative changes.

Fully GDPR compliant payroll service.

Our Payroll Services team have robust systems in place to ensure both client and personal data is held and handled securely and that all policies adhere to the present GDPR regulations.

  • Inform you on the best way to cooperate with HMRC, evidence you will need to produce, mistakes to avoid and records that you do not need to disclose.
  • Argue your case, stand up for your rights, draft responses, and make sure you are treated fairly.
  • Provide regular updates on progress, rules and regulations and how long your tax investigation case is likely to last.
  • Estimate tax due, plus interest and likely penalties early on, so you can budget accordingly.
