Payroll: Information for employers (UK)

As an new employer, you need to:

If you have engaged Standard Ledger to process your payroll for you, we:

  • checked with you about your obligations above
  • will have completed the initial setup of your payroll using the information provided by you, including auto-enrolment and national insurance setup
  • will process payroll according to the payroll processing dates we have agreed. Note that we do not process the actual payments to employees. Companies typically either have standardised, regular payments and set these up as recurring payment via their Internet Banking or, if there are varying payments each payroll (especially where there are casual staff), we will send the details including a bank file containing the payments to be made to the authorised company representative.
  • will process pension payments (these are due no later than the 22nd of the next month after the payroll is processed).
  • will advise of the PAYE tax withheld from employe's pay
  • will process EOFY P60 payroll summaries for employees 

You as employer need to:

  • approve employee timesheets for any casuals in a timely manner in accordance with the payroll processing cycle so they can be included
  • process employee payments
  • take out and pay for employers liability insurance
  • pay HMRC any amounts due
  • ensure pension contributions are made
  • advise us of any new employees
  • advise us of any changes to employee details including when employees are leaving
