2018/19 payroll changes

The Autumn Budget 2017 announced changes to tax and NI limits. What do you need to know to prepare for the 2018/19 payroll year?


Hiring accounts staff more quickly

An accounts assistant has just resigned. Last time you had to replace a team member it took far too long to find the right person and in the meantime you had to engage a temp. Are there ways to speed up the recruitment process?


Bonus schemes based on performance scores

The managing director has decided to revise the company’s annual bonus scheme from a pro rata division of the pool and prefers a link to staff performance. How do you go about devising a suitable scheme?
