Where Are You On Your Business Journey?

Helping you get the best from your accountant

Employing people

Do you feel like there are not enough hours in the day and are spending too much time working in your business instead of running it? If this sounds like you, you may have considered employing staff. You're probably feeling stressed and frustrated but also daunted at the prospect of becoming an employer.

How to avoid stress and financial penalities

It is true that as an employer you will need to comply with HMRC RTI rules and the Pensions Regulators requirements. If you don’t, there could be heavy financial penalties imposed on your business as well as problems from your employees. However, by following the steps in the milestone checklist you can protect and grow your business with confidence.

During your free introductory consultation we will discuss what you need to do to meet your obligations as an employer. We can also help you decide what type of employee you need in your business, how much you need to pay an employee and whether you can afford it.
