I’ve subscribed, what happens next?
After you have subscribed you will receive a welcome email from us. Please read this email carefully as it requires action on your part in order to get you fully set up as an employer. (If you haven't received the email by the end of the next working day after subscribing, please check your junk mail inbox - see FAQs.)
The emails contain the following:
1. Important information:
2. Forms attached you need to complete and return to us ASAP:
These require a date and signature only, and authorise us to act as your agent with HMRC. Without these forms we are not allowed to act on your behalf. It is important you download these forms and return them by post (as we require original signatures) ASAP – once we have received these forms your PAYE scheme will take HMRC around 15 working days to set up.
We are required and committed to complying with the government’s Money Laundering Regulations 2007.
3. A request to complete your new employee’s Payroll Information
Once we have your payroll information and your new PAYE scheme is up and running we will start supplying payslips. These will be made available in the Members Area for you and/or your employee to download.
In addition to the above we also recommend that you complete the Employment Health Check, available in the Members Area, to ensure to have covered all your bases as an employer. This checklist covers everything from insurance, to contracts, to making sure your employee can legally work in the UK. It’s well worth doing.
It’s important for you to keep us informed of changes to your employee’s employment situation. This includes changes to working hours (e.g., overtime) or changes in salary etc, and try to let us know as soon as possible in order to keep the payroll accurate.
Finally, all you have do, is pay your employee on the basis of the payslips we provide and pay HMRC your liabilities by their deadlines (see Rates & Thresholds for deadlines), on the basis of the bills we provide.
