If you have a business, the chances are you will need to operate a payroll.
When you set up in business the easiest and quickest way to register a payroll is on line
Once your payroll is registered its worth obtaining dispensations to hopefully avoid or at least reduce the need for P11D’s
Having registered your payoll you will get a pack in the post from HMRC which will include a CD ‘Basic PAYE Tools’ this CD has everything you need to run your own payroll for free, as an alternative you can download ‘Basic PAYE Tools’
Its a great bit of software and you can set up multiple business and create employee databases.
The only thing it doesn’t do is produce payslips, but you can do that easily yourself by creating your own template in Word or Excel.
