Essential Additions to Payroll Basics

Payroll is responsible for an ever-increasing range of responsibilities in the U.K. beyond the core requirement of calculating PAYE income tax and NICs accurately.

From covering in-depth the calculation of student loan deductions and court orders, this course also explores in detail the relatively new arenas of real-time information and auto-enrolment and imparts a detailed overview of processing jury service absence, voluntary deductions, voluntary payrolling of benefits, directors' NICs, processing remittances due to HMRC, and end of year reporting.

      • Starters and leavers
      • Directors' national insurance
      • Court orders (attachments of earnings)
      • Student loans
      • Voluntary deductions
      • Overview of payrolling benefits

      • Jury service
      • HMRC remittances

Course Outline

Introduction to Statutory Payments

Statutory payments in the U.K. are a common area of confusion for payroll staff. Legislation for Statutory Maternity Pay (SMP), Statutory Paternity Pay (SPP), Statutory Adoption Pay (SAP), Statutory Shared Parental Pay (ShPP), and Statutory Parental Bereavement Pay (SPBP) is frequently changing, and although Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) has remained largely unchanged for the last 20 years, misunderstandings between statutory and occupational entitlement are common.

This training concentrates on the complex rules of SMP, SPP, SAP, SSP, ShPP, SPBP, and associated leave, and contains all recent legislative changes. Clear explanations are given on qualification, entitlement, and calculation of the above statutory payments and leave. Comprehensive documentation is provided, including current statutory payments tables.

Course Content:
      • Statutory obligations
      • Statutory entitlement and qualification criteria
      • Exclusions and ceasing entitlement
      • Terminology
      • Calculating payments
      • Record keeping and statutory forms
      • Revenue audit processes and penalties for noncompliance
      • Recovery procedures and offsetting
      • Resolving disagreements on entitlement
