Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hi again.I've never used Kashflow. If you google "paye software", you will see find some very inexpensive payroll software. I'm not allowed to recommend a particular software unfortunately but the one I have used and still do occasionally is very easy to use though you will need to enter your payroll agent ID and password ***** you have to submit the monthly figures to the tax office via the internet using the Real Time Information system. Commercial payroll softwares will do all that for you and some provide blank payslips for your printer. The one I have used recommends a company from which you can buy payslips and will also print a black pre-designed payslip onto plain paper, though some employees I've dealt with don't think its a real payslip.You can read about RTI here. Really, you should have been doing this since April but as it is your first year, HMRC should be lenient. HMRC does have a basic payroll software but it doesn't produce payslips unfortunately.An alternative to doing the payroll yourself is to have it done by a payroll bureau or an accountant or tax adviser. Many accountants will run payrolls for clients fairly inexpensively depending on the number of employees. Make a few calls to local accountants to get an idea of the cost.I hope this helps but let me know if you have any further questions.
