PAYE Healthcheck Bedford

Our PAYE Healthcheck service is designed to find any PAYE issues before the Taxman does! 

Why is a PAYE health check needed? 

A PAYE health check is a third-party review of an employer’s payroll and benefit systems to verify that they are providing the correct outcomes in terms of tax and NIC on employees’ pay, costs, and benefits compliance. It’s intended to reduce the risk of interest and fees, as well as increase compliance. 

How does the PAYE health check work? 

One of our specialists in this sector will come to your team to examine your payroll, cost policy and procedure, expense policy and procedure, employee and director expenses and benefits during a PAYE health check. 

After that, we will supply a verbal or written report – in a detailed manner or as a shorter summary – to identify any existing or potential concerns and suggest methods for resolution. 

We also provide a wide range of other payroll services, including our cost-effective outsourced payroll bureau, which makes sure your payroll administration is always HMRC compliant.
