Compliance Solutions

Employment tax - PAYE tax and national insurance compliance, including national minimum wage

HMRC is more focused than ever on employer compliance. They commonly impose financial settlements for several years to collect tax, national insurance, interest and penalties on any errors that they discover.

Our PAYE healthcheck will give you comfort that your PAYE benefits and expenses systems and procedures would stand up to scrutiny by HMRC. The areas covered can include:

  • A review of payroll procedures, including statutory payments and national minimum wage
  • A review of benefits-in-kind and P11D procedures
  • To ensure those engaged on a self-employed basis will be accepted as such under IR35 rules due to be rolled out to the private sector in April 2021
  • Checking that all expenses will meet HMRC’s business expense exemption
  • Reviewing compliance with national insurance regulations
  • Compliance with the construction industry scheme

PAYE Healthcheck

Construction Industry Scheme (CIS)

The Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) can be complex and confusing for contractors and sub-contractors alike, whether you are starting out and new to CIS or you have been in the construction sector for a number of years. The expectation of compliance from HMRC is very high. Penalties for failures by both contractors and sub-contractors are harsh and difficult to mitigate, so we can help you get things right.

Our Employer Solutions Team can support you by:

  • Setting up or reviewing your procedures
  • Assisting you with the upkeep of your CIS business requirements
  • Helping you to navigate the legislation – what is inside and what is outside the scope of CIS
  • Dealing with HMRC challenge
  • Undertaking a CIS healthcheck

Employment Status (IR35)

Legislation that was due to come into force on 6 April 2020 has been delayed for 12 months. However, from April 2021 the way in which businesses engage with individuals who provide their services through a personal services company will change. So you need to understand your obligations and plan ahead.

Employee Benefits & Rewards

Employee Benefits

The right employee benefits scheme creates value for employees and employers alike. We know that there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution. Companies have different needs and a scheme should reflect the workforce, be adaptable and relevant to achieve maximum impact and return on investment.

At PKF Francis Clark we not only provide businesses with tailored financial planning services to meet their strategic goals, but also ensure that they are structured in the most tax efficient way to make sure businesses get maximum return on investment in their employees.

Employee Benefits

Share Schemes

Increasing share ownership is proven to help retain and motivate staff and there can also be some potentially substantial tax savings available – although there are a number of challenges and ways to structure share participation.
