Your employees are your single greatest asset – they help drive your company towards profitability and success. However, they will only do this if they are paid on time and in full – payroll errors can impact this experience.
Payslip errors can impact employee productivity and organisational cultural inclusiveness. Furthermore, PAYE-related errors with HMRC can also create further headaches for your business.

What You Need To Consider If You Still Do Payroll “In-House”
If you have employees who “clock-in” or “sign-in” by making the process as intuitive and simple as possible can help reduce human error. Some bars and restaurants have even binned the clocking-in machine in favour of utilising the time management options available in modern electronic point of sale systems – so when your staff use their fobs for the first time to setup the tills, they clock-in for work.
Recording overtime in another area in which payroll error is common. By digitising the experience, by using a staff app or centralised staff computer, you could make the process of accurately recording overtime, educating staff about rates and the process along with having the logs accessible can all make the process easier.
Tax code problems are a pretty common issue facing SMEs and having an incorrect tax code means your employee could be paying the wrong amount of tax – which can result in tax authorities levying penalties and charges. By making sure your staff are on the correct tax code, you can help make their taxpaying experience easier.
Workplace pension changes are now part of the landscape for small businesses. You will need to create an auto-enrolment process whereby your employees, who meet the threshold criteria, can automatically start paying their workplace pension contributions – or opt-out/back in if they so desire at a later date.
