Course overview

Since the introduction of the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS), employers have been challenged to learn about a whole new way of paying people as well as keeping up-to-date with the latest ‘Business as usual’ legislation. This half-day update will help you do just that... ensuring that your understanding and application of payroll and HR legislation is fully up-to-date, including the next phase of financial help for employers: the Job Support Scheme (to replace CJRS) the Job Retention Bonus, the Kickstart Scheme and support for apprentices. We’ll also consider the compliance regime around CJRS that will be with us for the next six years!

The course is delivered by our expert presenter, Kate Upcraft, who will guide you through and crucially also look at changes coming up next year to ensure you are well prepared. In these unprecedented times when paying people accurately has never been more important to your employees or your business, attending this important update will give you the confidence to know that you organisation is running a compliant payroll operation – whether it is in-house or outsourced.

What will be covered?

This payroll update course will cover the following areas:

  • Employment Support Schemes & COVID-19: Unprecedented financial support for employers of course means a compliance regime to match, legislated for in this year’s Finance Act. As the CJRS comes to an end, we will consider the main areas for you to audit as well as how the Job Support Scheme, Job Retention Bonus Scheme, Kickstart and Apprenticeship Support Schemes work.
  • SSP: New rules were implemented for the payment and recovery of SSP due to COVID-19. What are the key differences
  • Workers’ rights: Changes to holiday pay and terms and conditions from April 2020.
  • Student Loans: A new loan type for Scotland from April 2021 means changes to the starter process as well as student loan processing
  • Off payroll working: Since April 2017, public sector employers have had to put a new type of payee on the payroll: a ‘deemed worker’ which could be any of the contractors/consultants you’ve been working with for years or might use in the future. This has been delayed until April 2021 in the private sector but that leaves less than six months to prepare
  • Employment Allowance: If you are you still able to claim it from April 2020, do you understand the restrictions on eligibility, how does it interact with CJRS?
  • NI exemption for veterans: From April 2021 employers will be incentivised to recruit veterans from the Armed Forces.
  • NI exemption in Freeports: Freeports are likely to be established for certain airports, sea ports and rail ports and the government is consulting on an exemption from employer NI.
  • Statutory payments: Bereavement pay and leave from April 2020, National Minimum Wage changes and compliance issues.
  • Benefits and expenses: Current issues in benefits’ provision - changes to company car tax from April 2020, the impact of working from home on benefits in kind and the end of the final transition period for Optional Remuneration Arrangements affecting cars, school fees and living accommodation
  • Pensions: An update of recent and future developments in workplace pension provision.

Who should attend?

The course is crucial for people with any Payroll or HR responsibility within their company. Whether you run your payroll in-house or outsource it to an agent – you will benefit a great deal from attending this course.

If you outsource your payroll, this course will help you ensure that you are getting good value for money from your agent and also make you aware of any changes that still need to be implemented by employers rather than their agents.

It is also perfect for the payroll agents themselves, who are looking to ensure that the payroll service they are providing for their clients is fully compliant.

The course assumes some prior understanding of payroll or HR. If you do not have this, you may wish to consider our full-day course The Essentials of UK Payroll Processing before attending this course.
