Course overview

In the ever-changing world of payroll and HR, keeping up to date with the latest legislation can be a real challenge. 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.

Our expert presenter, Kate Upcraft, will guide you through all the recent legislative changes to payroll and HR. Crucially, she will also look at changes coming up in the near future to ensure you are well prepared. Attending this important update course will give you and your colleagues the confidence to know that you are completely up-to-date with legislation and best practice, ensuring your 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:

  • 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 will be rolled out to most of the private sector in April 2020, so how do you handle this and what is the impact on your organisation?
  • Tax and NI issues: The restriction in the Employment Allowance for 2020/21 and its complex interaction with State Aid for 2019/20, the issues with the implementation of  Welsh income tax from April 2019 and the new type of NI - ‘Class 1A in real time’ from April 2020
  • Student loans: The introduction of post-graduate loan collection from April 2019
  • Statutory payments: Future developments including a review of SSP, bereavement pay and leave from April 2020 and National Minimum Wage payslip changes and compliance issues
  • Benefits and expenses: Current issues in benefits’ provision - changes to company car tax from April 2020 and a restriction on trivial benefits’ provision
  • Optional remuneration arrangements (the new name for salary sacrifice): The impact of the significant changes to the way benefits in kind are taxed from April 2017
  • Pensions: An update of recent and future developments in workplace pension provision
  • HMRC compliance: Using your business and personal tax account and the impact of dynamic coding on employees and employers

Who should attend?

The course is crucial for people with any Payroll and 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.
