HMRC Basic PAYE Tools instead of Payroo

HMRC Basic PAYE Tools instead of Payroo

Didn't find your answer?

With a 'manageable' number of clients (and Directors only), and now that BPT has payslips, I'm thinking of moving to BPT from Payroo.
Any cautions?

TIA

I would not even consider it based on prior comments made in any answers

It's probably more of knowing your motivation behind the change.

If you're considering a move to BPT because it's a better solution than Payroo and works better for you and your clients, you need to decide if BPT fits your requirements.

If you've 'fallen out' with Payroo, perhaps because it doesn't fit the bill, perhaps look at other solutions available to you. I did this a few years ago - primarily due to 'pensions' functionalty but did not move to BPT!

If it's purely a cost issue (personally I found Payroo extremely cost effective), consider what you actually get for the cost, by which I mean - support. You may never need 'support' but a single software glitch could easily take you a few hours to resolve.

Incidentally, if my memory serves me correctly, running multiple monthly payrolls for single-director companies costs around £2.50 per annum per director PLUS a total monthly charge of £10. For 12 director payrolls, that works out under £15 per director, per annum. Doesn't sound excessive to me.

Many thanks for the responses, which, I have to say suprised me.
I've used BPT for several years - mainly as the the HMRC recommended "fix" for other misdemeanors, eg. EYU, or a total write over FPS supersede, and didn't experience any issues (but my memory isn't what it was!).

For Payroo, it's nigh on 20 clicks to get an FPS and payslip emailed, when there's basically 3 questions: 1, same as last month? 2, file? 2, send payslip? Though I might have missed something.

There are many products on the market offering levels of automation - ranging from fully automated to, a few clicks. I have a number of Director-Only payrolls on Staffology. Fully automated. I just log in to check all is running fine and updates have been processed (e.g. Tax Code Notices). It's dearer than Payroo but, I save more than the increased cost in time alone!

This. No least as you can bulk file your payroll for directors, just set it up once and its a few clicks to do the lot every month.

Do you know how to remove the requirement to file an EPS when not claiming the employment allowance? I can’t use bulk payroll as it duplicated all files so had to file these individually. Thanks
