A relatively new client has asked us to assist with their payroll. They are a recruitment agency and place employees with customers on a temporary basis. They have approx. 40 employees with 4 customers. Currently payroll is run by 3rd party connected to a factoring company as part of a factoring agreement. One customer is to be removed from the factoring arrangement (our client has indicated that they have taken legal advice and are able to do this) and our client wants us to run the payroll for the 10 employees at this customer.
- Can an employer run multiple payrolls on one PAYE ref? (I'm pretty sure they can as some employers have weekly and monthly paid employees. I think an employer can submit multiple FPSs)
- Can these be run by different payroll providers? Who may be using different software?
- Will there be confusion with HMRC where the employees are on the payroll then transfer to our "new" payroll?
