I'd agree with you on QB online
but for this many transactions, I'd say Xero would be a bit flimsy as well
we have a lot of clients using Clear Books, several of this size and volume of transactions and we find it be a really robust system, without too much to go wrong
other than that have you tried speaking with your current provider i.e. Sage to see what they recommend?
how much did you quote?!
yes, yes, yes
I think the question has been answered - a monthly salary / payroll is paid monthly, a weekly salary/ payroll is paid weekly
yes you can probably get away one or two advance payments per payroll year on a monthly set up
BUT no matter how you try to justify it, 52 weekly advances is a weekly payroll, not a monthly payroll!!
on or before each time an employee is paid an RTI report needs to be filed with HMRC
under the normal circumstances if the employee is paid weekly, the payroll would need to be run weekly to allow the correct RTI submissions to be sent
i believe concessions ceased in April 2016, so potentially there is penalty for each inaccurate / non filed return
sounds like you have a mismatch between the reality of the employee's payment cycle and the payroll cycle - probably down to cost of running the payroll or to avoid hassle of doing it weekly
not really your issue if you dont run the payroll, but I'd advise them to get it sorted
it is indeed
Yes its correct
if the client has ceased employment by way of redundancy, then its the company's role to pay her SMP
as you say the company will be able to claim advanced funding for the SMP and it wont actually cost them anything
the company could payout the entire SMP in one payslip and reduce admin that way, but it would put the employee at a disadvantage from an NI perspective
This just shows the problem of setting the bar too low when it comes to pricing
even at the new price the software is great value, but such a big increase in percentage terms is a major turn off for many
Had the email also
will sign up to the annual payment but politely replied to Taxfiler, telling them a 100% increase was out of order
Sadly they wont do anything to make anyone feel better about the software, there are few alternatives as good, even at the higher cost
