The UK has one of the most complicated payrolls in the world. When you consider the ever-changing regulations concerning taxation, commission, bonuses, expenses, benefits, holidays, sickness and the various family-care entitlements, together with the compulsory automatic enrolment pension duties, then the legalities and processes of paying both your employees and HMRC the correct amounts at the correct time are not something to be lightly undertaken.
