The main emphasis will be on Pay As You Earn (PAYE) and National Insurance (NI), including doing-it-yourself, using free tools provided by HMRC, using commercial payroll software, and outsourcing to a payroll bureau. Registering as an employer, what to do when you take on an employee and when they leave will also be covered in outline. T
