Course description

Automatic enrolment and pensions for payroll

The introduction of auto enrolment has significantly increased the primacy and complexity of administering pension contributions as part of the payroll function.

From providing a detailed explanation of the numerous types of pension schemes currently in operation, this course moves to cover the various tax treatments of employee contributions and the various points payroll staff must consider calculating contributions accurately.

From this, a detailed explanation of the rules and regulations concerning auto-enrolment is imparted as are the potential penalties for non-compliance with this new statutory requirement.

You will leave this course equipped with the knowledge and skills to administer this vital and much-changed arena.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Continuing Studies

Creating a Payroll Procedures Manual

The inclusion of auto-enrolment processes is just one of the broad arrays of tasks and obligations that Payroll Supervisors and Managers must incorporate into their procedural documentation.

This course covers the theory and practicalities that need to be considered when designing a procedures document that all payroll departments need to ensure all statutory and contractual obligations are managed efficiently and professionally.

Salary sacrifice and optional renumeration

Pensions are often offered through salary sacrifice. Valid salary sacrifice schemes have several, often poorly understood rules which must be followed to avoid potentially large tax and NIC underpayments charged by HMRC.

This half day course explains the legal and payroll-related implications of salary sacrifice schemes and other optional remuneration arrangements which enables delegates to understand how to ensure their organisations remain compliant in this genre.

This is the 4th course I've done with Sylvia and I think she's fab! It must be so difficult teaching a course to a screen and not having engagement with the delegates, but I think she does a fab job
