The requirements of being an employer have changed considerably in recent years with a multitude of new regulations and increasingly complex employment taxation and pay regulations.

This is driven by the government’s agenda to create a fair workplace for all, and to have a tax system that is fair and consistently applied.

At Johnston Carmichael, we understand that tackling the complexity and technical detail involved with being an employer can be a challenge while trying to keep focused on running your business day-to-day; especially as the potential penalties for non-compliance can be significant – and not just in the financial sense.

Making mistakes with employees’ pay and inadvertently causing additional tax or National Insurance payments could cost you your employees’ loyalty and damage your reputation as an employer. Any mistakes could severely damage your reputation and brand for the long term.

Our Employer Services team, led by Brian Rudkin has extensive experience in advising and supporting employers of all shapes and sizes and across all industry sectors in relation to employment tax and pay governance. We offer pragmatic and clear advice that is cost effective and relevant, ensuring we stay one step ahead of legislative changes, avoiding operational issues for your business in the future.

No matter which sector you’re operating in, or which employee-related area is causing you concern, Johnston Carmichael can offer a solution which will give you peace of mind and let you concentrate on your business.

Our team can assist you with key areas including:

  • Employment status – including ‘worker’ status, IR35 and office holders
