These are some of the services that we can provide you with here at Stewardship:

  • Monthly payroll records prepared according to your instructions.
  • Secure online payslips for employers and employees.
  • Your employees’ salaries paid into their bank account on the last working day of the month.
  • PAYE and NICs liabilities paid to the Accounts Office.
  • Our specialist team dealing with the Tax Office on your behalf.
  • Real time information reporting to HM Revenue & Customs.
  • Recovery of the Employment Allowance where due.
  • P60 End of Year Certificate issued to all employees.
  • Support and guidance through your pension auto enrolment obligations.
  • Optional extras, such as; integrated Payroll Giving, help with Expense and Benefit declarations, specialised reporting and assistance with other technical payroll areas.
