Allens Payroll helps you to navigate through the increasing red tape of paying your employees.

At Allens Payroll we take away the pain of meeting strict HMRC deadlines and the burden of keeping up to date with ever changing and complex legislation.

The legislation for Auto Enrolment Pensions means all firms must offer their employees a pension and enrol them automatically if they meet the criteria, so having an expert payroll and pensions team has never been so important.

In partnership with our pension experts Allens Wealth Managers we can guide you through all aspects of the new pension rules, from choosing the right pension all the way through to assessing the employees that are eligible for auto enrolment and issuing the legally required communications.

We are more of a compliance service, we do make sure the tax is calculated correctly and advise our clients when to pay it, however we can’t really get ‘creative’ like the accountants as there’s less scope.

We ensure that all our clients meet the legal obligations of running a payroll (including filing returns with HMRC and the upcoming AE regs). And communicate this in an easy to understand way to our clients, making sure they know what to pay and when.

Unearthing hidden value

We started acting for an international logistics company in 2008. Our deeper approach focused on several areas that hadn't previously been considered.

Within 2 years, savings of £200,000 had been identified, and our accountancy fees had paid for themselves several times over.

 

Negotiation & due diligence

A client was negotiating to buy a struggling care home. The vendor would not budge from asking price in excess of £100,000. Allens entered the negotiations and worked around the clock and through the weekend to perform due diligence and ensure the most favourable terms.

A deal was done, via an insolvency contact, at £40,000. We stayed with the project several weeks post completion to assist smooth running. The client turned round the business and made £250,000 net profit in year one as per our original projections.

 

Development & innovation

We started acting for a leading provider of vending control software. The company stays at the forefront of its industry by continual development and innovation. We immediately identified a lucrative research and development tax credit claim.

The claim seemed so obvious that we were puzzled as to why their previous accountants weren't already claiming. So we asked them. They told us it was because they were unaware that they did development - even though development was listed as one of the principal activities of the company in the directors' report.

 

Redundancy & tax

A client received a redundancy package from Corus, followed by a work offer by a German customer. His bank manager recommended making a lump sum pension contribution to avoid higher rate tax. But this advice was commission/ product driven as the client already had adequate pension arrangements.

We took a more holistic view and advised him to start contracting with his German customer via a trading company. This way, the client avoided the higher rate tax and retained ready access to his money. We then helped him invest his surplus monies according to his personal risk profile and financial objectives.
