7 - Payroll Companies
When employing carers through Direct Payments the same rules for Tax and National Insurance apply. If you are employing staff and paying them over the Lower Earnings Threshold or the person has a second job, then the HMRC (Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs) require you to calculate and deduct Tax and National Insurance payments. This can be quite a complex process and therefore there are several payroll companies that you can engage who specifically give help for people who employ someone using Direct Payments. Once you are signed up with a payroll company all you do is submit to them the hours your staff have worked and they will calculate the Tax and NI for you. Managed payroll services will also transfer your carer’s wages directly for you to make the process easier. Your payroll provider can also help with queries about annual leave calculations.

Barrie Payroll third party managed DP
“I am very happy with the service and support that I have received over the years from Barrie Book-keeping. They provide us with third party payroll solution/ direct payments for the carer that we have for our autistic son, and who is funded by our local borough. The system is very simple - we supply time sheets on a monthly basis, and Barrie's team do all the rest - organising payment directly into the carer's account monthly, payslips, end of year payroll P60 etc. I have always been able to get hold of someone at Barrie's quickly if I need them, and the stress of admin has been made much easier through their professional support. I thoroughly recommend this approach for families who are dealing with the provision of care that is borough funded for a loved one.” – Tania, local DP employer
