Friend and Grant Ltd - Payroll, PAYE, NI and CIS Tax Consultants in Strood near Rochester and throughout Kent

PAYE and National Insurance (NI)

Friend and Grant Ltd provide a specialist computerised payroll bureau facility covering all areas of Pay As You Earn (PAYE), national insurance (NI) and CIS tax, from their offices in Strood near Rochester, Kent.

Many businesses find the calculation of PAYE and NI for directors and staff to be extremely time consuming. Keeping up to date with the changes in legislation can be difficult. Sometimes the information contained is also very sensitive. Whatever the reason we have found that many clients look to outsource this work to us.

If you are thinking the same then why not contact our payroll department through our PAYE & NI manager, Zoe Tapson. Zoe has a wealth of experience and can set in place a simple system to administer your payroll. Please contact her for a quotation for the work. Whether the payroll is monthly or weekly, whether you require telepay or not, we can carry out the necessary work. Whatever your size of payroll, from just one person up to 100 employees or more, we can help.   

If you deal with subcontractors we also have the facility to run your CIS scheme.

If you are a business owner we can review your salary package to ensure that you are minimising your tax liabilities.

We can advise on benefits in kind and complete the necessary P11D forms.

If you have any queries in respect of salary packages and benefits in kind then please contact our tax manager, Jan Friend.

So why pay more tax and NI contributions than you need to? Why spend time on payroll administration when you could be selling? We can help you to minimise your liabilities, while ensuring that you comply with your obligations. Just view our PAYE and NI guides to find out more.
