As an SME, with a limited number of employees, what payroll structure should I put in place, in
order to be compliant with legislation but at the same time pragmatic about relieving the burden
of record keeping on a small business?
The goal is to set out a suitable and systematic approach to handling the payroll of an SME. The
typical SME will be a company with one or two full time employees that may or may not be earning
above the individual tax threshold as well as a number of casual part-time employees who come
and go, depending on the availability of work. These SMEs will also typically have one or two
directors who take an irregular salary that is dependent on the profitability of the business.
The workshop will follow a step-by-step guide as to how best to approach the payroll for the
above scenarios. This will be of value to the SME, as well as the employees of the SME, who will
benefit from a more structured relationship with their employer.
To provide clear guidelines for owners of SMEs, on how to comply with payroll legislation, while at
the same time, adopting a pragmatic approach.
