Avoid the minimum wage penalties

Did you know that since 6th April 2009 employers will face a penalty if HMRC discovers that they haven’t paid the national minimum wage? At the same time workers who have’t received the proper amount are entitled to have arrears of wages repaid.

HMRC has given its officers new inspection powers and you may have read in previous Lewis Smith & Co. news items that the incidence of investigations has gone up dramatically in recent months.

Lewis Smith & Co. payroll clients can stay calm because we automatically notify them of any relevant changes to legislation and, depending on the level of service, we will update systems as necessary.

If you are finding payroll a burden or you have any concerns about the impact of financial legislation on your business then call 01384 235549 today to set up a free initial consultation.
