Cracking the Jargon with End 2 End Payroll

Whether you are new employer or have been paying your employees for a while the HMRC will often throw you some jargon, usually an acronym or an abbreviation in their literature that makes you think what does that mean?

Without trying, in my opening sentence I have written “HMRC” shortened from Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs, commonly known as the Inland Revenue, or affectionately as “The” Tax Man.  3 names for the same thing no wonder the world of paying your employees’ is confusing.  It would be fair enough to say HMRC might not be the most confusing acronym and most people know what it means, but would you know what was meant by FPS or EAS or even PAYE?  Not knowing is one thing but ignoring these could get you in a lot of trouble.  The HMRC will fine you, add penalties and surcharges, then add interest for late payment if you don’t comply with their online filing rules.

End 2 End Payroll can take away the worry of cracking the jargon and take care of your payroll for you.  We use HMRC accredited software to calculate the gross to net payments and to send the information directly to the HMRC.  There would be no need to know that PAYE means Pay As You Earn or FPS means Employer Payment Summary or EAS relates to your Employer Alignment Submission, End 2 End Payroll would take care of all that for you.
