HMRC update their guidance for Basic Payroll Tools Users

HMRC have recently updated their User Guide for Basic Payroll Tools (BPT), the free payroll software provided by HMRC and used by many employers.

The BPT guidance can be found here.

The User Guide includes information on ‘auto enrolment’, but remember that if you need to provide a pension to your employee under auto enrolment this needs to be calculated separately as auto enrolment is not currently integrated into BPT.

For more information on auto-enrolment see our factsheet here.

Also, the Pensions Regulator has lots of advice on getting started with auto-enrolment and has a dedicated section for those who employ a carer.
