I have a new employee – what do I need to do?

The employer should complete this form:
Please ask your employee to complete this form:

My employee is off sick - what do I need to do?

If you have any sick leave, please email a copy of the sick note to, and confirm the first full day of sickness and also the actual return to work date, if the employee has now returned to work.

My employee has resigned - what do I need to do?

  • Their last day of service
  • Details of any holiday pay due to employee
  • The number of days/hours holiday to be paid

PAYE Direct Debit

How do I set up a direct debit to HMRC for PAYE:
The system that allows you to pay your PAYE by direct debit is now live.
To set this up, sign into your business tax account, and under PAYE for employers select “set up a Direct Debit”.



We cannot set this up for you, but if you need any assistance with this, please do let us know.
Just to highlight that the payment may be taken from your account after the due date where that falls on a non-working day. HMRC will backdate the payment to the due date, but in the meantime your account may show overdue payments/late payment penalties or interest. HMRC will remove these as long as the direct debit is collected on time. 

Not Just Numbers Training Platform

What is Not Just Numbers training platform?

We have partnered with Mellor Financial Management to develop a training platform that meets the needs of our clients. It’s an interactive, online training platform which can be accessed at any time.
The aim of the platform is to give you confidence when looking at your numbers and to enable you to have more effective conversations about where you are and where you’d like to be!
You can learn at your pace and dip back in any time you need a refresher.

How do I access it?

Access the Not Just Numbers finance training platform on the following link for clients of Not Just Numbers.
Please email for the access code for the platform

Why should I spend time going through the training?

The platform has been built to be interactive and easy to use, so you can fit the training in and around all your other commitments. You can do the training in bite sized chunks (20 minutes here and there) or you can dive right in and complete it all in one go.
Don’t just take our word for how useful the platform is though … please see the following video from the platform’s creator, Martin Mellor.

Director’s Loan Accounts

How does a Director's Loan Account operate?

Put simply, a director’s loan is when you take money from your company that is in excess of:
  • a salary, dividend or expense repayment due to you.
  • money you’ve previously paid into or loaned the company.
It is money that you as Director borrow from your company and will eventually have to repay unless the excess can be covered by a dividend. Bear in mind that a dividend can only be declared if there are sufficient profits after Corporation Tax to support it. Tax planning of when the dividends are declared also must be taken into consideration.
A Director’s loan must be repaid within nine months and one day of the company’s year-end and any unpaid balance at that time will be subject to a 33.75 per cent corporation tax charge (known as S455 tax).
The loan account balance must be shown on the company’s corporation tax return (CT600) and the S455 tax is payable nine months and one day from the end of the relevant accounting period.
Any loan over £10,000 will also be personally taxed and needs to be recorded as a Benefit in Kind.
Tax paid by the company is usually temporary and can be reclaimed from HMRC once the loan has been repaid in full, however, this can be a lengthy process.
The use of a Directors Loan can be helpful in respect of tax planning but needs to be carefully considered.
