Looking after payroll third party liabilities 52 weeks per year
There are a number of deductions from pay that academies and cash funded schools who operate their own Pay As You Earn (PAYE) scheme are legally obliged to make, such as income tax, national insurance, pension contributions, and court orders. Other deductions from pay are optional but have been made via payroll historically (for example union fees and salary sacrifice for childcare) and the academy or school may choose to continue to offer these services.
Where a separate PAYE scheme is operated and pay comes from the local bank account, the responsibility for making these payments from on their relevant due dates, together with providing the remittance details in the format required by the relevant body rests with the academy/school. Taking up the third party payments service will allow the academy or school to assign this workload to HR Shared Services’ Technical Support team.
If the academy or school buys the third party payments service, it will be essential that the HR/Pay service is also taken up.
Please note that Dorset Council maintained schools receive this service as part of the HR/Pay service provision.
