Latest Service Update - July 2020:

We continue to experience a large volume of customer contact however we have made good progress with many workstreams over the last few weeks. For the coming few weeks ahead, here are some service and furlough related updates to be aware of:

1. Our phones will be open everyday from 9am to 1pm. We anticipate our phone lines to be extra busy over the coming weeks, if you cannot get through, you can email covid19queries@stafftax.co.uk or info@stafftax.co.uk (for non Furlough/Covid19 queries)

2. If you have yet to make your first furlough claim we encourage you to do this as there is now a deadline of the 31st July. The Furlough Portal has a detailed step by step guide on how to claim, alternatively email covid19queries@stafftax.co.uk.

3. If your employee has returned to work after a period of being on furlough, you can let us know by simply visiting the Furlough Portal and go to Step 7 'End Furlough'.

4. We will continue to furlough your employee until you either inform us to:

a. End Furlough, which can be done via the Furlough Portal. b. Apply part time/ flexible furlough, which can be done via the Furlough Portal. c. Make your employee redundant. To find out more about this, visit out contact us page. d. Tell us your nanny has left, which you can do via the Members Area.

Natural Fit

Workplace Pension Service

Do you have a workplace pension scheme in place? The UK government now requires all employers to offer a pensions scheme and automatically enrol eligible staff into it.

Save yourself the time and stress of organising a pension with our Auto Enrolment Workplace Pensions solution. This competitive service can be added on to both our Standard and Plus payroll services and automatically enroll new and existing eligible staff into the government’s workplace pension scheme on your behalf.

Our Auto Enrolment Workplace Pensions service includes:

  • Create a NEST pension scheme on behalf of the employer
  • Ensure all legally required communications are sent to the employees within the deadlines required
  • Enrol all employees that meet the criteria for Auto Enrolment into a NEST pension scheme
  • Calculate pension contributions per pay period and display them on the payslip
  • Apply postponements to new employees to cover probationary periods
  • Inform The Pensions Regulator when your duties have been completed by submitting a Declaration of Compliance
  • Manage any 'Opt-Outs' or 'Cease Memberships' processed by NEST and present any refunds due (if applicable) onto the next available payslip
  • Manage any 'Opt-Ins' from employees wishing to join the NEST pension scheme who were not automatically enrolled
  • Manage the payments into NEST each pay period into NEST within the legal deadlines
  • Keep comprehensive Auto Enrolment records
  • Manage the on-going duties, such as completing your 'Re-Declaration' every 3 years to inform The Pensions Regulator you are still compliant with the Auto Enrolment legislation.

*All employers are legally required to provide a workplace pension for their qualifying employees.
