As my business grew, CRASL supported me. Taking on an employee for the first time, having to setup payroll and a pension through NEST appeared daunting, but CRASL made it really easy and handled pretty much everything for me.

Each month, I just send through my payroll information by email and in no time at all, I get back all the information I need, how much to pay HMRC and a digital payslip to provide to my employees.

Being a local company, I can just pop round whenever I need to, to sign my accounts or get any help or advice I need.

I just wanted to say how very pleased I am to have had the opportunity to change my accounting affairs to CRASL.

You have made it all suddenly seem so very simple; with your friendly assistance, my Self Assessment has been submitted without hassle and your account I settled with the greatest of pleasure!

It was particularly helpful that you visited me in my home, where everything was at hand, rather than previously having to put everything in the post.

I shall look forward to our meeting again next year.

I’ve been lucky enough that Martin and his team have been doing my accounts for nearly 15 years now. They’ve taken me from a new sole trader, through vat registration, limited company status and all the legal and financial stuff that comes with running a growing business. I like dealing with the CRASL team, I’ve always found them to be fair, true and very responsive. They take the stuffiness out of accounting, I love it!

⭐⭐The new minimum wage for 2020 came into force on the 1st April 2020…….. Are YOU up to date? How does it work with furloughed staff?

The new National Minimum Wage (NMW) for over 25's, from 1st April is 💥 £8.72 💥

(see here for details of all of the new NMW: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/government-announces-pay-rise-for-28-million-people)

So, how does this work with furloughed staff?

"Furloughed workers who are not working can be paid the lower of 80% of their wages or £2,500 even if, based on their usual working hours, this would be below their appropriate minimum wage"

(See here for more details: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/steps-to-take-before-calculating-your-claim-using-the-coronavirus-job-retention-scheme)

The 80% furlough pay does NOT need to be adjusted to reflect the new National Minimum Wage……

BUT….. As soon as your staff:

🔹️Carry out any TRAINING on periods of furlough

🔹️Return to ANY working hours after their furlough period has ended

🔹️They MUST be paid the appropriate hourly minimum wage amount

If you need any help or advice, then our friendly team here at CRASL are up to date with all the very latest changes. ⭐⭐
