A simple, straight forward service for Directors – minimal input from you and we ensure you remain fully compliant.
Are Directors Employees?
Whilst Directors of a Limited Company are also shareholders, they are an employee of the company rather than being considered ‘Self-Employed’, and can be paid via PAYE. Depending upon their circumstances, many Directors choose to receive salary up to either their non-taxable allowance, or the point at which Class 1 National Insurance would be deducted, and take the rest of their income as dividends.
Do Directors need a Pension?
A Limited Company with only one Director is usually exempt from Automatic Enrolment obligations, however we will help you determine whether you have Automatic Enrolment duties, and support you in ensuring you are compliant. If the Company appoints other Directors this may alter your Automatic Enrolment obligations, and any employees recruited who are not Directors will certainly alter your obligations. We can advise and support you through this process, from helping you to choose a pension provider and setting up the pension scheme, to ensuring your employees are provided with compliant and informative communication and administering the scheme each pay period.
Directors National Insurance
There are differences with the way a Director’s National Insurance is calculated, and the best method can be chosen based on whether the Director will be paid regularly or intermittently.
Directors can choose to be paid either monthly, quarterly or annually and submissions made to HMRC need to reflect this.

What Are People Saying About Us?
Payroll Sorted have really taken the stress out of payroll for us. It’s like having your own payroll department, knowing that there is always someone there to process the wages and cover holidays, etc. They are awesome people and always try to help as much as possible!
The top two reasons we have been pleased with our choice to use Payroll Sorted for the last 10 months are recruitment and process. We haven’t had to recruit, train, re train payroll skills within the firm on a rolling cycle basis every period of say 2 years. Our team don’t tend to want to work in payroll permanently and want to do a variety of work. We would need approx 1.5 payroll people full time so represents challenges. We are far more comfortable using Payroll Sorted as a provider and it’s a hybrid outsourcing arrangement as the firm continues to charge the client for the full package of services and owns the relationship but the work is carried out by a dedicated payroll team. Secondly, payroll sorted are far better at payroll than we are. Their process is better, their knowledge is better, everything they do is more complete and comprehensive. It gives complete piece of mind. Finally, like anything, it’s not perfect. Nothing is when you are dealing with handovers from previous firms and communicating with clients yet we do our best and the blame is not our end. By us I mean our team plus payroll sorted who I consider an extension of our team. It works great and was really pleased with the intro in March 2021 from industry heavyweights James Ashford and Simon Chaplin.
We have been outsourcing for over a year now. The team make sure that my clients’ payrolls run smoothly and are delivered on time. The team are always quick to help when needed.”
Payroll Sorted are the one… talk to Natalie Tipper
Payroll Sorted are fab
I’m also happy with them. We moved on 6/4 mostly from Xero and some clients didn’t like losing the visibilty they had. Some we already had on Brightpay and employees just need to point their app differently. They are very helpful.
We have been working with Payroll Sorted for almost a year and a half now and I can honestly say outsourcing payroll to them has been one of the best business decisions I have made in growing my accounting practice. My clients are delighted with their service and our team have a great working relationship with the Payroll Sorted team. We love their super speedy response times to emails and the fact that when something goes wrong they go above and beyond to resolve the issue and then methodically investigate and report back exactly how the error was made, and explain how they will update their processes to prevent it from happening again in the future.
They only use Brightpay and are brilliant. We use it as an upsell because payroll is complicated and getting more so, therefore to give our best possible service we use specialists. Not 1 client has moaned. Just need to outsource more.
I felt I really needed to tell you about how impressed I am with our new payroll bureau Payroll Sorted.The service I have received to date has been amazing. Well done you guys I wish I had found you sooner.
The team at Payroll Sorted have turned a distraction into a profit centre for me. My clients comment on how good the Payroll Sorted team are, which enhances the trust I have built with my clients. I can’t imagine providing a payroll solution to my clients without them.
