Having employees isn't just about paying them. It's also about understanding responsibilities such as statutory payments and sending regular reports and payments to HMRC.

HMRC's online e-learning guidance, ‘Becoming and Employer', provides all an employer needs to know and it makes a handy guide too. 

HMRC also has a new series of five short videos to help and support new employers:
