Hi all

 

I am currently in the process of going self-employed and offering Bookkeeping and Payroll services.

I am a MICB member and therefore this entitles me to offer Bookkeeping services on a self-employed basis but in regards to Payroll, my qualification was gained in 2009 and have not used it for a few years and therefore been adivsed to re-take the Level III exam again.

Can i still offer Payroll services as a 'Payroll Agent' before passing this retaken exam or is this Illegal?

 

Please can someone tell me the proper process for providing Payroll services so that I do not get myself in trouble legally.

 

Thanks

Hi Andrew,

Unless you have the payroll qualification or an exemption from ICB you would not be able to offer payroll services.  In fact, unless you have a current practice licence and are therefore regulated by ICB you are not allowed to offer any services - tis would include marketing your business in the hope of securing clients.

 Hi Lucy

 

Thanks for the info on this, i have another question....i understand that self-employed people can claim allowable expenses on certain items when working from home would this effect me who is working from my parent's house? can i still claim a proportion of electricity from my office room even though it is not my house?

 

Thanks

Andrew

Are you paying bills to your parents?  If so, then yes a  proportion could be claimable.  If not then no.

Hi Lucy

 

only paying them for rent, nothing directly towards utility bills, once i pay them then they choose what that money goes towards.

 

Would i still be able to claim a proportion?
