This is going to be a busy month for reporting and pay checks. If you fall within the guidelines of Gender Pay Gap Reporting, you will need to file this by 4th April (if you have more than 250 employees). You should also make sure that you are following IR35 tax reforms this month, and going forward, if you have any independent contractors so you do not fall foul of tax implications. This rule does not apply to agency staff.

It is imperative that you also ensure you review employees’ wages to ensure they are aligned with the national living wage (if applicable) and national minimum wage increase below:
