The Diocese offer payroll services where parishes employ staff but are unable to offer a payroll service for their staff.
The staff are paid monthly and the parish is re-charged the gross pay and employers national insurance monthly – the DBF makes the payments of PAYE and National insurance to HMRC.
Any pension matters are dealt with by the individual parish, not by the Diocese.
Please note that the Annual HMRC Employment Allowance of £5,000 cannot be claimed by an individual parish – this is only available if a parish does their own payroll.
For further information,please contact David Mason in the Diocesan Office on 01733 887022 or by email.
