Just a quick post to let you know about a free tool I have been using for a few months now.
I have been using an online payroll package that amazingly is guaranteed to be free for at least 5 years (for 50 employees or less).
It is HMRC approved, appears to have more features and be easier to use than most purchased packages I have come across. In addition, because it is online, you don't need to worry about year-end updates.
It is called Payroo. Have a look and see what you think. Please comment below if you have used this yourself or suggest any other free software you have come across that other readers might find useful.
