Can someone advise as to how much to charge for processing payroll monthly and weekly please? I am charging £3.50 for weekly at the moment and I'm constantly having to chase for information.

    Can someone give me more a more upto date idea of what to charge for payroll - some of these posts are quite old.
    I do a weekly payroll for 5/6 people with payslips. Her last bookkeeper was charging only £15 per month, but this seems ever so low!! Thankyou

    I thought 31 March 2010 relatively up to date!

    I also thought it was fairly up to date, prices don't change that regularly. I don't offer payroll as a service but do offer it to go alongside accounts and tax work.

    I do two directors basic salaries for free but I would charge £15 per month for 3 monthly employees with fixed salary so I would say it's on the the low side. If they have varying hours then even more so.

    I only have one that is weekly which is more like 55 employees so not really comparable.

    Per payroll run, up to 5 payslips, between £10 and £20 depending on where you look. That's what I found out last time I was looking.

    I think that prices depend on what part of the country you are in. I find it no problem charging the following fees:
    £15.00 per week (for a weekly payroll), which works out at £65 per month by standing order, for up to 10 employees.
    £30 - £35 per month for a monthly payroll only (for up to 10 employees).

    I also charge a separate £80 for processing the P35.

    These prices include phone calls, chasing and any amendments, and I have been happy with the fee. Rather than charging less then adding up the extra time each month.
    (I am based in the North West).

    If someone came to me with just 2 or 3 employees though, I would probably charge them £7 per week for this. The minimum I would charge for 1 would be £3.50. As you have to take into account your stationery costs, envelopes and postage etc.

    Kind Regards
