Who Are We?

Compass Disability Services is an organisation of disabled people which has grown over the past 10 years. Our mission is to enable disabled people to have equality of opportunity and one of our core values is that we should promote independence, choice and control. There are many people who would like to employ their own care staff (Personal Assistants, Support Workers or Carers), but who are put off by the paperwork and responsibilities involved, particularly those around paying staff and dealing with the tax and national insurance. Since 2006 we have therefore been supporting disabled people to employ their own staff, including running a payroll service.

 How does it work?

We run a Sage Bureau computerised payroll system. Once an employer is set up on this system it is a relatively quick matter to produce monthly or weekly payslips, and to do the end of year returns, which is how we manage to keep our costs so low.

You can decide the best way of informing us of your employees working hours: 

  • If the hours are always the same we can set things up so that we automatically produce the payslips, unless you contact us to tell us something is different.
  • You can phone or email us with the hours for a regular pay period.
  • You can simply let us know when someone works for you and we will produce the payslips accordingly.

 
The Nasty Bits

We are able to deal with the tax office on your behalf and keep all the necessary records including:

Income Tax and National Insurance
Statutory Sick Pay
Statutory Maternity Pay
Holiday Pay

We can also complete the necessary year end returns and submit them on line to the tax office.

We will send you payslips showing clearly how much you need to pay your staff, and also tell you how much to pay to the tax office. We can do this by post or email.

Our Banking Service

And if you don’t want the fuss of sorting out the payments to your staff and the tax office, you can give us one payment each month and we will make the separate payments on your behalf. If you receive a Direct Payment or Independent Living Fund you might even be able to get the funds paid directly to us.
