Payroll Frequently Asked Questions:
What are the different payroll group options?
PAYE tax is deducted from your wage each time you are paid. The amount of PAYE is determined by your tax code and National Insurance category. The tax code is determined by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) based on your expected income, tax allowances, exemptions and reliefs for the full tax year.
If you choose to work through your own Limited Company you will be responsible for paying your own taxes and you must ensure you are compliant with the IR-35 legislation.
For all the rules on IR35 post 6th April 2017 please visit https://www.gov.uk/guidance/ir35-find-out-if-it-applies or seek professional advice from your tax advisor or accountant.
Medical Professional Personnel Ltd have approved and vetted a number of Umbrella companies. Should you wish to be paid via an umbrella please contact us.
In some cases you can claim expenses through an umbrella company. However the expenses must be for business use only.
You mentioned Statutory Pay; does that mean I am eligible for Sick Pay or Maternity Pay?
Yes you are entitled to statutory rates of pay; subject to meeting certain criteria from HMRC:
Why am I on BR/0T for a tax code?
A BR Tax Code means you are getting taxed at 20% on your total Taxable income rather than receiving the £9,440 yearly Tax-Free Allowance. There are two reasons for this:

When do I have to have my Timesheet sent by?
Timesheets are to be faxed through to 033 3043 4313 or 033 3043 4190 by 8am Monday morning to ensure they are paid by Friday of the same week. Alternatively, they can be sent by post to be received by 8am Monday to the following address: Payroll- Nursing Personnel Level 10 Great West House (GW-1) Brentford, London TW8 9DF
When do I receive payment for these Timesheets?
We run our Pay-Cycle daily. In order to be paid, time-sheets must be received by Nursing Personnel before 08.00am, each day to be paid within two working days. It is the workers responsibility to ensure time-sheets are sent and received on time.
How do I send my timesheet? Timesheets can be sent by post to: Nursing Personnel
Great West House (GWH-1)
Timesheets can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or faxed to 033 3043 4313 or 033 3043 4190
How do I know if my Timesheet has been processed?
This can be easily found by logging on to on the Nurse Portal through Nursing Personnel's website. Once you have logged into your online account please click the Summary of Shifts Tab. Once here if there is a Green Tick next to the shift that means we have received and processed the timesheet you have sent through.
Why can't I call and check if my Timesheet has been received?
Faxed timesheets are actually not received in a Paper form rather in an electronic format. These are then sent individually to Payroll staff to process. This has dramatically improved processing time for Timesheets ensuring all timesheets sent by the cut-off will be paid. Our staff does not have access to check if timesheets are in the queue therefore unfortunately have no way of telling if your timesheet is received. The only thing calling staff will achieve is under-utilising valuable Payroll staff time which can be used to ensure your timesheet would be processed and paid. The best thing to do is send your timesheets well before the cut-off and checking your account on the website. Process time will be a lot quicker during non-peak periods, which are near the cut-off time, and therefore will appear on-line a lot sooner.
Where can I print more Timesheets?
These can be found in the Payroll Information Tab on the Nursing Personnel website.
What do I need filled on my timesheet?
