Yes. A payroll system that is FREE.

For businesses that employ up to 10 staff, the HMRC operate a free payroll system.

We recommend startups use this system: it saves you money, saves you the pain of running alternative accounting systems and the payroll systems they require you to use (they say, for simplicity!!!).

Go to the HMRC web site 

  1. Set up your business as an employer (you will have to do this what ever system you use). 
  2. When you log on as the employer, you will be able to register for PAYE payroll.

The HMRC system works. It is slightly slow, and a bit cumbersome. But it is free. 
The HMRC helpline is also free.
