The Isle of Man is an independent financial jurisdiction outside of the UK. If you employ staff in the Isle of Man you must remember that employer obligations in respect of tax and National Insurance are different to those operated in the UK.

It’s not just tax rates (which are considerably lower than in the UK) but the operation and documentation of PAYE, reporting and taxation of benefits in kind, and year end processing all have unique processes for employers to follow.

National Insurance is modelled on, but is not an exact mirror of, the UK scheme and again employers need to be able to ensure compliance with local rules.

Guernsey (encompassing Alderney and Herm) is an independent financial jurisdiction outside of the UK. If you employ staff in Guernsey you must remember that employer obligations in respect of tax and social insurance are different to those operated in the UK.

It’s not just tax rates (which are considerably lower than in the UK) but the operation and documentation of PAYE, reporting and taxation of benefits in kind, and in-year reporting all have unique processes for employers to follow.

Social Insurance is completely separate from the UK scheme, being much more closely aligned to the contributory principle in terms of coverage and benefits provided. Employers need to be able to ensure compliance with local rules.

"I have used The Learn Centre on a number of occasions and have found it provides a great platform to gain the knowledge required to carry out my job. I started off with the Payroll Technician course and this in-depth learning gave me a great foundation of payroll knowledge to build upon and give me the confidence to progress up the career ladder, well worth it and would certainly recommend, no matter what level you are at there will be a course/qualification that can help you."
