Yesterday, April 17th, was a red letter day in the USA’s fiscal calendar. Tax Day, the deadline for Americans to file their tax returns, normally falls on April 15th. This year, with that date being on a Sunday and April 16th being celebrated as Emancipation Day in Washington, the deadline was pushed back.

Plenty of Americans left things to the last minute; as of last Friday, the Internal Revenue Service was still waiting for approximately 40 million people to make their submissions. As well as being tax deadline day, April 17th was also the last opportunity to make a contribution to an individual retirement account for it to count against 2017 income. All in all, American taxpayers had plenty to think about yesterday.

British taxpayers have records to keep and deadlines to meet, of course, but for the majority of them the week to week and month to month responsibility of payroll administration lies in the hands of their employers. The task of accurately remunerating employees and correctly enrolling them in pension schemes may not be glamorous but it’s absolutely business-critical. Workplace Pension reform compels employers to enrol their people into a suitable scheme, and failure to comply can land you in hot water with HMRC, not to mention testing the patience and loyalty of the people working for you.

With no room for error in payroll and pension administration, it’s flattering that so many household names put their trust in Jane Systems to get the job done.
