Hi,

If you are employing staff, you must tell HM Revenue and Customs by registering as an employer - you can do this up to 4 weeks before you pay your new staff. This is regardless of the amount they will earn. More information can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/employing-staff and https://www.gov.uk/register-employer

You will be able to claim expenses on staff salaries, amongst other things, with more information found here: https://www.gov.uk/expenses-if-youre-self-employed/staff

If you would like more detailed advice please reply with some more information on your circumstances.

Thank you
