HMRC:-

Quote:
Check you need to pay someone through PAYE
You usually have to pay your employees through PAYE if they earn £120 or more a week (£520 a month or £6,240 a year).


County:-

Quote:
It is a legal requirement to pay the minimum wage to all of those entitled to it by the legislation. We would remind operators that our contract conditions specifically require Passenger Assistants (PAs) to be paid at least the minimum wage and that we reserve the right to require proof of payment of minimum wage to PAs. It is the operator’s responsibility to ensure that PAs are paid for all of their working time, which may extend beyond the periods that passengers are on board the vehicle.

Operators should also note that it is a breach of contract conditions to pay PAs via a driver. For clarity – all PAs must be employed by the operator and paid directly. Where we find instances of PAs either not being paid the minimum wage or being paid via a driver, compliance proceedings may result.

We would also like to take this opportunity to remind operators that we expect and require all staff to be engaged under written contracts – engaging staff under verbal contract only is not acceptable.

Anyone can register ass an employer. As for payroll we use Payroo and for 1 employee I think it is probably free and very easy to use. Don't also forget that if you do register as an employer you would also need to register for a pension scheme although your employee can opt out of contributions.
