Preface

It happens to almost every successful business owner. At some point in the growth of your business you realise that you can no longer go it alone. Most business owners are well aware of the problems and costs of employment, and will initially try to use outsourced support. If that works well for you, there’s no reason not to use it, though be careful about the over-use of so-called self-employed workers who clearly are not genuinely running their own business.

However there may well come a time when your business has expanded and it can’t be done on an outsourced basis. Then it’s time to think about employing someone. There are a wide variety of laws, obligations, taxes and statutory records that can trip you up when you don’t know what you’re dealing with.

Lack of knowledge is not a defence, so ensure you find out what you have to do at an early stage. It will save you time, money and worry. This book has been written with the intention of helping you to avoid these types of sticky situations. The real success of hiring your first employee lies in following the correct procedures, adhering to the requirements of legislation and taking action at an early stage.
