    We have a new starter this month, a casual worker just doing a few hours this month and next. So far 21 hours this month and probably the same next month.

    Do I set him up on payroll like a normal new starter and get him to complete a New Starter Checklist etc? I have read up various comments on casual workers and not too sure where to go with this.

    Any advice appreciated.

    I would have said yes they need to be on payroll otherwise good old HMRC maybe become interested in you. However I am no expert and I am sure our HR experts will have a much more informed view on this.

    Get the New Starter checklist completed. Do you employ other staff on payroll? If so, the casual worker must be on payroll. If you do not currently run payroll the decision is based on the checklist.
