Direct Payments

If you would like to take control of your support service instead of having it arranged for you, then direct payments may be for you. You can choose to take all or part of your personal budget to manage for yourself and arrange your own care services. The money you choose to use from your personal budget is called a direct payment.

Direct Payments Payroll Service

Hull CVS on behalf of Hull City Council provides a payroll service to individuals who receive a direct payment for their care needs.

A personal budget is an amount of funding paid to you from adult social care which you can spend on the services and support you need to help you live more independently. You can use the money to buy services from the council, from other providers, or both. You can choose to take all or part of your personal budget to manage for yourself and arrange your own care services. The money you choose to use from your personal budget is called a direct payment.

It may be that employing an agency worker or a personal assistant to support you with your care needs is most appropriate for you. If you do not know who you would like to employ, an organisation called Choices and Rights will provide the help for you. They have a list of personal assistants (PAs) and will help you recruit someone. This will include arranging a DBS check (disclosure and barring service), helping you take up references if you wish, and helping you set up insurance.

Hull CVS provides the part of the package that enables you to be an employer of a personal assistant, but relieves you of the administration of the payroll. Our service includes:

  • Calculation of monthly salary payments include PAYE and National Insurance.
  • Calculation of other statutory payments including Statutory Sick Pay, Statutory Maternity Pay and Statutory Paternity Pay.
  • Paying over of HM Revenue and Customs payments and keeping relevant records in order to process year end returns.
  • Production of employee’s payslips and summary sheets for the organisation showing all payments due, including payments to the HM Revenue and Customs.

For further information please contact one of our payroll team on 01482 324474 or email payroll@hull-cvs.co.uk.
