Hi Rafal

Can't help with any suggestions but avoid Shaw Academy, who offer a free 4 week trial. A quick Google or Trustpilot reviews will reveal why.

I can suggest to search for bookkeeping master videos on you{r }tube . He has a separate section on payroll which begins with rather basic things. You may look on to their web site - in the description. their video tutorials seemed useful for me.

This is not an advertisement.

If you are a professional/planning to offer payroll to the public do a proper recognised course, not one of these half baked short form ones. You should be fully competent before offering such services to clients.

I have already bought books from iab for level 1,2 and 3. As far as learning style I like when somebody talks to me therefore I am looking for udemy tutorials. I want to use my books together with video or audio tutorials.

Hi Rafapak,

I use Udemy all of the time but it can cost a bit before you find whats worth buying. Think that you did the right thing asking here even though I have no recomendations.

With Udemy the tutors are looking to publish once then have a cash cow. They're not going to be able to do that with subjects like Tax and Payroll which require regular updating so I would not expect to find good, current UK payroll or tax courses on there.

Even if you did find a suitable one, sometimes it's quite obvious that the tutors know nothing about the subject that they are attempting to teach and are simply reading from a script... On more than one occassion I have contacted tutors directly to tell them what they are getting wrong... Its bad when a student knows more than the tutor!

The IAB would as you say be a better bet but even with them, the course materials have to be completely up to date so last years books would be pretty useless.... You don't want to know the number of tax books that I have cluttering up my shelves that are now absolutely useless.

Good luck with your studies,

All the best,

Shaun.
