Pay as you earn (PAYE)

PAYE is the income tax deduction that an employer makes when paying salary to an employee. The tax is ‘deducted at source’ which means that the employer pays the amount over to HMRC so that the individual does not need to do so directly.

For employees whose only source of income is a salary it is not necessary to complete a self-assessment return with HMRC as all of their income tax is deducted. Even when there are other sources of income HMRC will often wish to collect this as a deduction against salary and they will then issue the employer with a different tax code to use. If your tax is paid in this way you will need to take care to ensure that HMRC have issued the correct code and are indeed deducting the correct amount of tax.

For employers a payroll scheme must be opened so that the PAYE due from employees’ salaries can be paid over to HMRC.

Opening and administering a payroll scheme is included in Integro Accounting’s fixed fee service: Fixed-fee service.
