PAYE Advice in Ayr IDS + Co

Pay As You Earn (PAYE) is a system overseen by HMRC, under which employers deduct from employees' wages, salaries, pensions, etc, an amount of income tax and national insurance contributions (NICs) in accordance with PAYE codes, tables and other instructions and procedures laid down by HMRC.

Employers are legally obliged to operate PAYE if their employees' earnings reach the NI lower earnings limit. Operating PAYE can be a complicated process, which involves:

  • Calculating and deducting PAYE income tax from employees' pay
  • Deducting employee Class 1 national insurance contributions (NICs)
  • Showing tax and NIC deductions on an employee's payslip
  • Paying employer Class 1 NICs to HM Revenue & Customs
  • Recording deductions
  • Paying the deductions to HMRC within set time limits

Starting up in business?

As soon as you take on an employee, you need to contact HMRC and ask them to set up a PAYE scheme for you/your business. Upon registration, HMRC will send you guidelines, including a number of forms with which to operate the PAYE and NICs system.

This may seem complicated, and indeed operating a PAYE scheme can be difficult. IDS + Co in Ayr can help to save you time and by looking after your PAYE records for you.
