PAYE Registration

Do you plan on hiring employees for your UK company or business? To begin, you must first register for PAYE (Pay As You Earn). The company's director must also register as an employer before he/she can become the company's director. In this way, income taxes are deducted from employees' salaries before they are paid. 

It is important to register for PAYE before the first payday. Do remember that it can take up to 15 working days to receive your employer's PAYE reference number, so plan accordingly. PAYE must be registered within two months before payments are made to employees. If you need to make payments to an employee before receiving your employer's PAYE reference number, you should run payroll and store your full payment submission. You can then make a late payment submission to HMRC. If you need to register as an employer, Affotax can help you - get a quote now!
