Paying Payroll Tax (PAYE)
You must pay your PAYE bill to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) by:
the 22nd of the next tax month if you pay monthly
the 22nd after the end of the quarter if you pay quarterly - for example, 22 July for the 6 April to 5 July quarter
What you’re paying
We will calculate your PAYE bill which may include:
employee Income Tax deductions
Student Loan repayments
Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) deductions
your Apprenticeship Levy payments (starting from April 2017) if you, or employers you’re connected to, have an annual pay bill of more than £3 million
You pay your Class 1A National Insurance on work benefits that you give to your employees separately.
PAYE Settlement Agreements are also paid separately.
Pay by bank transfer
You need to visit your bank’s website, app or branch and use HMRC’s banking details to pay by bank transfer.
How long it takes
Faster Payments will usually reach HMRC the same or next day, including weekends and bank holidays.
CHAPS payments usually reach HMRC the same working day if you pay within your bank’s processing times.
Bacs payments usually take 3 working days.
