What is a PAYE Scheme?

All employers in the UK operate a PAYE Scheme for their employees (typically run on a monthly basis).

The scheme is run in line with UK tax years (6 April to 5 April the following year), taking account of the PAYE regulations, subjecting taxable pay to tax and national insurance (social security/insurance) at source. The employer will pay the ‘net’ resulting salary to the employee, and the national insurance (NI) and tax calculated will be paid direct to HM Revenue & Customs (the government authority responsible for collecting tax and NI contributions).
