How to pay PAYE during 2011

HMRC are no longer sending out yellow payslip booklets to enable a company to pay its PAYE, instead they are issuing a letter reminding companies of the details needed in order to pay online.

PAYE can be paid monthly, or quarterly if your payments are under £1,500 per month on average.

A direct payment can be made to HMRC with the following details:


Account name:                                    HMRC Shipley

Account number:                                 12001020

Sort Code:                                            08-32-10

You will need your accounts office reference which will be similar to 049PG012345678.

If you are unsure of your reference, please contact us.

Each payment made will also need to include a reference that is specific to the month it relates to.

So for the quarter to 5th July 2011 you would use 049PG0123456781203.

The cleared funds must reach HMRC’s bank account by the 22nd of the month or quarter it relates to.  HMRC can charge interest and penalties if payments are late.

If no PAYE is due you must still inform HMRC, and you can do this online here:
