As an employer, you'll have to deduct tax and NICs from your employees' pay each pay period and pay Employer's Class 1 NICs if they earn above a certain threshold. You pay these amounts to HMRC monthly or quarterly. If you don't send the correct amount, or if you send it in late, you may have to pay interest. After the end of the tax year you must send HMRC an Employer Annual Return (form P35 and forms P14). Almost all employers are required to send this online.

Pay as you earn (PAYE) is an regular and important task for employers, if you are an employer and paying wages and salaries over certain limit you have some responsibilities and duties to fulfil on regular basis.

If you pay tax on your earnings or pensions through PAYE (Pay As You Earn) your employer or pension provider deducts tax on our behalf and you won't usually need to complete a tax return. In these cases we'll normally also ask them to use the PAYE system to deduct any tax you may owe on a State Pension or other taxable income (eg investment or rental income) up to a certain level.

But if you have more complicated tax affairs you may need to complete a tax return. There are also certain circumstances in which you will always need to complete a tax return - for example if you're self-employed, a company director or a trustee or if you have foreign income.

Preparation and filing a tax return can be a painful exercise even if there are few transaction and entries to make. When the January self assessment filing deadline approaches the stress levels will rise even further!
