Employers must register before April changes

HMRC have issued a reminder to large employers about important PAYE changes coming into effect next year.

From 6 April 2009, firms with 50 or more employees must submit the following in-year PAYE information online:

  • Form P45(1) - details of employee leaving
  • Form P45(3) - new employee details
  • Form P46 - employee without a form P45
  • Similar information for people receiving a pension

To file online, employees must first register with the Revenue's online service: click on PAYE for Employers under the Do it Online menu.

Once registered, there are a number of methods by which to file:

  • HMRC's free Online Returns and Forms software.
  • Commercial payroll software.
  • Electronic Data Interchange, a secure phone line suitable for large numbers of forms.
  • A Revenue payroll agent or bureau can do it on an employer's behalf.
