Debt and return pursuit: PAYE: introduction to PAYE: payments: payment methods
Employers can make PAYE payments by a variety of payment methods to HMRC. Guidance for employers can be found on the HMRC website.
Payments are sent as a single combined amount of tax (including CIS and Student Loan Deductions) and NIC Class 1. BROCS then splits the payments into separate tax and NIC Class 1 amounts and posts these to the employer’s record.
