Debt and return pursuit: PAYE: introduction to PAYE: annual returns: types of annual return and due dates

The P35

A P35 is an employer’s annual return of all employees and shows the amount of Tax/NIC and so on deducted that year. The majority of employers complete this type of return.

The P35 provides for the tax year the:

  • names of all employees and their deductions of Tax, NIC and Student Loans
  • total Statutory payments paid and advances received
  • CIS deductions suffered (limited company employers only).

The form, along with any employee forms (for example, P14s), are due by 19 May following the end of the tax year.

Other types of return

Certain employers may have to submit another type of return. This is dependent on the employer’s scheme type as follows.
