PAYE Manual

Employment maintenance: in-year forms and data capture: data capture initial screen

The data capture initial screen allows you to

  • Select which in-year form you want to capture
  • Record the date the form was received

The system will check that the PAYE reference number is valid before the form iscaptured. This avoids rejection after capture, due to the PAYE reference being incorrect,when the in- year form has already been discarded.

This process has the benefit of only needing to be performed once for each type of in-yearform received for the same PAYE reference number captured in succession.

For this reason, it is beneficial to organise in-year forms to be captured in PAYEreference and form type order (not alphabetical) to maximise the benefit.

Note: Each time a different type of in-year form is captured or the samein-year form is captured but for a different PAYE reference number, the DATA CAPTUREINITIAL screen has to be re-completed.
