PAYE Settlement Agreements

Overview of PAYE Settlement Agreements: Taxed Award Schemes

Currently employers operating formal incentive award schemes can pay the tax/Class 1A NICs arising on behalf of their employees by entering into a Taxed Award Scheme (TAS).

Most awards under these schemes will be suitable for inclusion in a PSA should the employer wish to do so.

A third party who provides awards to the employees of another employer and who wishes to pay the employees tax/NICs bill cannot use a PSA. A TAS should be used instead. See PSA1110 for information about third party benefits.

All Taxed Award Schemes are held centrally at the address below (for internal use only)
