Overview of PAYE Settlement Agreements


Currently employers operating formal incentive award schemes can pay the tax/Class 1ANICs 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 theemployer wish to do so.

A third party who provides awards to the employees of another employer and who wishes topay 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
