By debit or corporate credit card online

You can pay online.

There’s a fee if you pay by corporate credit card. The fee is not refundable.

You cannot pay by personal credit card.

If you’re unable to pay your employers’ PAYE bill in full by card, you should use another payment method like a bank transfer.

Reference number

You’ll need to use your 13-character accounts office reference number as the payment reference. You can find this on the letter HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) sent you when you first registered as an employer.

How long it takes

Allow 3 working days for your payment to reach HMRC’s bank account.

Early or late payments

Make sure you enter the correct year and month the payment is for in the separate boxes provided.

Pay for the previous tax year

Select the previous tax year and ‘month 12’ for the last tax year. If you do not do this, your payment will go to the current tax year instead.
