Pay Employer PAYE by Direct Debit

Charlotte Allen
September 1, 2022

From 19th September 2022, in response to customer feedback, employers will be able to pay PAYE by way of a new variable Direct Debit payment plan.

The service can be accessed through Pay employers’ PAYE or directly through the business tax account and the employers PAYE service.

N.B. Your accountant or payroll provider will not be able to set up, amend or cancel a direct debit, only you, the employer will be able to do this.

There will be changes to the business tax account and the employers’ liabilities and payments screens on the employers PAYE service. A new link ‘Set up a Direct Debit’ will be introduced and this will allow customers to set up a Direct Debit instruction, authorising HMRC to collect direct from their bank account based on their return submissions.

Following set up, the link will change to ‘Manage your Direct Debit’ and an employer will be able to view, change or cancel the Direct Debit online.

The facility to create, view, amend and cancel a Direct Debit is restricted to employers only, your accountant will not be able to do this on your behalf.

If signed up to variable payment plan, the following charges will be collected on receipt of the returns to HMRC:

  • Full Payment Submission
  • Employer Payment Summary
  • Construction Industry Scheme
  • Apprenticeship Levy
  • Class 1A National Insurance
  • Earlier Year Update
