What happens when your payroll is not normal?

If your business has a regular payroll, it will be getting used to the idea of making regular monthly payments of Income Tax and National Insurance to the Revenue. But what if your payroll is not normal? Employers still have to do the exercise and “make a monthly remittance” of PAYE even when it’s NIL!

We do this routinely for a number of our clients, and we use the Revenue’s on line facility to notify the Collector of Taxes of a NIL remittance. Only sometimes it doesn’t work properly. And when that happens, all of our clients seem to get PAYE reminders. That happened this year in for the payroll month of May which runs from 6 May to 5 June. The reminders went out in July!

We have just updated the Revenue system for the period 6 July to 5 August 2009. If our submissions are correctly logged, there should be no PAYE reminders. If you do get one, please let us know. Thanks.
