When should a limited company register for PAYE?

A company has to register for PAYE when any one of the following applies:

  • Salary payments are made to employees/directors at or above the LEL (lower earnings limit) - LEL for the 13/14 personal tax year is £109 per week or £473 per month; or
  • Salary payments are made to employees/directors who also have earnings from other employments (including pensions); or
  • Employees/directors get benefits; or
  • The company intends to claim a refund of CIS deductions.

Your persistence is very useful and restricted. Focus your energy on actions which provide immediate value to your company. Procedures shown at Dissertation Writing Service such as pay-roll are extremely time-consuming however they do not add a immediate benefit your company when conducted as an in-house function.
