HMRC are at long last coming into the twenty first century to a certain extent as they plan to introduce the capability for employers to set up recurring direct debit payments for PAYE.
Currently employers can only set up a direct debit to collect a single PAYE payment, unlike for VAT whereby they have long had the opportunity to set up recurring direct debit payments.
When can we start making PAYE payments by recurring direct debit?
HMRC tell us that the capability will be available from mid September this year
How will we set up a recurring direct debit PAYE payment?
Once this new payment capability has been introduced, the Business Tax Account service will be updated with changes to the Employers’ liabilities and payment screens.
This will include a new link to ‘set up direct debit’. Once you have successfully set up your direct debit, you will be able to view, change or cancel this through your online Business Tax Account at any time.
