Afternoon all, I might be having a Friday afternoon moment here.....

A new client of mine has just set up a company and has received a letter from HMRC telling him he might meed to set up a PAYE scheme. He and his wife are the only directors of the company and there are no employees. He will be paid at a level so he's under the limits but gets his NI credits etc. My query is this, does he need to register as a PAYE scheme? My brain is buzzing and I can't seem to extract the correct info!!

If it makes a difference he also has an LLP which makes no profit and pays no salary or anything to him. The thing which might mean he has to is that he might be being made redundant before the end of the current tax year from his old job, which he is currently on a sabbatical from.

Thought anyone? Think I should have started my weekend at lunchtime this week :-)

    Hi

    You need to register for a PAYE scheme as the earnings are above the LEL (Lower earnings limit).

    You may want to also consider the special rules when an director is appointed during the year with regard to NIC.

    Hope this helps

    Hi there just to confirm what you have already been told above, you do have to register as the earnings are at the LEL level. but if they are just literally at the 0% rate and therefore nothing to pay to HMRC then you need to file a nil declaration once a quarter, to stop HMRC sending you any letters about overdue deductions. At year payroll year end you will also have to file a P35. Hope this helps :)
