You are legally required to let HMRC know that you are employing staff so you can be Registered as an Employer and you will be able to process payroll for your employees. Your registration needs to be in advance of your first Pay Day.
Once your PAYE registration is approved you will receive:
- An Accounts Office Reference
- An Employer Reference Number (ERN)
With these two references numbers, you will be able to set up a payroll system, produce payslips and send reports to HMRC about your employees and their pay/deductions.
