Paying PAYE

Pay as your Earn (PAYE) – Sounds simple yeah? You receive your payslip monthly, and your tax has magically been paid to the government. This isn’t the case – for Limited Company owners, paying PAYE can be a black hole.

Are you a sole trader, then you do not need to fret about PAYE, as your tax is filed out through your tax return at the end of the tax year.

Have you just set up a Limited Company or maybe you are considering setting up as Limited, then you must to file your PAYE through the Limited company.


Pay as you Easy (PAYE) is the process of paying Income tax and National Insurance (NI) directly to the government. All employee’s throughout the country must pay tax through there wages. The value of PAYE given to the government through someone’s wages very much depends on their total income.

Now the more complex part, if you own your Limited Company then you are actually an employee of the Limited Company. This means that you as the Director must pay PAYE from your wages (NOT DIVIDENDS!!). If you also have company employees, then PAYE must also be deducted from their wages.
