Payroll legislation has undergone a massive overhaul in recent years with the arrival of Real Time Information (RTI) and the current implementation period of Auto-Enrolment.
Generally speaking, your business must register for and submit returns for each pay run when you are paying someone over the Lower Earnings Limit (LEL). The LEL usually changes each tax year and you can find the current rates here.
Regardless of the LEL if you employ someone who has another job you must register for PAYE.
Auto-Enrolment applies to all employers whether they have only one or more employees. It requires that they provide and contribute to a pension scheme on behalf of their employees. You must comply by your Staging Date which varies for each employer. You can find your staging date here. Note that if you have two businesses with a PAYE Scheme you will have two separate Staging Dates.
Non-compliance with auto-enrolment regulations can leave you liable to severe penalties. Do not delay your preparation.
