Running your payroll - for all employers

Some of these publications are designed for use by employers who are exempt from filing PAYE online or have not yet started to report PAYE in real time. Employers operating PAYE in real time may find some aspects of these booklets helpful as they are accurate for the purpose of operating payroll, but they have not been updated for reporting payroll information in real time.
