HMRC PAYE Payment Details
How to pay your PAYE bill
When to pay
You must pay your PAYE bill to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) by:
- the 22nd of the next tax month if you pay monthly
- the 22nd after the end of the quarter if you pay quarterly – for example, 22 July for the 6 April to 5 July quarter
Ways to pay
Other ways to pay include cheque and direct debit, but these take 3 working days to clear. New direct debits set up take 5 working days to clear. Please be aware that if the deadline falls on a weekend or bank holiday then the payment needs to reach HMRC on the previous working day.
As there may be unexpected issues with payment providers, especially at peak times, we would recommend payments are made well in advance of any deadline.

Accounts Office Reference
You’ll need to use your 13-character accounts office reference number as the payment reference. You can find this on either:
- the letter HMRC sent you when you first registered as an employer.
- the front of your payment booklet or the letter from HMRC that replaced it
Your payment may be delayed if you use the wrong reference number.
