PAYE intermediaries provide payroll services to employers. If you provide a PAYE intermediary with gross payment and other relevant information they are responsible for meeting your employer responsibilities.

The payroll subsidy is available for up to 5 employees from 1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020. It ends from 1 April 2020.
