Practical experience of a PAYE merger

Does anyone have practical experience of doing a PAYE scheme merger.

Didn't find your answer?

Hi everyone,

I have a new client who has been operating two PAYE schemes after they bought a business some years ago. The two PAYE schemes are within the same limited company and only really represent different departments.

We are trying to streamline their processes and moving accounting software from two systems that currently process each department separately due to payroll and the way those running the business thought would be the best way to monitor each department.

The company only operates one VAT registration, so up to now, they have run the VAT100 report in each accounting software file, combined the two and submitted on the HMRC website.

MTD, moving to the cloud, and just simplifying the bookkeeping process for the client are meaning that I am looking to put the company into one accounting software file. The software I use does not allow for two PAYE schemes.


My question is really to ask whether anyone has any experience of merging PAYE schemes, problems to look out for, and any suggestions to make it as quick and simple a process as possible!

Thank you very much for any help you may be able to offer!
