I have a client we run payroll for. They want to separate two employees and deal with their payroll themselves, rather than incur more fees (it's a small charity so pennies count) but HMRC have told them they can only segregate them with effect from April by completing a form PC50 - they were told they cannot open a second PAYE scheme. We would therefore have to include them in our main payroll until April when they would take over.
I've seen many times where a duplicate paye scheme had to be closed, so how can that be if HMRC won't allow us to set up a second scheme?
All advice welcome, thank you
