You must register as an employer if you pay either yourself or another worker a salary per month over the threshold amount. If you are paying yourself or other employees an amount under the employer threshold every month, there is no need to operate PAYE, and there is also no need to submit any monthly RTI returns to HMRC. If you meet the requirements for registration, you can complete the details online for HMRC to send you a tax office reference number and an employer reference number. These details are essential for completing RTI submissions and company payroll.
Advice For Employers Payroll Registration
You must register for payroll if you are employing someone, running a construction industry scheme, or paying yourself through a limited company as a director. As an employer, you have a duty to deduct proper tax and national insurance contribution and pay it to HMRC. You will also be liable to pay the national minimum wage and keep records of payroll and human resource files. With an increasing number of changes to payroll compliance by HMRC, employers must update themselves with the new laws coming into force in future. HMRC may make compliance visits to check if payroll records have been maintained, and proper tax and national insurance have been deducted and paid.

If a person already has 35 qualifying years or is likely to do so by the time that they reach state pension age, missing a year will not adversely affect their state pension entitlement.
