July 30—A new Pay as You Earn (PAYE) scheme is to be launched in the next few weeks to provide better administration of pay to short term foreign visitors, an HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) official told Bloomberg BNA July 30.
The new PAYE scheme, the official said, is to be “for UK employers who have a PAYE obligation in relation to visitors from overseas branches or other companies,” and “limited to visitors who have no more than 30 U.K. workdays in the tax year.”
The HRMC action follows recommendations in a 2014 report by the government's Office of Tax Simplification and customer feedback, the official said.
