As an employer running payroll, you need to:
- report to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) on the previous tax year (which ends on 5 April) and give your employees a P60
- prepare for the new tax year, which starts on 6 April
| What you need to do
|Send your final payroll report of the year
||On or before your employees’ payday
|Update employee payroll records
||From 6 April
|Update payroll software
||From 6 April (or earlier if the software provider asks you to)
|Give your employees a P60
||By 31 May
|Report employee expenses and benefits
||By 6 July
During paid leave, you and your employee carry on making pension contributions.
Maternity and other parental leave
You and your employee will continue to make pension contributions if they are getting paid during maternity leave.
If they are not getting paid, you as the employer will still have to make pension contributions in the first 26 weeks of their leave (‘Ordinary Maternity Leave’). You have to carry on making contributions afterwards if it’s in their contract. Check your workplace maternity policy.
