What is payday filing?

Payday filing was introduced in 2019 as a compulsory new way of reporting employment information that requires employers to submit PAYE information to Inland Revenue within two days of paying staff.

PayHero integrates with Inland Revenue so payday filing is automatically completed with each pay run.
