The objective of PAYE modernisation is to deliver Real Time Information (RTI) so that Revenue, employers and employees have up-to-date information relating to tax deductions and pay. This will improve the transparency and understanding of the PAYE system for all stakeholders. For example, this will ensure that the right tax deduction is made at the right time from the right employees and that employers pay over the correct tax deduction and contribution for every employee.
SMART PAYE sets out the key design principles of the project. The project will meet its objectives while also ensuring the benefits to all stakeholders by working to these principles.
