Additional PAYE registration numbers

You may choose to have separate registration numbers for different groups of employees. For example, where you:

• have a number of branches, with each registered separately for Pay As You Earn (PAYE) (employees in each branch must be paid from that branch, not from head office)

• have separate wages records for different employee groups (for example, office and factory)

• pay an employee a salary and a pension

• are a limited company and wish to make PAYE, Pay Related Social Insurance (PRSI) and Universal Social Charge (USC) returns under a separate registration number for directors.
