How to add a new employee with no P45 to payroll

This article explains what to do if you hire an employee who doesn't have a P45.

First, follow the guidance outlined on HMRC's website and use their starter checklist to select the correct starting declaration when creating a payroll profile for the new employee.

Next, when you receive the employee's P45, you'll need to edit the payroll profile for that employee.

Make sure that you enter the employee's updated tax code as well as the total pay and tax in previous employment for this tax year. When you submit the following month's payroll, the year-to-date figures will be recalculated automatically.
