Use this form if you are an employer using a Payroll intermediary to act on your behalf for your PAYE responsibilities.

Employers are able to voluntarily contract out their employer responsibilities to a Payroll intermediary.

A Payroll intermediary might include an existing payroll service provider, accountant or other tax professional who is able to offer and provide payroll services to an employer.

  • Payroll intermediary's IRD number
  • Employer's IRD number
