Resolution

The HMRC use their tax calendar to break payroll dates into tax weeks/months. This calendar is fixed and does not change year on year. The tax week/month is always based on the pay date for the period, eg. when the employee actually gets their pay.

• Tax Months always start on the 6th and run to the following 5th eg. Tax Month 1 – 6th April – 5th May

• Tax week 1 starts on the 6th April and runs to 12th April, subsequent weeks run on from that date.

• If you run a 2-weekly payroll you will always process with the 2nd week’s number eg. week 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, etc.

• If you run a 4-weekly payroll you will always process with the 4th week’s number eg. week 4,8,12,16,20, etc.
