A salary advance is a payment made to an employee before their regular payday, usually to cover unexpected expenses or financial difficulties. They are now reported using the usual PAYE RTI system as part of the amount paid on their normal payday.

"It means less paperwork and admin for payroll professionals!"

Additionally, the relaxed rules only apply to salary advances, not to loans or other forms of financial assistance provided by employers. It's crucial to carefully review the nature of any financial assistance you offer to an employee to ensure the size or timing of the advance doesn't look like a loan.

Always ensure any salary advance falls within the scope of the new rules so it's important to stay informed and communicate these changes to your employees in order to ensure compliance and maximise the benefits of the new rules.

Until next time ...
