    What is PAYE fraud

    PAYE fraud is when an employer doesn’t pay Income Tax or National Insurance contributions on some or all of a worker’s pay to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).

    For example, they might:

    • pay part or all of someone’s pay ‘cash in hand’
    • not be registered as an employer with HMRC
    • deduct tax but not pay it to HMRC
