What is the PAYE?

A Pay-As-You-Earn tax (PAYE) is a withholding tax on the income of employees. Amounts withheld are treated as advance payments of income tax due. They are refundable to the extent they exceed actual tax that will be determined during the submission of personal tax return of the employees.

Under the PAYE system, the employer calculates the tax burden of the employee and deducts the PAYE on a monthly basis.
