Cintra iQ allows you to have more than one company (Employer) within a database. When creating a new Employer, you would enter the Main Details which are the contact details etc., enter the bank details HMRC payments are to come from, create the tax references and payrolls under each tax reference, flag if they are a small employer and record auto enrolment details such as staging date etc.

To create a PAYE scheme

  1. Navigate to the Employers Definition window. 
    Go to Cintra iQ: Payroll> Payroll Setup> Employer Setup.
  2. Click the New button. The New Employer form appears.
