Clergy payroll

Payroll Services (Clergy Team) pay a stipend to most clergy and licensed layworkers in parochial appointments. We do not employ the clergy, but we are responsible for making statutory deductions in respect of PAYE tax and National Insurance.


If you have not yet completed your Annual HLC Return form for the year ending 31 March 2017 you will notice that your tax-free HLC allowance has been suspended.  If you are still entitled to receive the allowance it can be reinstated once you submit your form, for more information please see the Annual HLC Return 2017 page.  Forms received up to and including 11 January were processed in January, forms received up to and including 11 February will be processed in February.  An email reminder has been sent to everyone who still needs to compete their form with a final deadline of 28 February.
