Clergy payroll

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


If you need to contact us on Wednesday 28 August please email us ([email protected]) as we are unable to accept phone calls.

The 2019 HLC Annual Return Form is now available on MyView. We have contacted all clergy who need to complete this form.  For more information please see our HLC annual return page.

The P60s and P11Ds for 2018/19 have been sent and are also available on MyView.  If you have opted out of paper stipend documents, you won't receive a paper copy but will be notified once it is available on MyView. For help completing your tax return please see our Ministers of Religion tax return page.
