This API is one of a number of APIs that provide information that HMRC knows about an individual's tax affairs.

This API in particular provides information about an individual's history of employment for a given tax year, as reported to HMRC by their employer(s) through the PAYE process. The history of employment mainly contains details like Employer Paye Reference, Employer's name and Off Payroll Workflag (if available).

The primary intended use for this information is to pre-populate an individual's Self Assessment tax return.



You can use the sandbox environment to test this API.

It supports stateful behaviour. You can set up test data using the Individual PAYE Test Support API.



The way we show Individual Employment API v1.2 endpoints has changed, which might look different to other Developer Hub APIs.

The API has not changed. You do not need to make any updates to your application if you already use this API.
