Hi Mireille Goevelinger,
Please visit:

For information on this, you can only add up to 9 employees to basic PAYE tools.
Thank you.

Thank you, but I have been using the system since 2017 and have currently 12 staff enrolled and the system tells me I can go up to 15. I would need that extended to 20 or will have to look for a new payroll supplier. Would it be possible to add more employees to our current BASIC PAYE PAYROll.

There may be certain circumstances where you can add up to 15 employers, however this is a maximum.
If you employees exceed this you may need to look into another software.
