Lets say the payment date for salary in April 2023 is on the 30th April 2023, should I file the payment of the 5 days (1-5 April) to tax year 2022-2023 or file the payment of the whole month of April to the tax year 2023-2024?

You would declare it in 23-24.

Hi MJ K,
Assuming you are paid monthly, then all your April salary falls into the new tax year 23/24 and is not apportioned.
Some people are paid weekly and as such may receive a paytment prior to 5 April the last day of the tax year for 22/23. 
Tax months also run from the 6 of the month to the following 5 of the month for example.
Tax month 01- 6 April - 5 May 
Tax month 02 - 6 May - 5 June. 
Thank you.
