It's all done via RTI and CIS submissions to HMRC. Provided that they are done correctly, it should be automatic.

It is all done by your Payroll software.

You claim the tax he has paid and then offset it against the PAYE liability and CIS liability of the staff.

Out of interest which one do you use?

Any questions, please do feel free to ask.
