The new PAYE changes are set to affect employer annual returns and starter and leaver PAYE forms.
All information for employers of 50 employees or less as of April 2011 need to be sent online to HMRC, this includes; starter and leaver forms, P45’s,P46’s and pension information.
May 19th is now the deadline for filing and any that are filed later than this date will receive a penalty. In addition, any that are filed on paper rather than online will now also receive a penalty.
HMRC will also be issuing penalties in two new areas;
- Penalty notices will be issued in April to employers with 50 or more employees who have not filed starter and leaver forms online to HMRC.
- As of May this year penalties are to be sent out for late payment of PAYE, meaning employers will be liable for penalty if they haven’t made payment online or in full from April 2010.
