Don’t forget that there are three other CIPP surveys on the go at the moment. You can view them all on the consultation survey page of the CIPP website.

HMRC stakeholder updates

23 June 2014

HMRC latest weekly update includes an announcement that these weekly updates are no longer to be issued:

This is the final issue of the HMRC Weekly Update. Over the last few months the Weekly Update has mainly consisted of a round up of some of the messages already published on the ‘What’s new’ pages of HMRC’s website. As this information is already available and HMRC now publish the Employer Bulletin on a bi-monthly basis instead of three times per year, a decision has been made to withdraw the weekly update. If however any issues or changes arise which key stakeholders should be notified about, HMRC will continue to contact stakeholders direct and the CIPP will keep the profession updated accordingly. 2013/14 Interim penalty warning letter A number of employers have incorrectly been sent an interim penalty warning letter when they have, in fact, submitted all of their RTI returns for 2013/14. Most of the letters that have been issued inappropriately relate to employers who have sent in Employer Payment Summaries (EPS). If you or your client has received a warning letter and you have successfully filed all of your returns, you do not need to take any further action. We apologise for the inconvenience caused and are taking urgent steps to rectify the situation. All of the records impacted by this issue will be updated and a penalty will not be charged. End of Year Expenses and Benefits iForm The new online End of Year Expenses and Benefits iForm is now available to download and make expenses and benefits returns for 2013-14 if you have 150 employee forms P11D/P9D or less to submit. It can also be used to amend a P11D, or a P9D, that’s already been submitted for 2013-14. The iForm also includes the functionality to complete form P11D(b) only, but this must be printed off and posted to HMRC. To download the iForm, or for further information, please go to our website

All Forms P11D(b) and P11D forms must be submitted to HMRC by 6 July.

Employer Bulletin 48 Issue 48 of the Employer Bulletin is now available. Aimed at employers and agents, it contains important information and news about topics which may affect payroll obligations to HMRC.

IR35 intermediaries legislation The IR35 FAQs have been replaced with updated guidance
