Muras Matters: PAYE Code Notices Delayed

PAYE Code Notices Delayed


Last week HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) issued a warning to employers of problems with its online PAYE service, which include failure to supply employers with this year’s tax code notices, and instances where PAYE accounts are not showing the latest position

The employees affected by this issue have now been identified by HMRC, and tax code notices have been sent out, which provide details for an individual, in cases where the employer did not receive an annual tax code notice update before the start of the 2018/2019 tax year. As a result, employers may see an increase in employee tax code notices dated 11 July 2018.

Additionally, HMRC has revealed that it is aware some PAYE accounts are not showing the latest position. HMRC is currently investigating this urgently and will publish an update when the issue has been resolved.

Employers who believe that their account is incorrect and wish to check the current position, are advised by HMRC to contact the employer helpline on 0300 200 3200. Further details can be obtained here HMRC employer helpline.

If you need any advice or assistance with your PAYE account or PAYE code notices or alternatively would like to discuss any of the issues above please contact our Tax Director Jenny Marks.
