PAYE Notices are Coming

Newsletter issue - April 2011.

The Tax Office has started to issue electronic PAYE code notices (forms P9) to employers for 2011/12. If you have provided an email address for the Tax Office to contact you concerning PAYE matters, you should receive an email to inform you that new PAYE codes have been issued for your employees.

To view the PAYE codes you need to log on to the PAYE online service on the HMRC website (or through your Payroll software), and choose the option required (e.g. tax code notices). Change the option 'tax year' from 'current' to 2011/12 to see the notices for 2011/12.

Remember you can be held liable for under-deducted tax if an incorrect PAYE code is applied to your employee's wages, or a PAYE code is applied incorrectly.

If you have a large number of tax code notices to manage you may want to use the HMRC tool: PAYE Desktop Viewer (PDV). This is a free HMRC tool that allows you to search and sort tax codes, notifications and other reminders.
