Employee share schemes – administrative changes
HMRC have transferred the administrative work of the Employee Shares & Securities Unit (ESSU) from London to Nottingham. From 6 April 2010 a new centralised team will handle all agent registrations relating to self assessment and PAYE.
The new address details are as follows:
Charity Assets and Residence
Employee Shares & Securities Unit
1st Floor, Ferrers House
Castle Meadow Road
HMRC have requested that 2009-10 annual returns should be submitted to the new Nottingham address and not to the London address printed on the return.
HMRC have also withdrawn the online facility to file annual share scheme returns on 1 April 2010. The annual share scheme returns can only be submitted in paper format using the prescribed form and will not be accepted on any electronic format.
