PAYE Employer Annual Return
The deadline for employers to submit 2009/10 PAYE annual returns is fast approaching. The Return, including a P14 for each individual employee and a P35 summarising the entire workforce, must be filed by 19 May 2010.
HMRC have now introduced a new online facility for employers who wish to advise HMRC that they have no PAYE annual return to file. Previously this had to be done in writing or by telephone. The new system allows users to receive an immediate acknowledgement email that a submission has been received. HMRC will also send a further email when the request has been processed to confirm that no annual return is required.
From this year almost all employers have to file annual and in year forms online. Employers with a nil return may continue to advise HMRC in writing or by telephone if they prefer.
