The Compact Payroll Reference Book

The Compact Payroll Reference Book now owned by the CIPP has become yet another incredible membership benefit for associate, full, fellow and Chartered Members.

Ownership of this book sets us further apart in comparison to any other organisation, as your Chartered body for payroll, it is our duty to provide you with all the payroll essentials. This is exactly what we are expanding on with the ownership of this book, known as the 'Payroll Bible.'  

What does the book cover?

The Compact Payroll Reference Book includes current tax and National Insurance tables together with as much information as is likely to be required during the tax year.

The book also contains many historical tables and information enabling reference back up to 20 years. The Compact Payroll Reference Book aims to provide as much information as possible in one volume. It includes definitions and up to date information about statutory deductions, statutory payments and state benefits.

It is arranged into four parts:

Dates, definitions and obligations
National Insurance
Statutory payments and state benefits

Also included in the book are guidelines, details of helplines and publications as well as appendices covering useful addresses, websites, forms, student loan tables and leaflets. The appendices also include the 2016-2017 tax tables and National Insurance tables.

CIPP tax pack

Associate, full, fellow and Chartered Members will be sent the book as part of a tax pack free of charge which will be sent out to members from the 1 May 2019.
