In the most recent Ex Pat forum minutes HMRC reported that part of the work of the Expats Unit had been relocated from Manchester to Bootle office and agents would soon be receiving correspondence from both offices.


In response to a question, HMRC confirmed that, now that the P86 is abolished, agents should send a letter when their clients return to the UK and that PAs should be reinstated. HMRC agreed to check that this is covered in PAYE and employer guidance.


It was pointed out that the HMRC website still referred to P86s even though they had been withdrawn.  HMRC agreed to look into this. They also confirmed that there would be no replacement for the P86.
