Expat Forum Information - The Pensions Regulator (TPR) and modified PAYE schemes

19 November 2015

HMRC have circulated an update through the Expat Forum regarding contact from TPR to some individuals in modified PAYE schemes.

“We understand that some individuals in modified PAYE schemes have received letters from The Pensions Regulator regarding auto enrolment.

We have been advised that where a letter is received, if this is not dealt with, The Pensions Regulator will continue to contact employers.

Therefore, where a letter is received and auto enrolment is not appropriate, de-registration from The Regulators systems will be required to stop further contact on this issue from them.

An online form is available for de-registration however, upon checking, it appears that none of the reasons offered on the form, are appropriate for modified PAYE schemes.

Therefore, you will have to either email the Pensions Regulator at customersupport@autoenrol.tpr.gov.uk or telephone them on 0845 600 1011.

You will need to provide the PAYE reference and letter code.”

The CIPP represent members and the payroll profession at the Joint Forum on Expatriate Tax and National Insurance Contributions and the most recent minutes of the meeting held on 25 August 2015 have been published at GOV.UK. The joint forum is a sub group of the Employment and Payroll Group.
