HMRC Agent Update 44 issued

22 October 2014

The 44th issue of the Agent Update publication is filled with useful reminders and news items of interest to agents and bureaux – and maybe to others as well.

The latest update includes news about a number of issues highlighted in “Working Together” discussions, including

· the treatment of expenses reportable on the P11D but covered by an employee’s Section 336 claim

· misalignment between the SA and PAYE systems

· the successful outcome of the pilot to use SA returns to prevent over-repayment of student loans, now becoming business as usual.

In addition there are updates on several PAYE topics, and news of improvements to HMRC’s “Intelligent Telephony” software which is designed to enable telephone callers to be quickly directed to the right adviser.
