Delayed issue of P6 coding notices

16 March 2018

The following message has been published on the Pay As You Earn (PAYE): service availability and issues webpage on GOV.UK:

HMRC has experienced some technical difficulties issuing tax code notices and no P6 tax codes have been issued between Monday 12 March 2018 and Thursday 15 March 2018.

Any notices generated between these dates will be sent to employers/agents on Friday 16 March 2018 and if you have an email address for Data Provisioning Service (DPS) alerts, you will be alerted to these notices as normal. Although the email will be dated 16 March 2018, the data you are being alerted to could hold an issue date which is earlier.

HMRC apologise for the inconvenience this may cause.

HMRC would also like to remind employers that P6’s will not be automatically issued as we approach the end of the tax year.
