Employer Bulletin - October 2019

16 October 2019

The latest edition of the Employer Bulletin was published by HMRC today and can be located here.


The bulletin is published on a bi-monthly basis and provides essential information surrounding payroll topics. The CIPP recommends that payroll professionals or those with an interest in payroll read the document in its entirety to ensure that they are aware of any legislative changes that have been announced.


The current issue discusses the calculation of tax liabilities on Post-Employment Notice Pay (PENP) for Termination Awards, which has previously been raised as an issue as the figures can vary depending on the year in which the notice has been given.
