Employer Bulletin – August 2019

14 August 2019

The latest Employer Bulletin is now available; a bi-monthly publication which provides employers and agents with the latest information on payroll topics.


The Bulletin includes confirmation that HMRC will not charge penalties automatically for 2019/20 provided a Full Payment Submission (FPS) is filed within 3 days of the payment date.


This newsletter from HMRC is always worth reading thoroughly as it is easy to miss something which may affect a new process or legislative change.
