Employment and Payroll Group to be jointly chaired by HMRC and CIPP

26 November 2014

HMRC have confirmed the establishment of the new Employment and Payroll Group (EPG), which will subsume the existing Employment Consultation Forum (ECF) and two other groups. It will be jointly chaired by HMRC and the CIPP.

The announcement explains that the new forum

· will be made up of employer and payroll representative bodies, software developers, employers (small and large) and payroll bureaux

· will be the primary route through which HMRC, and other government departments, engage with the employment and payroll community about big PAYE operational issues.
