HMRC has begun issuing GNS messages to employers

19 September 2014

Readers will recall the recent HMRC announcement explaining the plan to phase in the implementation of penalties for the late filing of PAYE information. The announcement confirmed that HMRC would issue electronic generic notification service (GNS) messages to all employers, to confirm when the new in-year penalties will apply them.

HMRC have now begun to issue these messages in stages to employers who have schemes of 50 or more employees. They say that employers do not need to contact them if they do not receive one immediately.
