HMRC Employer Bulletin: October 2018

12 October 2018

The latest Employer Bulletin is now available and includes confirmation that individuals who have been identified by HMRC as Welsh taxpayers will receive a Notification letter in November informing them of their Welsh taxpayer status.

It is important that HMRC is notified of any change of address to ensure that customers receive their notification letter. Please encourage your employees to check that HMRC has their correct address by registering and logging onto their Personal Tax Account

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

The Bulletin is packed full of useful reminders and interesting articles on subjects that we may ‘think we know all there is to know’ – it is always worth taking a little time out of your busy schedule to read through the bulletin just to make sure.
