The latest Quick Poll is now available on the CIPP’s news page. The CIPP want to know if you believe that employers and employees would benefit from the inclusion of student loan and postgraduate loan plan types on P45 forms, particularly during the new starter process.

Is the P45 a diminishing form or does it just need some tender-loving-care? Currently the P45 form only has a box where an ‘X’ is marked if student loan deductions for a new starter are to continue from the previous employer. With postgraduate loans and different types of plans for student loans, will employers and employees benefit from the P45 form allowing indication of these. Having this potential feature on the P45 form, can aid in ensuring employees are on the correct plan type, reduce payroll errors, lessen the administration burdens for employees / employers, reduce contact with HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and also speed up the new starter process for an employer / agent.

Have your say and take part in the Quick Poll now. The Quick Poll should take less than a minute to respond to, and we would like to thank you in advance for your participation.
