Post Office TransCash service being withdrawn

24 October 2017

An update to the CWG5 (Class 1A National Insurance contributions on Benefits in Kind), acts as a reminder that payments through a Post Office to HMRC will only be allowed until 14 December 2017.

The methods by which HMRC will accept payments is changing. The Post Office Transcash service is to be withdrawn from 15 December 2017 so anyone still using this Transcash will need to arrange an alternative method.

The CWG5 has been updated to reflect the forthcoming change. You should use your Class 1A NICs payslip if you pay at a bank or Post Office or by cheque through the post. You can only pay at the Post Office until 14 December 2017 after this date the facility will be withdrawn.
