Deadline looming for employers

The deadline is looming for UK employers to get their 2011/12 annual returns to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).

Employer Annual Returns which provide information on employee’s tax and national insurance deductions during the tax year, must be sent online to HMRC by 19th May.

HMRC has written to all employers who haven’t sent their return, to remind them to file on time and that, if they file the return late, they will be charged a penalty of £100 per 50 employers for each month or part month that the return is outstanding.

Employers who are not registered for online filing need to sign up as a matter of urgency for HMRC’s PAYE Online service.

The registration process only takes a few minutes, but employers won’t be able file online until they have activated the service using a code that HMRC sends in the post. This can take up to a week to arrive so it is recommended not to leave registration until the last minute.

Help is available from HMRC via its Employers Helpline on 08457 143 143 or online at
