New PAYE scheme

Just so you know, HMRC is planning to unveil the “biggest change to the way we process PAYE records in 25 years” in October of this year.

Under the scheme, the PAYE Service will bring together a dozen different databases covering information about individuals and, in theory, will be able to see at a glance what each person’s tax position is. At the moment, records are held with reference to employers so if, for example, someone has two jobs, their tax position is immediately complicated. HMRC says: “As a result of the change we will have a more comprehensive view of the individual’s PAYE and you will benefit from having fewer queries from both HMRC and your employees”.

The new system (called National Insurance Recording System 2) aims to make administration simpler – watch this space.
