HMRC's Employer Bulletin

HMRC has just released the latest issue of their Employer Bulletin, it is published three times a year and its purpose is to give employers and agents the latest information on topics and issues that may affect them. 

The Employer Bulletin provides information on new procedures and initiatives that may be of interest and contains direct links to more detailed information, allowing you to explore topics further. Included in the latest bulletin HMRC us a summary of the Chancellor’s budget announcement to Parliament on 19 March, explaining how this may impact payroll obligations. The bulletin also provides information on the new Employment Allowance and how it can benefit you if you are business or a charity that pays Class 1 National Insurance Contributions on your employees' or directors' earnings. There is also information about the new tax-free childcare scheme that will be launched in autumn 2015. This has a no mandatory role for employers but may have an impact if you already operate an Employer Supported Childcare scheme.

The bulletins are so important that HMRC has now decided to post one every two months. For further information on the topics above or for the full employer bulletin see below.
