Employers still expected to meet May deadline

Employers may not receive their payslips in time for the month one PAYE payment cut-off, after HMRC failed to send 2013/14 booklets promptly.

Dispatch had been scheduled to be no later than 12 April, but a number of deliveries slipped to the 30th of the month. An estimated three-week lag time to reach recipients means some firms will have no slips in time for the 19 May’s deadline.

But employers affected by the delay will still be obliged to pay on time, announced the Revenue. The department will accept a cheque without an accompanying payslip if it is payable to HM Revenue & Customs and includes an accounts office reference.

An electronic settlement will also be accepted through BillPay, BACS or online banking. The HMRC accounts office reference should be included.
