Agents Talking Points meetings for August

7 Aug 2017

"HMRC are conducting research with businesses who have previously submitted a PAYE Settlement Agreement (PSA) either for themselves or on behalf of their clients.

A PSA is an easement under which employers can settle their employees‚ income tax liabilities for certain benefits and expenses in a single payment, removing the need for a P11D to cover these liabilities for each employee.

Our research will inform a new project to simplify the PSA process and the guidance HMRC will provide in time for the 18/19 tax year.

We are really interested in speaking to people within your organisation who compile the information required for a PSA, and then make the PSA submission to better understand:

Your input at this early stage will help us make the service as usable and useful as possible.

If you are interested in finding out more about the project, please email john.berry [at] hmrc.gsi.gov.uk or jon.houghton [at] digital.hmrc.gov.uk."
