New PAYE Checklist

The starter checklist is used by employers to notify when an employee commences employment with that employer.

It contains all the personal information to enable that employee to be processed through the payroll and is used to allocate a tax code if an employee commences without a P45 from the previous employment.

The starter checklist is also used by employers to calculate student loan deductions. The introduction of Postgraduate Loans, alongside Student Loan Plan 1 and Student Loan Plan 2 has necessitated the change.

From 6 April 2019, please ensure that you use the correct Starter Checklist.

We tempted Paul over from the ‘dark side’ where he was a Tax Inspector for HMRC and managed a team of 12 PAYE investigators. After all who better to understand the demands of HMRC than an ex Tax Inspector? Since leaving HMRC, he has successfully represented clients when HMRC undertake PAYE and tax investigations.
