New P45 Form Design – HMRC publishes revised specificationMonday, October 27th, 2008
In response to concerns raised by payroll software developers about the font sizes specified for the A4-size plain-paper P45 that comes into use from the end of October, HMRC has published a revised detailed specification for the benefit of payroll software developers. There is no change to the layout of the form, only a relaxation to the font sizes that may be used. A further revision to the specification is also being prepared to make the plain-paper P45 identical in all respects with the pre-printed versions. As a result of these revisions, some payroll systems will not be ready to provide the facility for employers to print out their own P45s until December or later.
