Introduction to Newsletter 07.04.10Wednesday, April 7th, 2010
There seemed to be no surprises in the Government’s updated regulatory change programme, but it clearly doesn’t include the little things that are actually big things in the payroll world. No mention of the change to allow electronic P60s from April 2011 and also no reference to HMRC’s volte-face on the plan for a special tax code for students. Not a lot to ponder on otherwise, unless you employ teachers.
In passing, two payroll-unrelated news items caught my eye while researching this week’s news. The first, in Ireland, is about the company Investing Profit Wisely Ltd, which has just gone into voluntary liquidation. As the item appeared in the April 1 issue of the Irish Government’s statutory magazine I was concerned that it was an April Fool (surely they wouldn’t) but it appears to be genuine. The other is an immigration and asylum case heard in Leeds Crown Court involving the directors of a well-known Indian restaurant. The charges went way beyond employing illegal workers. The directors were found guilty of the illegal trafficking of nine legal immigrants who were effectively imprisoned when they arrived in England and forced to work long hours without pay in the restaurant.
