Changes to the paper P14 and P45 forms provided by HMRC at the 2010/11 year endWednesday, October 6th, 2010
Form P14: Almost all employers are now required to file their P35 and P14 PAYE Returns online and, as a result, there is only a very small demand for paper P14s. In order to make further cost savings, HMRC has announced that, from the 2010/11 year end:
- only one copy of the P14 will be required for each employee, so it is being changed to a two-part form instead of a three-part form – the second part being the P60.
- only versions of the P14 for manual completion will be available – all continuous and laser sheet versions are being discontinued.
Form P45: From April 2011, almost all employers will also be required to submit forms P45 and P46 online. As a result, HMRC will no longer stock and supply the 4-part “continuous” versions of the paper form. The inference is that, in addition to the version for manual completion, the 3-part continuous and laser sheet versions will continue to be available to order.
P30BC Payslip booklet: To remove any confusion over the use of this booklet, it is to be renamed “Payment booklet” from 20011/12.
