Unexpected student loan noticesFriday, September 23rd, 2011
Employer procedures on receiving inappropriate SL1 start notices.
The following is an extract from the latest weekly informal update (dated 16 September) from HMRC to employer representatives.
HMRC is starting a programme of work to align employer and employment information held on our systems.
Specifically within the Collection of Student Loans environment:
- Those employers who have employees for whom student loan deductions are already being made, may find they receive an unexpected SL1 start notice, and
- some employers may receive a SL1 start notice for employees who have already left their employment.
In both cases the guidance remains unchanged. Simply take no action and file away the SL1 start notice.
