Have your say

THE deadline is looming for employers in the South to get their 2011/12 annual returns to HM Revenue & Customs.

Employer Annual Returns, which provide information on employees’ tax and national insurance deductions during the tax year, must be sent online to HMRC by Saturday.

HMRC is writing to all employers who haven’t sent their return to remind them to file on time and that, if they file their return late, they will be charged a penalty of £100 per 50 employees for each month, or part month, that the return is outstanding.

Employers who are not registered for online filing need to sign up for HMRC’s PAYE Online service.

Help is available from HMRC via on 08457 143 143 or at hmrc.gov.uk/paye/file-or-pay/fileonline
