What are HMRC notices for?

"What are HMRC notices for?"

Whenever there's a change that HMRC wants you to know about, you'll get a forwarded message called an: "HMRC notice"

To see a pay batch's "HMRC notices":

  1. First, select the pay batch on: "Menu", then "Pay batches"
  2. Then tap: "Forms", then "HMRC notices"
  3. You'll now see all your pay batch's HMRC notices from over the last year.
  4. To see an HMRC notice's full message, tap the blue "See event" button: (at the start of any row)
  5. And you'll see the body of the notice. If you tap the blue "more" link, you'll also see when it was received, and which person was involved.
  6. Where possible, if the notice is a settings change, it's auto-scheduled, and done for you.
  7. An example of an auto-scheduled change is when HMRC changes somebody's tax code.
  8. Another example, is when one of your people starts, or stops, a student loan repayment plan.
  9. Where possible you'll see a button, that takes you to see the change.
  10. And if a change is scheduled for an upcoming date, you'll also see a note about the scheduled change.
  11. If you disagree with the change, to remove a scheduled change, tap the blue "remove" link.
  12. Then tap: Yes ... remove and the scheduled change has been removed.
  13. To see HMRC notices from further back in time, tap:
    " Show settings", "Dates", then "Previous 2 years"
  14. And you'll see the older HMRC notices in the listing.
  15. To only see HMRC notices involving a set of selected people, tap:
    " Show settings", then "Side settings ... show"
  16. Then on the To list, control + tap the people you'd like to see HMRC notices for.
  17. And finally, you'll now only see HMRC notices for your selected people.

Keep in mind that:

  • If you've ever got multiple pay batches all sharing the same "Employer PAYE reference", those pay batches each show the same set of: "HMRC notices"
  • Also, for every auto-scheduled change that involves a person, two copies of an HMRC notice are emailed out.
  • One is emailed to the person involved, and the other to the pay batch's payday admin.
  • However, some "HMRC notices" are only ever emailed to the payday admin.
  • Including company tax setting changes, info updates like P11D(b) messages, CIS messages, and annual reminders.

And that's it! That's everything you need to know about HMRC notices!
