September alert for Employers

September alert for Employers

News Release issued by the COI News Distribution Service on 02 September 2010

HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) has issued an alert to employers who use its Employer CD-Rom to help run their payroll systems.

Employers who are using the CD-ROM must update it now, to ensure it has the most up-to-date guidance and calculators.

HMRC will be replacing the Employer CD-ROM for employers with a new downloadable application – ‘Basic PAYE Tools’ – in February 2011, and downloading the September update will ensure that employers can take full advantage of this new product.

The September update can be downloaded free from the HMRC website at

HMRC is also urging employers to register for its email alert service, which notifies employers when new information is available on the HMRC website. Register at

Stephen Banyard, Director of HMRC’s Business Customer Unit, said:

“I encourage all employers who use our CD-ROM to download the update as soon as possible, and also register for our email alert service, to ensure they receive all the latest employer news.”
