As we approach the end of the tax year, a reminder to all employers that your end of year payroll return is due soon. All P35 returns are due to HMRC by 19th May.
In addition this year, virtually all employers must now send their employer annual return for 09/10 by online submission.
Don't leave your preparation to the last minute as you will first have to register for HMRC's online services which can take a week or more to activate depending on the post.
It is unlikely you will receive the paper copy of the P35 as a reminder and penalties will apply for late submission.
Also remember to order your paper P60's as these still have to be issued direct to employees.
