Universal Tax Credits to commence October 2013
From next October any new claims for tax credits, housing benefit and job seekers allowance amongst others will be replaced by the Universal Tax Credit.
The key difference with Universal Tax Credit is that will be based on the previous month’s income rather than the previous year’s as at present.
Claimants who receive wages through PAYE should find the new system little different to the present. However the self employed may find the new requirement for monthly reporting quite demanding.
RTI goes live for all employers from October 2013 at the latest
The major update of the PAYE system is currently on trial with some 250,000 larger companies. RTI will be introduced for all employers regardless of size by October 2013 at the latest.
Under RTI all employers will be required to report details of their employees earnings and deductions every payday so that HMRC can collect the PAYE due directly from employers’ bank accounts.
There is no alternative to RTI so if you’re an employer why not review your systems now to ensure your business will be ready when it starts?
HMRC announces re-launch of Business Records Checks
HMRC announced the re-launch of its Business Records Checks on 1st November 2012. The purpose remains the same: HMRC intends to check the adequacy of business records being maintained by Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs), but the process has changed. HMRC now intends to write to the selected SMEs prior to telephoning them to talk through their business record keeping. Based on the responses they receive HMRC will then assess whether the records are adequate, require improvement, or a face to face visit is required.
