Don’t overlook your December employer PAYE/NI payment

The December payment deadline is a little way off but will soon be upon us. Any electronic payment for the tax period ended 5 December 2017 must clear into the HMRC account by Friday 22 December 2017.

If you pay by cheque in the post, payment must reach the Accounts Office by 19 December.

If you shut down early for Christmas we want to remind you to pay on time or make arrangements to ensure your payment will be made on time.

If you pay the right amount at the right time and use your 13 character Accounts Office reference you won’t incur interest and Late Payment Penalties.

If you would like to discuss any of the above please contact Torr Waterfield on 0116 2423400.
