HMRC have informed us that due to a software error some employers may have received a penalty notice from HMRC because the 2012/13 Employer Annual Return has not been submitted.
If we prepare your payroll; the 2012/13 Employer Annual Return would have been submitted on time. However, due to the software error some returns have not been received by HMRC, despite a ‘successful submission’ receipt being issued by HMRC. In order to cancel the penalty notice issued, the Employment Annual Return needs to be re-submitted by 25 June 2013, therefore, if you have received any form of penalty notice from HMRC, it is extremely important that you inform us as soon as possible so that we can bring your employers records up to date. Failure to do so will result in the penalties remaining in place.
We would stress that the fault lies with both HMRC and the software provider.
