CD-Rom Alert For Employers

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

Employers 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.
