Despite the thorough review recommended by the OTS in 2014, there will be only one change in 2018/19, and this is the step towards permanent agreements or eternal PSAs. taxagents.blog.gov.uk/2019/06/25/paye-settlement-agreement-deadline-6-july-2019/ In addition, for the current fiscal year 2018/2019, the agreement procedure between PSA and HMRC is amended. Instead of having to enter into a new agreement with HMRC each year, HMRC enters into “permanent” agreements. Permanent agreements last until the EPI needs to be changed, i.e. you want to add an article where the EPI is terminated. There will be no need for a new agreement each year. HMRC has issued P626s that will form the basis of the first permanent agreement. P626s will ask employers to agree on their permanent PPE based on the criteria for the 2017-2018 fiscal year. To obtain a PSA, the employer must write to HMRC Business Tax Operations (see address below) out of the costs and benefits that the EPI must cover.
Subject to the agreement, HMRC will send two copies of Form P626. These forms indicate all the elements to be included in the EPI and the date on which hmrc calculations are to be provided. Both forms must be signed and returned to HMRC by an authorized representative of the employer, who will then be approved by the signature of both copies and returned to the employer. The PAYE Settlement Agreement (PSA) procedure allows employers to enter into an annual agreement with HMRC under which the employer makes a one-time payment for tax and national insurance due for the qualification of in-kind or in-kind or irregular benefits and taxable expenses collected by their employees. If you haven`t done so yet, this is now the last chance for employers to enter into a PSA with HMRC for fiscal year 2107/2018, as the agreement with HMRC must be signed and come into force by July 6, 2018. From 2018-19, HMRC has moved on to a new simplified PSA enduring process. The new procedure replaces the previous procedure by which employers had to apply for an PPE each year and to ensure that the signed agreements were in effect on a specified date. Under the new procedure, it is not necessary for an employer to do anything else after signing a permanent PSA agreement, unless the PSA agreement is to be amended or if hmrc or the customer decides that a PSA is no longer required. In February 2018, HMRC issued a brief consultation during which changes were made to the PAYE Settlement Agreement (PSA) process to remove the requirement for employers to agree each year`s PSA with HMRC and to pave the way for a future online process. Ciot, ATT and LITRG responded to HMRC and welcomed the introduction of “permanent agreements” and expressed concern about the repeal of HMRC`s motivation to repeal an PPE of existing legislation. An employer can change the items in an agreement during the year, see PSA2060.
There is no objection to a revised agreement that will be reached at any time until July 6 following the fiscal year in question, but no agreement can be filed with the PSA team for HMRC business tax transactions until July 6, 2018 for employers without PPE (or who have not received P626). If circumstances change, read the “Edit or Cancel PSA” guide to Gov.UK, notify HMRC and sign a new P626.
