HMRC issues CD-rom alert to employers
Quaint system to be replaced in 2011
HM Revenue and Customs has warned employers who use its Employer CD-rom to update it immediately to avoid miscalculations.
The department said it is important for employers to carry out the free update as it will ensure that they have the most recent guidance and calculators.
"I encourage all employers who use our CD-rom to download the update as soon as possible, and also register for our email alert service, to ensure they receive all the latest employer news," said Stephen Banyard, director of HMRC's business customer unit.
HMRC also disclosed that it will be replacing the CD-rom with a new downloadable application, Basic PAYE Tools, in February 2011.

Actually, I find it very useful
Non-intuitive? Unfriendly? I think it is very useful, not only for calculating PAYE and NI contribs, but keeping a record of it for you easily. The last version (2009) was not good, but 2010's CDROM worked brilliantly. No problems filling in all of the records and it submitted everything for me with no problems at all.
Yes, it's written in Flash (I think) but it runs on Widoze, Mac and Linux. What other piece of tax software does that?
Register for our emails
I foresee a tsunami of spam arriving soon that appears to come from HMRC but roots a "new" update on the computers.
