Legislation Update 2021 for payroll

PAYadvice.UK have issued its 21.4 version of the PAYadvice Series Legislation Update 2021. This is a compilation of the confirmed changes due for 2021 for the UK, Channel Islands and the Isle of Man.

The original version was made available on 7th January 2021. We believe that PAYadvice was the first organisation in the UK to bring together the various resources needed by payroll professional and payroll software developers in preparation for the April 2021 changes, We were bold enough to take the resources that were publicly released and make predictions of values yet to be confirmed. Almost all predictions came to fruition with a few exceptions.

More resources relating to the 2021/2022 tax year are available at:

  1. I would like to ask your advice for this situation; A UK firm operates a PAYE with 7 employees working in UK and 1 employee working in Hongkong. The one hired in Hongkong is a french national but has been working in Hongkong since he commenced his employment with the firm in July 2020. The firm pays his salary in Hongkong curency not a UK but the firm coverts the Hongkong pay to GBP and show this in payroll with no tax and no NIC. The employee has been on NT code.This was the advice they received from their tax expert back in 2020. As the work is not based in UK, it is proper to include the employee in the UK payroll? If not, what are the other option to take by the firm in order include that employee in the UK payroll? Thank you in advance.

    1. Hi Gina, it’s OK processing on the payroll as that’s a business matter. However, as this is not a UK employment nor payment for UK work not a UK resident, then the individual should not be reported to HMRC as they do not come under UK PAYE.
