Tax summaries to land from 3rd November
16m taxpayers will from 3rd November start to receive tax summaries in the post or online related to the 2013/14 tax year. See https://www.gov.uk/government/news/personal-tax-summaries-seven-things-to-know for an idea of what they will contain and why they might lead to employee queries. Remember we still have not had a public statement from HMRC that indicates which of the 5m P800s related to 2013/14 (the post year end reconciliations) are right or wrong. They said in a press release that only those sent from 15th September were wrong and of those only 20,000 were affected, but many of us have examples of incorrect P800s that pre-date 15th September. The cost of distributing the summaries is £5.3m.
