HMRC Key Messages 2012
Welcome to your December 2012 Key Messages from HM Revenue & Customs.
Chancellor’s Autumn Statement on 5 December 2012.
The Autumn Statement 2012 will be made by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, on Wednesday 5 December at 12.30pm.
Full details of the announcements affecting HMRC and its customers will be available here following the Chancellor's statement to Parliament.
Real Time Information (RTI): Timing of real time PAYE Returns.
In April 2013 employers will start sending PAYE information in real time to HMRC, and this information must be sent 'on or before' the date that a payment is made to an employee.
However, in a small number of situations this timescale might be difficult or impossible for employers to comply with. To help employers in these situations, we have published information setting out the circumstances where extra time will be allowed.
VAT: changes to VAT online services.
On 31 October 2012 a new way to register a business for VAT was added to HMRC’s online tax registration service, which already included Self Assessment, PAYE and Corporation Tax. At the same time, we also introduced a new variations service which enables VAT registered businesses to do more online.
Guidance about enrolling for online VAT services is available here.
Where's my reply? How to track your enquiry.
Are you an employee, or do you pay tax on a company pension through PAYE? Would you like to find out when you can expect to get a response to your enquiry or request?
HMRC have introduced a handy tracker to enable you to check how long it will take us to:
- pay your Income Tax refund
- reply to your general Income Tax enquiry
- provide a copy of individual information, such as your tax code or pay and tax details
- send you HMRC forms or stationery
If your query is not included in this list, you will not be able to use this handy tool and you will need to Contact HMRC. However, we will be adding more subjects to the tracker in due course.
Machine Games Duty (MGD): online registration service.
Are machine games played on your premises? Find out more now about your responsibility to apply for registration before 1 January 2013.
