HMRC continue to target the middle market. Due to changes to their approach, which have not been well publicised, we have seen them increasing their recoveries from middle market businesses, and this is in line with their expectation.

We will be holding a seminar which will take place in three locations, Birmingham, Nottingham and Derby, during March. At the seminar we will address this issue and give a framework to ensure you are not caught in HMRC’s recovery “fishing net”. The topics we will discuss include:

• HMRC Employer Compliance – Things you need to know: including managing penalties, minimising the number of years of recovery, managing HMRC’s presumption of guilt by evidencing good practice

Changes from April 2018: including termination payments, PAYE Settlement Agreements, and managing the end of interim salary sacrifice extensions

• Tax Efficient Rewards/Benefits – they are not yet extinct: Understand the most cost effective options for your business

The seminar will be led by our Employment Tax experts Laura Parr and Mick Verney, who have both worked in senior tax advisory roles in the “Big 4” accountancy firms and for HMRC as Employer Compliance Inspectors.


Tea and coffee will be served on arrival from 3pm, followed by the seminar at 3.30pm. There will be an opportunity for Q&A at the end when a light buffet will be served. Please can you advise us of any dietary requirements when booking.

Who Should Attend?

Our seminar will be of interest to anyone in business. It will be most useful for MDs, FDs, HR, and Payroll Managers.
