HMRC payroll guidance - harvest casuals and casual beaters

HMRC have issued useful guidance for those employers who pay casual employees working outdoors harvesting perishable crops, or as casual beaters for a shoot.

The guidance outlines the specific circumstances which must apply in order for these employees to be paid without the deduction of tax. The guidance also stresses that their pay is still taxable income and these employees must ensure that any tax due is paid.

Monthly penalties (of between £100 and £400 depending on the size of the employer) now apply to broadly all employers who fail to submit necessary information to HMRC via the Full Payment Submission (FPS) on or before the time wages are paid to employees. It is therefore important that the rules are complied with and returns are submitted on a timely basis.

Please contact us if you would like help with payroll issues.
