AccountingWEB members are reporting problems with PAYE codes this morning following HMRC maintenance work over the weekend on its computer systems.
At 7:30am this morning, AccountingWEB member Flash Gordon logged in to comment, “They appear to have gone back in time.”When trying to view PAYE notices for the current tax year (2014-15) all he could see was a 2012/13 listing.
“And as they don't offer 2014/15 as a separate option you can't see your notices!” Flash noted.
The same scenario was reported by Banks accountants, who are unable to process records at their payroll bureau.
At 11:30am, the department contacted us to explain that the drop down list for the new tax year had been omitted from the upgraded menu over the weekend and was defaulting to a previous year. “The issue was resolved at 8.30am,” HMRC said.
