AE: wasn't an employer but now is

How to tell TPR?

Client was a director only company and therefore not an employer. Completed that declaration for TPR.

Now got staff and AE scheme and making deductions, all hunky dory. But how does the now employer tell TPR that their circumstances have changed? I'm assuming they now need to complete a declaration of compliance but don't know. Been on the TPR website and can find absolutely nothing useful.

Anyone had this and / or know what to do? Many thanks in advance for any and all answers.

If you follow the "Employers" link from the front page, it gives you a "step-by-step" guide.

Easy answer - Call them.

They will need to know the date the company became an employer, so if you haven't paid the person yet then wait until you've done that. It then takes a few days before you can complete the relevant paperwork, but effectively they will set the employee's start date as the duties start date and everything runs from there as per normal

I am not sure why you need to tell TPR. You just tell them on the new declaration of compliance which will be 3 years after the initial one. If there are employer duties in the intervening period please would someone refer me to these duties. I know they have to set up a scheme but I don't see why they have to notify TPR. Thanks.

If they did a no employer duties for their original staging date it won't let you then do a declaration of compliance, I've tried

Of course if they did a declaration you are right, but I doubt that is true in this case. I might be wrong of course

In the case of employers (such as the director only companies automatically set by TPR without telling us) who were always set as no employer duties TPR would have to be informed if that changed

As I mentioned above, if you become an employer having never had duties before, the new employee's start date becomes your duty start date

Ok thanks I agree with your logic. Do you have any link to TPR about duties when you actually employ someone?

I find the info is all about initial staging dates and not changes.

I had understood that a declaration had been made in the first para above.

Many thanks for all responses. But the fact that 3 separate posters can give 3 different answers tells us pretty much everything we need to know about how useful government websites are.

It appears I didn't draft my query as clearly as I though I had but HuntFord has aced it in terms of understanding where I was coming from and suggesting a solution. I'll do that old fashioned thing we're not supposed to do anymore and give them a ring :)
