Starter Checklist

Thank goodness this is now in printable version as I was cursing HMRC the other day when I tried to download.

Ref the S codes - I still have clients with employees who have not been updated and they all live and work in Scotland.

Thanks for the update - much appreciated.

Starter checklist- is it a must?
P46 was withdrawn and employers had to make own Starter Checklist but must employers now use HMRC new Starter Checklist and not their own?

Not mandatory

The short answer is No.

It is more than advisable to ask the questions (and record the answers) in order to justify which tax code you apply (until notified otherwise direct by HMRC) and whether to make Student Loan deductions (and if so for which plan type).

However it is the questions (and logic flow) that matters, not the physical makeup of the form ... which can be paper or electronic, and can be your own creation (so long as it incorporates the same questions).
