I worked for H.M.R.C for 30 years doing various jobs including Personal Tax calculations being part of a management support team accepting the responsibility for the Health and Safety and Training of over 200 staff. I also helped my Region to gain I.I.P. Accreditation. I have worked on the C.I.S scheme when it was initially introduced and was part of both a small and large compliance team dealing with enquiries into multi- million pound companies. My business started in a conservatory at home and since then we have had two further moves into ever increasingly larger offices. I now have several part time staff members and we are going from strength to strength.

Surely its common sense to remove access to the system as soon as an employee leaves?

I journal the employment allowance out (DR )of Employer Ni - the opposite entry being (CR) Total Ni - thus making the bank for total NI paid correct. My entries show employer allowance' on the journals i.e
Gross pay 3000
emr NI 150
Net Pay 2050
Total Ni 500
Empr ni 150
Total ni 150
Hope that helps.

RTI Employment allowance submission
I had one this morning - but i'd input the wrong submission details on my (new) clients e-submission settings - my fault entirely - apart from that i've had no problems at all with the rest I do use Sage payroll software and not the HMRC tools.

As you can see I'm up early - as far as I can see from the thread of this discussion - lots of people are up in arms? Why ? The only pitfall I can see is the Vat registration - and no I'm not Vat registered and don't intend to be unless I need to - the criteria to me look perfectly reasonable. Although I am assuming that an Agent only has to meet most of the Criteria and not ALL - which a lot of commentators assume is required. if I am not accepted into the fold then I'll write or see my MP - I have a practice licence, I'm insured, registered for money Laundering , registered for DPA , and registered with my prof body - I am not worried by this. I will of course write and consume humble pie when I am not allowed to join the elite band of agents that HMRC will accept.

I am on the side of HMRC (sort of) . The majority of experienced HMRC staff saw this coming over 10 years ago most of whom left when offered a way out - no-one can deliver expected results with 'baby' inspectors, and by that i mean newly qualified inspectors with no experience of real taxes and no common sense.
I fought for over 3 years to get 'someone' in HMRC to read operational procedures when some one is declared bankrupt - eventually 'someone' agreed I was right and that HMRC had made a big boo boo - ( in their defence it was a £20,000 boo boo - but most certainly not payable) This was a simple problem - throw in an investigation - baby inspectors, no common sense or real knowledge of taxation and here we are today living with the consequences.
