ICAS is hosting a joint ICAS/HMRC discussion group to discuss ‘Employment Taxes: changes and staying ahead of the game’ on Tuesday, 28 March 2017.

Employment taxes have been subject to numerous changes in recent years and more are in the pipeline, such as the use of salary sacrifice, the taxation of termination payments, or the changing responsibilities for those who contract with the public sector.  

So, what are the areas where employers go wrong, or where advisers should be advising employers?  What are HMRC looking for on PAYE visits and how can employers and taxpayers stay ahead? Join this joint discussion group to hear speakers from HMRC and ICAS introduce the topic, followed with the opportunity for a question and answer session.

If you wish to attend the meeting, please email the ICAS Tax Department at ICAS-tax@icas.com
