Happy New Year!

Well I'm sure we have all returned to work this week, raring to go, full of resolutions for 2017.

So to help you plan for the year ahead, Ian Holloway of Cintra HR, has shared with us his top ten payroll issues for 2017, which should give us all something to think about!

Last chance to complete the IReeN National Meeting survey

Dear Developer
Please read the slides about some changes HMRC will be making as a result of new Scottish Income Tax Powers for the 2017/18 tax year.

Regards SDSTeam

Dear Developer,

1) I have attached test data for Scottish tax calculations using the new proposed Scottish higher rate threshold. This was announced in the Scottish Draft Budget on 15th December but is still subject to approval by the Scottish parliament.


In line with this proposed change the Scottish parameters in Appendix B of the PAYE Tax Table Routines specification will be amended as shown below:-


SR1 = 10.00%                      (Rate 1) NOT USED

SR2 = 20.00%                      (Rate 2)

SR3 = 40.00%                      (Rate 3)

SR4 = 45.00%                      (Rate 4)

SB1 = £0                               (Band 1)

SB2 = £31,930                     (Band 2)

SB3 = £118,070                  (Band 3)

SC1 = £0                               (Cumulative bandwidth 1)

SC2 = £31,930                     (Cumulative bandwidth 2)

SC3 = £150,000                  (Cumulative bandwidth 3)

SK1 = £0                               (Cumulative Annual Tax 1)

SK2 = £6,386                       (Cumulative Annual Tax 2)

SK3 = £53,614                     (Cumulative Annual Tax 3)

G pointer                             2

Maxrate                               50%


2) I have also attached version 1.1 of our Directors NIC tests. This version has a couple of corrections from version 1.0.  Details are on the Amendment Sheet tab in the spreadsheet.


Best regards, John  SDSTeam
