ICAEW highlights incorrect 2017-18 P800 tax calculations and PA302 simple assessments
Released 7 August 2018
The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) is requesting case specific feedback on incorrect P800 tax calculations and PA302 simple assessments.
HMRC has commenced the annual reconciliation of taxpayers’ PAYE records for 2017-18 and started to issue PAYE tax calculations where there is an under or overpayment. This can be by either a P800 tax calculation or a PA302 simple assessment. The Tax Faculty has started to receive the first reports of incorrect calculations including:
•Use of estimated figures that are out of date;
•Duplicate calculations being issued to those within self-assessment;
•Data from employer real time information (RTI) not feeding through correctly to the employee record.
For more information, see First reports of issues with P800 and PA302 calculations for 2017/18.
