Collecting tax debts through PAYE: discussion paper

printer Mail

HMRC have requested comments by 12 May on draft secondary legislation to extend collection of tax arrears via PAYE codes to all tax debts with effect from April 2012.

A separate proposal to increase from £2,000 to £3,000 in the maximum amount that can be ‘coded out’ will enable more debts to be collected in a ‘relatively simple, cheap and less intrusive’ way, HMRC said.

A technical discussion paper is available.
