Ben Nevis Challenge

Team Barrie Scott successfully completed The Ben Nevis Challenge on 20th June taking a little over 11 hours to cover the ascent of Ben Nevis, followed by 33 miles of cycling and a canoe course on Loch Lochy. The team, Jill McEwan, Craig Allison , Alan Swords and Clive Scott, with logistical support from Catherine Crombie, surprised themselves by finishing in the top half of the 88 teams participating. Some £9,000 was raised for our nominated charity Strathcarron Hospice. A big thank you to all donors.

The current hot topic

PAYE Update

HMRC have confirmed, in their updated guidance, that the three day easement and risk assessed approach to issuing penalties will continue to apply for 2016/17. As a result employers will not incur penalties for delays of up to three days in filing PAYE information during the 2016/17 tax year.

Late filing penalties will continue to be reviewed on a risk-assessed basis rather than be issued automatically.

Employers are required to file a Full Payment Submission (FPS) on or before each payment of wages is made to employees. Limited exceptions apply to this deadline which are set out at https://www.gov.uk/running-payroll/fps-after-payday.

HMRC will not charge a late filing penalty for delays of up to three days after the statutory filing date, however employers who persistently file late, will be monitored and may be contacted or considered for a penalty.
