Basic Introduction to Employment Taxes

This half-day course covers the fundamentals of Employment Taxation to help public bodies understand the basic principles in this area and to deal with the relevant issues arising.

 The course considers in detail the following essential topics: the general charging provisions, PAYE regulations and Real Time Information. It will also cover how to distinguish taxable earnings from non-taxable payments; the definition of earnings; the application of ‘rule 1’ and ‘rule 2’ in relation to when the charge to tax arises; liability to tax and whether this belongs to the employer or employee.          

 All the areas will be covered with case studies, case law references and HMRC guidance, where appropriate.

We recommend this training course to all PSTAX clients and contacts. It will be highly relevant for staff with responsibility for all taxes and also for staff in HR/Payroll, as part of their essential Continuation of Professional Development.

Where this course is offered, it will be a morning session with the Basic Introduction to National Insurance Contributions course offered in the afternoon on the same day. Therefore, whilst this is a standalone course, delegates may be interested in booking both courses.
