Terms of Reference

  • The name of the group will be the Employment Consultation Forum.
  • The group will be HMRC’s principal consultation forum for employers and their intermediaries, and will focus primarily on strategic or higher level issues of legislative and operational policy and practice.
  • The group will be an effective forum for HMRC to explain and explore implications of potential changes to policies, products and processes impacting on employers and on employment issues.
  • Employers to raise and discuss issues or problems in administering payroll obligations or in relation to employment issues more generally.
  • Other Government Departments may be invited when their potential changes to products and processes are identified as having an impact on employers’ payroll operations.
  • Sub-groups to address specific topics and issues will be set up and disbanded as considered necessary by the group.
  • Agenda items will be compiled by the secretary of the group from suggestions by both internal HMRC and external representatives. AOB items should normally be suggested a week in advance of each meeting.
  • A senior official from one of the Customer Units and an external representative will jointly co-chair the group. Nominees from a cross-cutting range of other HMRC Units will also attend meetings, including a representative of the Individuals Customer Unit when issues impacting on employees are expected to arise.
  • The group will be made up of nominees of employers’ and intermediaries’ representative organisations.
  • The group will normally meet on a quarterly basis, but where appropriate will discuss and decide on issues by email between formal meetings.
  • Exceptionally additional meetings may be called at short notice to discuss matters of urgency.
  • The secretary of the group will liaise with secretaries of other consultation fora to ensure issues are discussed in the most suitable forum, and thus to avoid duplication.
  • Action points will be recorded by the secretary, and representatives will be advised of progress by email between meetings. ##Meeting Minutes
