Terms of Reference
The Statutory Payments Consultation Group is a sub group of the Employment and Payroll Group.
The group is HMRC’s principal employer consultation group on the full range of statutory payments issues - providing the opportunity :
- for HMRC to explain and explore practical implications for employers, payroll bureaux and payroll software developers of potential changes in statutory payments (legislative and operational)
- for employers, payroll bureaux and payroll software developers to raise and discuss issues or problems in administering statutory payments
The group is made up of nominees of representative organisations covering a wide range of employers (both large and small), payroll bureaux and payroll software developers.
The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and HMRC all have an interest in statutory payments and are permanent and integral members of the group.
The Group is chaired by HMRC.
Terms of reference, a list of nominees and the groups they represent, and formal Notes of Meetings are published online.
The group normally meets every two months - but other meetings may be arranged on an ad-hoc basis. Progress may also be maintained in between meetings by email exchanges, informal gatherings and telephone calls - particularly when members are unable to attend meetings.
Meeting frequency - every three or four months.
