The research collected qualitative data from employment intermediaries submitting the new reporting requirement on time, late as well as those that did not comply with the reporting requirement. The 60 in-depth interviews explored how employment intermediaries responded to the new requirement to submit details of their non-PAYE workers to HMRC in quarterly reports.
