Data Protection: [About 192.com]:

The website 192.com can provide a wealth of information about a person, such as their full name, address, telephone number and details of those they live with.

This website is used to find out information about people and businesses, where a person searched, it can reveal the individual’s full name, address and telephone number. These details are mainly harvested from the telephone directory database and in order to undertake the search you need to know the subject’s location.

So, this is how many organisations and not so honest individuals use the data on 192.com to contact people as all of its content is taken from data that’s in the public domain. While it doesn’t promote the fact but you can ask all of your details to be removed from its website.

A removal request:

To do this you need to complete 192.com’s C01 record removal form.

Download a C01 form from 192.com and submit via email, fax or post.

Once received, it will remove your personal details from the website within 21 days. You can stop your details from getting into public domain by going ex-directory (your service provider can arrange this for you) and asking your local council to remove them from the edited electoral register-this is the document which is sold to such organisations.

P11d deadline – 6th July 2017

The forms P11D which report details of benefits and some expenses provided to employees and directors for the year ended 5 April 2017, are due for submission to HMRC by 6 July 2017.

Employees pay tax on benefits provided as shown on the P11D, generally via a PAYE coding notice adjustment or through the self assessment system. Significant changes were introduced to the rules for reporting expenses from 6 April 2016.

In addition, regardless of whether the benefits are being reported via P11D or payrolled the employer has to pay Class 1A National Insurance Contributions at 13.8% on the provision of most benefits. The calculation of this liability is detailed on the P11D(b) form. The deadline for payment of the Class 1A NIC is 19th July (or 22nd for cleared electronic payment). As 22nd July is a Saturday it may be appropriate to ensure cleared payment is made by Friday 21st July unless you can arrange for faster payment.

If you would like any help with the completion of the forms or the calculation of the associated Class 1A NIC please get in touch.

 

Pension Regulator (TPR).

TPR are warning employers that ignoring TPR penalties could seriously damage a business' reputation.

TPR are maintaining a tough approach towards those employers who try to get away with not giving their staff the pension that they are due. The latest development is to publish details of those who have paid their Escalating Penalty Notice (EPN) but remain non-compliant. TPR will also publish the details of those who failed to pay their EPN, and as a result have been made subject to a court order.

The details published will include the employer's name, the penalty amount, and the first part of their postcode.
