The Inland Revenue has apologised for its failed PAYE online system, which has left hundreds of accountants and employers waiting patiently over the last two days to file PAYE returns.
‘We apologise to the small number of employers who are inconvenienced by this,’ said a Revenue spokesman. ‘We are doing absolutely everything we can to address this and we are working to resolve the problem as quickly as possible. We are confident that our system will be fully operational soon. There is no obligation to file online on these first few days, and there is still plenty of time to file returns online.’
He added that the system is now up and running for employers using third-party software to file, however, not all employers can access the new ‘Online Return and Form – PAYE service’.
