HMRC admits 16,000 PAYE errors

As many as 16,000 penalties have been issued incorrectly to businesses over
their PAYE returns, the taxman has admitted.

HM Revenue & Customs said that of 202,000 penalty notices issued to
businesses for failing to send in their PAYE end of year return on time, as many
as 8% of notices have been issued incorrectly.

The taxman has blamed human error rather than an unknown IT systems fault.
