HMRC Notices

We can connect to HMRC’s Data Provisioning Service and retrieve and apply notices for you. These notices include:

  • P6 Updated Tax Code and previous pay detail
  • SL1 Start Student Loan
  • PGL1 Start Postgraduate Loan
  • P9 Updated Tax Code
  • SL2 Stop Student Loan
  • PGL2 Stop Postgraduate Loan

HMRC Notice Settings

Click HMRC in the main menu. Then select Notices in the sub-menu. Here there is a link to the HMRC Notice Settings.

Enable HMRC Notices

Select the box to enable HMRC Notices.

You can manually trigger requests for new notices, but we run automatic checks for them twice a day.

Retrieve Notices Issued From

If you have been running your payroll for a while, you will not want us to get all of your old notices. So, we only retrieve notices issued after the date you give here. This defaults to the start of your current tax year.

Auto Apply

If this option is enabled, we automatically apply notices before a payrun.

At the start of each payrun, we look for and apply any notices that have effective dates that fall within the date range for the payrun.

Viewing Notices

Select HMRC in the main menu, then Notices. If there are any retrieved notices, they are listed here.

There is also a button to check for new notices. We automatically do this twice a day, but you can also use this button to run immediate checks.

We strongly recommend using the Auto Apply feature to apply notices automatically. You can also manually apply a notice by choosing it in the list and selecting the button to apply it.


  • You need to ensure that the notice options in your HMRC PAYE dashboard are all set to Yes.
    Only coding notices issued after you set this option will be retrievable.
  • Notices are matched to employees based on the NI number. If that fails, we try to match the “Works Number” from HMRC to the Payroll Code of the employee.
    If no match is found then this will be indicated on-screen.
