Employers may not therefore receive as many notices of coding as normally expected. The instruction from HMRC is to continue to use the current tax code in 2010/2011 if a notice of coding is not received by 6 April 2010.
The most common error on notice of coding is Van Fuel Benefit of £1050. The correct fuel benefit for 2010/2011 is £550 however HMRC have also included the figure for 2009/2010 (£500). It is recommended all notice of coding are rigorously checked.
