Employers who planned to submit Short Term Business Visitor (STBV) reports by email must instead use post or submit via a shared workspace.
UK employers which operated an Appendix 4 STBV agreement for 2018/19 must submit their reports to HMRC on or before 31 May 2019.
Previously, HMRC accepted submission of these reports by email, post or via a shared workspace.
HMRC has confirmed that, with immediate effect, STBV reports for 2018/19 will not be accepted by email.
This is due to a reorganisation within HMRC.
The submission of STBV reports to HMRC via a shared workspace is unaffected by this change.
However, employers who are unable to submit their STBV reports for 2018/19 in this way should submit these by post to:
Charities Savings and International 3
HM Revenue & Customs
STBV reports for 2018/19 should be submitted on or before 31 May 2019.
Given the late announcement of this change, employers who might be unable to meet this deadline should consider approaching HMRC to request an extension.
