Revised ‘Employer Further Guide to PAYE and NICs’

Booklet CWG2, the Employer Further Guide to PAYE and NICs, is an essential addition to the day-to-day guidance that is on the Website. The CWG2 is described as giving “more information and [covering] less common situations”. This is the booklet that I usually refer to, even if the situation is a day-to-day one.

There have been two updates to the 2017-18 guidance originally published on 22 February 2017 (at which time it ceased to be published as a pdf document by HMRC):


  1. In April 2017, an essential index was added at the back
  2. On 30 May 2017, the address to ask for a Tax Awards Scheme (TAS) information pack was changed


The TAS information can now be obtained using the following contact details:


National Insurance Contributions and Employer Office

HM Revenue and Customs



Phone: 0300 200 3200
