We have changed our payroll provider, they have sent the request on line to become our agent. With this process a code is issued and sent to us by letter, we then need to give our new provider that code so they can apply to become our new agent. We have not yet received this letter and I was wondering if there is a way to escalate this as our agent will not be able to make FPS returns on our behalf until we receive and pass on this code.
