  • Employer substitute P60 - Employees Payroll number (where appropriate)

    Hello, I am considering updating our substitute P60 form, specifically for pensions, by replacing the current “Pension Payroll Number” field with “Pension Reference Number”. Our current substitute form adheres to the streamlined pensions template outlined in the RD1_P60_24-25.pdf specification document. According to the RD1 specification, the P60 legal requirements mandate that employers must display certain information, including the line “employee’s payroll number (where appropriate)". Additionally, the specification suggests that language on Pension fund substitute P60s may be modified as needed. It provides examples of such adaptations, although it does not explicitly address the payroll number. Given this context, I seek confirmation on whether substituting “Pension Payroll Number” with “Pension Reference Number” falls within the scope of permissible changes described as “where appropriate” in the document. Your advice on this matter would be greatly valued. Thank you.
