How to apply for certificates

Requests for A1s or other certificates of coverage or continuing liability are usually made by the employer or their agent. They need to be made to HMRC Newcastle. The full address is:

HM Revenue & Customs
PT Operations North East England
International Caseworker
Telephone enquiries can now only be made via the general HMRC helpline numbers
Contact by email is usually not possible, although, on occasions, an official may provide an email address

Whilst applications can be made online, some certificates are still requested by post. Where an online application is made and a 64-8 authority form is required, this needs to be sent by post or a separate online form needs to be completed. (A facility allowing attachments to go with the application form is to be introduced.) There is a series of application forms depending on the type of certificate being requested and they are readily available on the GOV.UK website. The HMRC preference is that the forms are completed on screen then printed off and submitted along with any supporting documentation. Leaflet NI38 ‘Social Security Abroad’ also provides useful information. The main application forms for employers and employees are:

  1. CA382
