The following Employment Tax guidance note Produced by Tolley in association with Annette Morley provides comprehensive and up to date tax information covering:
When a UK employee leaves an employment, there are certain payroll practicalities which are the same whether he is going to a new UK position or an overseas one. UK employment responsibilities and compliance with UK employment tax legislation remain the same for all UK employers whether their employees are based in the UK or overseas.
This guidance note highlights those that are the same and provides detail on those that differ. Please see the Reporting requirements on leaving the UK and Foreign employment guidance notes for more information.
Payroll actions can differ based on employee factors including:
will they continue to be employed by the same UK employer?
will they be subject to UK tax and NIC?
will they be subject to one of either UK tax or NIC but not the other?

include the date of leaving in the Full Payment Submission (FPS)
provide the employee with a P45 form
