Being an employer – HMRC offers new webinar dates and videos

HMRC are offering help and support to employers with a series of free online ‘webinars’ and YouTube videos.

A webinar is like watching a conference speaker on a stage from the comfort of your own home. By logging in at the appropriate time through your computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone, you will be able to listen to HMRC talking whilst watching their presentation.

HMRC’s webinars last for about an hour. A list of dates and times of some of their forthcoming webinars for employers are below. You will need to register for these webinars beforehand (you can do this by clicking on the link below). You can join, ask questions and leave at any point – no special equipment is needed. To ask questions – use the on-screen textbox and HMRC will send a response.

If you are not able to make a ‘live’ webinar, you can also watch a recording of a webinar which has already taken place. At the time of writing, there are no live dates scheduled for the webinars on topics such as The National Living Wage / The National Minimum Wage for employers or Employment status, however there are recorded webinars available.
