At this meeting the key discussion points were:

  • there is a view to provide targeted and tailored engagements to cater for smaller micro businesses to large and complex payroll, as the series to date has been quite broad
  • Communications are planned for a small population of employers whose solutions will be ready to come on board at the end of January. A wider comms approach and advertising campaign will be explored for next year now there is a better view of DSP readiness
  • The remainder of DSP deferrals should be processed over the coming weeks. Additional assurance checks to ensure products are working correctly before being rolled out more broadly have proved advantageous
  • Updated DSP transition guidance notes and employer guidance have now been published
  • There was discussion about how employers are responding to the change in requirements with STP Phase 2.

Key messages for this working group are available in Online Services for DSPs.
