\”HMRC acknowledges that the estimates assume employers currently operate a standard approach to PAYE and that the figures may not take into account bespoke arrangements that employers or their agents may have put in place to suit their particular organisations\”.
\”Such bespoke arrangements are not currently visible to HMRC,\” it added. \”HMRC will not be in a position to update analysis of the impacts on business until summer 2013, once the pilot is complete and further evidence on the extent of bespoke arrangements can be gathered in the early stages of the main roll-out.\”

We are all very surprised indeed, aren\’t we?
