From the BBC:
"In these straitened times, governments everywhere are doing their best to downplay the effects of the recession.
But not HM Revenue and Customs.
Employers are being asked to double the size of P45 forms, given to staff leaving their service. The old A5-sized forms are being replaced with an A4 version.
An HMRC directive reads:
'It is... important to remember that employees may not recognise the new forms. All they need is reassurance that the form P45 has changed in appearance and now includes their date of birth and gender.'
Yes, that's all the reassurance anyone could ever need."
Tax does have to be taxing.
