Requests for employee information

We may ask you to complete a report to verify details about a past or present employee. This helps make sure they receive correct payments or services from us.

You should complete and return the report within the timeframe given on it. We appreciate your cooperation with this.

It is important the report is completed by the organisation that directly paid the person. If:

  • they worked for you but were paid by another organisation, please note this on the last page of the report and return it to us. Include the name and address of the organisation and we will contact them
  • they were paid as a sub-contractor and not as an employee, complete the report with a note explaining the person was a sub-contractor and return it to us
  • you have never employed or paid the person, please note this on the last page of the report and return it to us

You, or a pay officer you have authorised, should sign the report.

To return the completed form:

  • send it back in the supplied reply paid envelope, or
  • fax it to us on 132 115

You should keep a copy for your own records.

If you are enrolled for the Employer Reporting Service, you can elect to receive and respond to the Request for employee information form (SU658) or Request for further employee information form (SU659) online.
