The Insurance Industry have worked with the Government to help develop the Employers’ Liability Tracing Office (ELTO).

The formation of ELTO, an independent industry body comprising members who are Employers’ Liability (EL) insurers, is a proactive move by the insurance industry to meet its obligations to help those who have suffered injury or disease in the workplace identify the relevant insurer quickly and efficiently.

This is displayed on P45/P60 documents and most payslips.  The format is usually 999/XX99999 or 999/X99999

In all cases where PAYE is operated, an ERN is allocated to the employer and the ERN applies to all UK businesses employing one or more people. A minority of employers do not have an ERN, including those that:

– Are registered in Guernsey and Jersey (these have no tax presence in the UK).
