New partnership is purchasing a business from a sole trader. The sole trader currently employs 5 members of staff and they will all continue to work for the new partnership (ie my clients). The Sole trader's bookkeeper is saying that she doesn't need to issue P45s for the staff as they're in continuous employment but I'm quite sure she's wrong and that the partnership should have its own PAYE scheme and set them up as new starters (although I'm aware that under TUPE they are entitled to rights as if it was one continuous employment). Please can someone confirm I've got this right!
