You can just write a letter and email it to them, that will be fine. And yes, tell your line manager, he/she can always pass it on to anyone else who needs it (eg payroll agency)

The info you need to include:
that you are pregnant
EDD
When you are intending to start your maternity leave
I would also include telling them how long you are intending to take off (if it's the full 52 weeks, then just say that)
Tell them your MAT B1 will follow as soon as you have it

I think that covers all the basics - they can always ask you for more info if necessary.

Congratulations!

It probably will be just your line manager but there must be someone who issues contracts etc?

Hi wonder if someone could help me. In a few weeks I'm going to hit the point in my pregnancy that I need to tell work I am pregnant and plan on taking leave. My job has no HR or anyone in charge of the tasks. I would assume that I just tell my boss but I prefer to do this via email in one big swoop. For mat pay reasons is their a standard letter template or guide on what I should send as an attachment which will include every lawful thing I need to include? Thank you in advance.
