Real Time Information
HMRC are issuing final reminders to employers to 'act now' in order to be ready to report PAYE under Real time Information (RTI).
HMRC have advised that they are writing to employers and pension providers to formally notify them that they must start reporting under RTI from the first payday on or after 6 April 2013.
The letters are being sent throughout February 2013 and are designed to prompt employers who have not yet taken action to get ready to send their PAYE to HMRC in real time.
Employers should have plans in place to update or acquire new RTI ready payroll software and/or have discussed the issue with their software provider, payroll bureau, or agent if they have one.
The letter includes a checklist which explains the key steps employers need to take before April 2013 to make sure they are ready for reporting PAYE in real time from 6 April 2013.
More information is available in our Payroll Real Time Information factsheet which can be found in the Employment Issues (Tax) section of our website.
