PAYE – Real Time Information – ARE YOU READY?

The start of the new tax year will herald in significant changes to the way PAYE is administered.

The big question is: Has your business been paying attention?

On 6 April, HMRC will introduce ‘Real Time Information’ (RTI) meaning that businesses must send PAYE payroll information to HMRC at the same time as they pay an employee.

According to recent statistics a staggering number of small and medium sized businesses are still unaware of this change in reporting and with the date looming, are you prepared for this?

What is RTI and what will it mean for your business?

Simply put, business will have to:

  • Send HMRC details EVERYTIME they pay an employee, at the time they pay them
  • Use payroll software to send this information electronically as part of a routine payroll process

The current system allows employers to issue PAYE information to HMRC at the Payroll Year End. The new RTI system will require firms to send payroll data to HMRC on or before the date each employee is paid.
