Real Time Information –

What it means to employers

From April 2013, all employers are now legally required to make submissions to HMRC every time they pay their employees, rather than one submission at year end, substantially increasing the time and administration involved in processing a payroll.

RTI has been implemented to support the operation of Universal Credits and to help make the PAYE system easier for HMRC to administer. Incorrect processing and submission of payroll could affect any means tested benefits that employees receive.

Therefore, on a new employee’s first payday, all the following information must be submitted to HMRC – full name, date of birth, National Insurance number (passport number if not known), address, date of starting and weekly contracted hours.

For each subsequent payment, details of each employee’s net pay and total deductions must be submitted.

Westcountry Payroll operates RTI for all our existing clients.
