RTI payroll submissions are a click away with Sage payroll software

Sage HMRC recognised RTI payroll software makes RTI compliance simple for small businesses, charities, retailers and nonprofits.

Making your real time payroll submission

Real-time information (RTI) was introduced in 2012 to make the PAYE system less complicated for employers and HMRC. HMRC now requires all businesses to make RTI payroll submissions.

Tax codes are updated throughout the year and reporting new joiners and leavers is easier with RTI. Employees benefit too as they’re much less likely to be surprised with under or overpayment notices.

Reliable RTI payroll HMRC reporting solutions from Sage

Our payroll software makes your real time payroll submissions straightforward and accurate. We’ve developed market-leading, HMRC recognised solutions that are legally compliant and make RTI submissions to HMRC with a single click. 

There are several different types of RTI submissions, but the most common are the full payment submission (FPS) and the employer payment summary (EPS). Using Sage software, you can be confident that you’re reporting the right data at the right time.

What is an RTI payroll HMRC Full Payment Submission (FPS)?

FPS is the submission you will most commonly make to HMRC. It lays out what you paid your employees in that period and what deductions you made. The details of new employees and leavers are included in this report too. 

If you have a mix of employees paid on a weekly or monthly basis, you’ll need to make multiple FPS submissions each month.

What is an RTI payroll HMRC Employers Payment Summary (EPS)?

Your regular FPS submissions will keep HMRC informed of your PAYE and NIC liability. The EPS is used when you need to recover statutory payments, and if no one has been paid during the period.

The EPS should also include data from outside your payroll that reduces your HMRC liability, such as Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) deductions. 

RTI payroll ID and other data you’ll need from new employees

Getting RTI right is vital to avoid penalties and fines from HMRC. Taking the time to collect accurate information, sending your RTI submissions on time and paying what you owe is essential.
