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.
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.
