RTI Relaxation

Newsletter issue - April 2013.

The real time information (RTI) system for submitting PAYE information to HMRC must be used by small employers for all pay days on and after 6 April 2013. However, at the last minute the Government has agreed to a temporary relaxation of one of the RTI reporting requirements for employers with fewer than 50 employees.

If you fall into that category, and you pay some employees more frequently than once a month, you can send your RTI report known as full payment submission (FPS), to HMRC when you run your monthly payroll. You would normally have to send in a FPS every time you pay an employee.

However, there are conditions:

  • The payroll run must be made before the end of the tax month, i.e. by 5 May for employees paid in April; and
  • The relaxation also only applies for RTI reports submitted up until 5 October 2013.

Remember, this is not a postponement of RTI, it is a small and temporary change to one reporting rule. You still need to use new or updated payroll software to report payroll data under RTI for all pay dates on or after 6 April 2013.
