HMRC counts down to RTI

HMRC has started counting down to the day when Real Time Information (RTI) changes apply to PAYE systems.

The countdown clock today showed 84 days until the changes come into force when employers will have to start sending PAYE returns electronically using specially enabled software to HMRC every time they pay their employees as part of routine processes.

The returns must include details of all employees' pay, tax and deductions and this system will replace sending a separate return at the end of the year.

HMRC's director of general personal tax urged employers to 'act now' in order to 'avoid a last minute rush' if they haven't done so already.
