Payroll

Payroll changed in 2013

...it became a big headache.

In April 2013 HM Revenue and Customs introduced the new Real Time Information (RTI) reporting requirements for employers.

So what is RTI?

In a nutshell, it's a new way of reporting for employers that replaced the year-end P35 and P14 forms. Instead of reporting changes and figures at the end of the tax year, you'll be required to report on or before every single payday.

You must make sure your payroll systems and software are approved by HM Revenue and Customs and fully RTI-compliant. Here's a quick checklist of things you need to ensure:

  • Do you use RTI-compliant software?
  • Is your agent (accountant) signed up as your agent so they can report RTI on your behalf?
  • Is your broadband capability of sufficient strength and speed to handle the additional submissions due on the same date?
  • Do you have an RTI expert you can talk to someone fully conversant with the legislation and who can help with any queries?
  • Does your provider have sufficient Professional Indemnity (PI) insurance cover to protect both your business and theirs from potential claims?

Payroll is so much hassle since RTI was introduced in 2013. And auto enrolment makes it even worse.

The penalties for incorrect reporting are severe.

For example, the late filing penalties typically range from £100 to £400 (depending on the number of employees). That's every month. So over a year penalties for late filing could amount to as much as £4,800. Additionally there is a penalty of 5% of tax and NIC that should have been reported if you are more than 3 months late.

But don't worry...we can take away this hassle and ensure you avoid penalties.

Auto enrolment

Since April 2012, all UK employers are legally obliged to automatically enroll all eligible workers into a qualifying pension scheme by a specific deadline ('staging date'). Where this applies you must by law create and maintain detailed records of correspondence with workers, workforce assessments, joiners and leavers and pension payments. This is one of the most onerous challenges to face the businesses in recent years and the financial penalties for breach can be severe.

Please see our separate brochure on how we can help you here. Once again we have a range of fixed price options you can choose from.
