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 are required to report on or before every single payday. And you must make sure your payroll systems and software are approved by HM Revenue and Customs and fully RTI-compliant.

And the penalties for incorrect reporting are severe. For example, the late filing penalties typically range from £100 to £400. That’s every month. So over a year penalties for late filing could amount to as much as £4,800. But don’t worry… we can take away this hassle and ensure you avoid penalties.

Understandably most business owners don't want to deal with the hassle of payroll, and automatic enrolment makes it even worse. That's where we can help.
