aaaaaaaaarrrgh – the horror that is HMRC’s RTI payroll tax system part 1

January 28, 2016


I’ve had many client questions on the RTI payroll tax system recently.

Employers are still struggling to copye with HMRC’s problems with it’s own PAYE RTI system. It is now common for employers to receive a letter incorrectly warning that you’ve made a late report.

Poor HMRC! The government forced RTI through before the system was ready although it hasn’t helped itself by declaring that it works 99% of the time. A report by an accounting body found that in 15% of employers’ PAYE records there was some type of discrepancy.

If you’ve had an electronic acknowledgement and get a letter saying you are late, ignore the letter.
