RTI - are you ready for reporting PAYE information in real time?
The biggest change to PAYE in 60 years! Under real time reporting (RTI), all employers will need to send information about PAYE tax, National Insurance Contributions, student loans and other deductions every time they pay their employees, direct to HMRC. If your setting feels this new system will make your payroll overwhelming why not consider PATA's cost effective payroll service.
