This is the new system that is being introduced by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).  Most employers will join RTI in April 2013, when it is officially launched,  and all employers will be using the service by October 2013.

It has been designed to improve the Pay as You Earn (PAYE) process. The new operation of PAYE will mean that data is submitted to HMRC at every payroll run rather than annually at the end of the tax year.  Using the new system will mean that information held by HMRC about employees will be up-to-date and therefore fewer errors in tax deductions etc should occur.  It will also be used as part of the new universal credit system.

Two employers that we current process payroll for have agreed to become part of the pilot scheme and we will be sending our first RTI submissions to HMRC in July.
