Payroll World have reported that HMRC’s own Basic PAYE Tools software, used by some small employers with less than 9 employees to work out their payroll and take care of online filing, is failing to file RTI submissions in some cases. Advice from the Revenue on how to resolve this issue can be found here.
Another good case for using a professional Payroll Bureau?
Don’t forget that, even though you might be reporting payroll in real time (RTI) now, you still have to file a Year End Return with HMRC for the year 2012-13 by 19th May, unless you were on the RTI pilot scheme. If you have not had to maintain any P11’s during the year and therefore don’t need to make a return, you must inform HMRC of this by the same date, otherwise you may receive a late filing penalty if they are expecting a return.
