HMRC launches video guide to help employers understand real-time information programme

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has launched a video guide to help introduce employers to the real-time information (RTI) programme, which comes into effect from April 2013.

The video looks at what RTI means for employers, the main changes that will be introduced, and a timetable for the programme.

The programme will require all employers to send HMRC information about employees’ pay and deductions before, or when, they run their payroll process, rather than at the end of the tax year.

Jane Brothwood, head of the stakeholder and communications team, RTI programme at HMRC, said: “It’s really important that employers are prepared for the introduction of RTI.

“The video that we have launched should help answer most questions and provide insight for our vision of bringing payroll into the 21st century.”
