Useful Payroll Information
RTI (Real Time Information) compliance reporting to HMRC
From April 2012 HMRC introduced RTI to help improve payroll and PAYE services. All information is reported to HMRC electronically according to your payroll run, i.e. weekly/monthly etc. Every time an employee is paid this must be reported to HMRC to detail how much Tax and National Insurance Contributions (NIC) falls due.
Annual reporting of forms P35, P14 are no longer required under RTI
National Insurance Contribution (NIC) Employers Allowance £3,000
You can currently reduce your employers NIC bill by up to £3,000 if you are an employer. This does not apply to everyone and there are some exemptions which can be found here
This can be claimed via your payroll software and only needs to be done once a year, usually by a tick box in the “Employment Allowance” field and then submitted with your Employment Payment Summary (EPS) to HMRC.
Construction Industry Scheme (CIS)
If you are a registered contractor for CIS then you must deduct monies from a sub-contractor’s payments and pay these on to HMRC. We can help with preparing any payroll requirements under this scheme and further reporting to HMRC and to ay sub-contractors.
