More employers wanted to join RTI pilot

An additional 1,300 more employers are wanted to join the Real Time Information (RTI) pilot in July 2012 it was announced by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) today.

To enable plenty of time for testing, HMRC already has 300 volunteer employers lined up for the pilot, starting in April 2012.

Working closely with payroll software developers to provide volunteers, HMRC will:
* invite a maximum of 1,300 additional volunteer employers to join the pilot in July 2012
* invite 250,000 additional volunteer employers to join RTI from November 2012 – depending on the findings from the initial pilot.

Stephen Banyard, Acting Director General for Personal Tax, said:

“Any software developer interested in joining the pilot will need to register their interest by Wednesday 30 November.

This is a unique opportunity for software developers and the employers they work closely with to help bring PAYE into the 21st century.

“Expanding the pilot from the original 300 employers will help ensure the smooth implementation of RTI. It is an ambitious but achievable target as we know that RTI is on track. We have considered all the technical and practical issues and are confident that we have the capacity to increase the pilot by over 300 per cent in July next year.”

Any software developers interested in participating in the pilot should contact Software Developers Support Team (SDST) register interest by Wednesday, 30 November. SDST will provide a template for the information required.

Completed templates for participation in the pilot in July will need to be returned to SDST by Wednesday, 7 December 2012 and include details of both products and all employers nominated to take part.

Details of all employers nominated to join the pilot from November 2012 to March 2013 will need to be provided by Friday, 30 December.
