HMRC PAYE update (RTI, BPT, Toolkits and Employer Helpbooks)
HMRC have provided a further informal update on PAYE related matters for sharing. The update covers RTI, Basic PAYE Tools, Toolkits and amendments to the online versions of the Employer Handbooks.
Improving the operation of PAYE – Real Time Information
HMRC has now published the Tax Information and Impact Note covering Real Time Information (RTI): improving the operation of PAYE.
Basic PAYE Tools (BPT)
The latest version of the Basic PAYE Tools has now been published on our website. BPT is a computer software package provided by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) to help you run your payroll throughout the year.
Toolkits to help minimise common errors
