RTI concessions for small employers to end from 6 April 2016

Published 17 February 2016

The Government announced at Autumn Statement 2015 that the current two year temporary reporting relaxation will end as planned on 5 April 2016. The relaxation permitted employers who at 5 April 2014 employed no more than 9 employees, to report their PAYE information for the tax month ‘on or before’ the last payday in the tax month instead of ‘on or before’ each payday.  This will align the reporting obligations for micro employers with all other employers who are currently required to report payments ‘on or before’ each payday. As a consequence ‘Late reporting reason code E’ will not be valid from 6 April 2016.
