HMRC has confirmed that MidlandHR’s RTI software has been proven to be exceptionally reliable for submitting data using the new real time information (RTI) reporting method. 100 per cent of FPS (full payment submission) and EPS (employer payment submission) files were submitted to HMRC successfully. All but one of the EAS (employer alignment submission) files submitted were successful. The data covers submissions made since the RTI controlled go-live began in April 2012 to the end of January 2013.
Bob Newsome, strategic payroll consultant, MidlandHR, said, “We put significant effort into making sure that our RTI solution would be extremely reliable for our customers so it is pleasing to see that the software is working as expected. We built HMRC’s RTI schema into our solution to ensure that inaccurate files cannot be created in order to avoid the subsequent inconvenience of inaccurate files being rejected.
“The one unsuccessful EAS submission was found to be down to user error. This highlights the need for housing providers to ensure they are properly prepared for their first RTI submission.”
