Payroll World reports that the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) has called for an easing of the reporting requirements for RTI, so that firms only need to submit data to HMRC once a month in order to reduce the cost burden on SME's.
The FSB’s proposal is to replace RTI with ‘Regular Time Information’, under which employers could submit returns once a month and which would help businesses with weekly payrolls, for example.
Sadly, for the FSB, this request is being made far too late in the day for it to be considered. The reality is the RTI is the flagship of HMRC and the government's Universal Credits. In the event RTI fails, both HMRC and the government will be holed below the water line.
Tax does have to be taxing.
