Payroll World reports that 300,000 companies have failed to report Real Time Information (RTI) to HMRC, ie switch to RTI by the early June deadline.
As a result they have been sent letters by HMRC informing them of their legal requirement to have filed PAYE in real time from April 2013.
An HMRC spokesman said:
“We know that the vast majority of these 300,000 schemes do not have any employees. It’s really important that employers tell us if they haven’t paid anyone in the tax month.Tax does have to be taxing.
This is easy to do. All the information they need is on our website at www.hmrc.gov.uk/actnow. If a scheme is no longer needed employers should contact us so we can close it on our records.”
