Up to 500 employers at a time will be able to join live webinar sessions on Real Time Information (RTI) hosted by HMRC experts this month (March), reports small business accountants Harris & Co.
The interactive sessions last up to an hour and allow employers and agents to ask questions on RTI – the new PAYE reporting system.
From 6 April, employers will report in real time each time they pay employees, rather than annually. This updates the PAYE system so that it is quicker, easier and more accurate.
RTI will be introduced from April 2013, with employers reporting each time they pay their employees, rather than yearly.
Ruth Owen, HMRC’s director general for personal tax, said: ‘The webinars allow employers to participate in a live seminar and ask questions of RTI experts.’
‘During March we are holding several RTI sessions a day so that employers can join in when it is convenient for them.’
The webinars are free but users must register in advance.
More details are available from HMRC.
