Real Time Information and annual schemes

HMRC have received a number of requests since April 2013 from employers, asking for the status of their PAYE schemes to be changed to ‘annual’ which is only an option where employees are only paid once a year.

Unfortunately HMRC are currently unable to process requests from employers to:
• move to paying annually and register as an annual scheme
• change their payment frequency.

HMRC expect to have resolved this issue by the end of July and will confirm this on their website in the ‘What’s New’ section. Until that time, if an employer does not pay any employees, they should send in a ‘nil’ Employer Payment Summary by the 19th of each month.

When the fix is in place, HMRC will accept all the requests that have been made and change those schemes to annual. They will then provide information on what action should be taken once the fix is in place.
