Real Time Information (RTI) system for PAYE to begin

A new system for reporting PAYE tax deductions comes into force on 6 April for many businesses, called Real Time Information (RTI).

Employers will have to report national insurance and income tax deductions every time they pay staff, not just at the end of the year.

The new system is needed to calculate payments for the government's planned Universal Credit.

Breakfast's Dominic Laurie spoke to Ellie Gamble, who has been helping employers implement the new system, and heard from fish and chip shop owner John Moore, who is already using RTI in his small business.
