Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) settings | Payroll Web Platform


The payroll platform uses your Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) settings when submitting Real Time Information (RTI) to the HRMC. These details inform the HMRC who is lodging these RTI events for your organisation and provide them with the needed information to process your requests.

The HMRC settings feature allows you to enter your financial information, such as your organisation's tax office details, RTI settings, and EPS submission process. The feature is also where you can declare if you need to pay the apprenticeship levy and if you have reported this figure for this financial year.
