On 6 April 2013 employers across the UK started reporting their PAYE information to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) in real time.

Further to HMRC's Press Release on 4 April 2013, real time information (RTI) went live as planned at 06.00 on 6 April 2013 when employers across the UK started reporting their PAYE to HMRC in real time. A further press release will be issued today.

So far HMRC has received over 70,000 PAYE submissions in real time - in line with what was expected in the first few days.
