Is someone at HMRC taking the p*ss?

I don't know who drafted these letters that clients have receiving from HMRC this week.  Clearly they are either feeling mischievous or they don't get out of their ivory towers much.

Get this...

"As reporting PAYE in real time happens as part of your routine payroll process, you should expect to see a reduction in time spent on administration".

This is being sent directly to clients.  Those same clients who we will need to discuss fees with for the additonal work involved in RTI.  No doubt some will now expect a reduction.
