Am I correct?
I recently went to a seminar on RTI and it all seems to be pretty straight forward. I currently use Sage payroll to run our payroll with all staff set up under the same PAYE reference.
My concern though is around the FPS. We currently calculate salaries on a monthly basis as most do, but pay the depot workers who make up the bulk of the headcount on the 26th (which covers pay for a calendar month), and for reasons which I will leave for now, head office and management staff are paid on the 5th of the following month (which covers the same calendar month). We effectively run one payroll, and split the payments between the two dates.
With the introduction of RTI though, you have to align the payment date and the FPS. I am correct in saying I will no longer be able to split the payroll as the FPS will have to be done on the same day as the payment date, whether this be the 26th or the 5th? or will I be able to highlight in Sage those I want to pay on the 26th, run payroll and submit an FPS, and then highlight the head office staff and run a second payroll and submit a second FPS?
Sorry its technical .... Sage helpdesk is taking so long!!
