Can you send HMRC a daily FPS submission?

Daily FPS submission... Is it possible?

Didn't find your answer?

A new client has asked me to pay their employees daily and submit a daily FPS with HMRC. Will HMRC accept a daily FPS?

Jeez - the accountancy fees will probably exceed his profits !!

In theory, yes. In practice, I think you're going to struggle to find some software that'll cope with that.

Google Extreme Payroll Software and see what comes up.

Love it! Extreme is right! I feel early retirement coming on... I just about cope with weekly never mind daily.

The PAYE/NI/SxP rules are constructed with the concept of weekly, multi-week, and monthly pay. Daily thresholds are undefined.

In theory you could do what the client wants by operating weekly pay 7 times a week, and using supplementary pay runs whenever an employee works multiple times in the same week (ie some very expensive and complicated payroll software handles the concept of an employee being paid multiple times within a pay period). In practice the idea is a non-starter.

Thank you, everyone!

I've come to the conclusion that this is a non-starter... far too much work involved for a small practice like ours.

Surely the "Impractical" exemption for RTI would apply?

For a problem entirely of the employer's making ?

I think not. But we'll never know......
