Payroll software developer Payexcel ceased trading after more than 10 years in business because it could not cope with the transition to RTI.

The company, which provided software based on Microsoft Excel, ceased trading in September. Its website explains that existing PAYExcel 2012 customers have been sent the 2012/13 Online Filing Workbook for forms P35 and P14. But it will not be around to cope with the new regime that starts in April 2013.

A Payexcel spokesperson confirmed that the company's closure was down to Real Time Information (RTI).

"Although we had hoped to incorporate RTI in the PAYExcel workbook for next year, it has proved impractical to do so and this led us to reluctantly cease trade," he said.

Moved to Moneysoft from Sage a few years ago and it is an excellent piece of software, they have already been in touch to say they will be RTI compliant.

Found it to be easier to use than Sage and at less cost.

Option to email pdf's to clients works well and is now done for all clients so saves postage.

Do 40 payrolls a month, a mix of weekly and monthly and CIS Returns

I have used Moneysoft for a number of years and wouldn't even consider Sage (or Sage accounts etc for that). Moneysoft is, as endorsed by others an excellent product, ticks all the boxes, superb support and at the right price!

I've been using Earnie, now an Iris company, for years. They have supplied me with RTi-compliant software and I've been in the pilot scheme since July. I've got nothing but praise for the Earnie product and for their support staff.

Usual disclaimers.
