Real Time Information (RTI) is a Government programme aimed at improving the operation of Pay As You Earn (PAYE) and supports the Government intention of introducing Universal Credits. Employers have been compliant and operating with PAYE real time since the 2013/2014 tax year.

Ceridian’s Service for RTI

RTI data that is required to be sent to HMRC will be automatically carried out for employers using the Ceridian RTI Electronic Exchange service.


The Ceridian RTI Electronic Exchange service has been designed to take away much of the administrative reporting burden to HMRC. It fully supports the submission of RTI data to HMRC in relation to your payroll operation, and along with the HMRC online services, offers an overarching solution to employer RTI needs.

The service is built on the same Ceridian technology as the current in year and end of year Electronic Exchange Service which has been partnered with HMRC since 1999.

If you run a business and employ people there are actions you need to take now to get ready to send payroll information in real time.
