Why it’s important to make sure your data is accurate

HMRC state that over 80% of data quality problems are caused by holding incorrect information about an employee’s name, date of birth or National Insurance number.
Under PAYE Real Time Information (RTI), the information that you submit to HMRC every time you pay your employees is matched against records HMRC stores on their National Insurance and PAYE Service (NPS).

If the records you submit don’t match, you may trigger creating duplicate or inaccurate records which may result in incorrect tax calculations or HMRC compliance checks.

We can help you to make sure the information you hold about your employees is correct, so you can avoid any unnecessary stresses.

What information do I need to record?

To make sure you have the correct details for your employees, wherever possible check the information you need from an official source, such as:

  • HMRC or Department for Work and Pensions documentation
  • A passport
  • A birth certificate
