RTI double and employee has to pay higher tax

Postby 170872 » Tue Dec 22, 2020 10:32 am

Hi all,

When a RTI has been submitted multiple time in a month due to payroll error by a new bookkeeper in the last year.

One of our employee has come back with HMRC print out which shows that multiple RTI was submitted in one month and as a result HMRC is seeking higher tax from her. We asked our accountant and they said even multiple RTI was submitted, at year end it will all even out at year end and nothing to worry about and no earlier year update is required and the employee need to contact her personal tax office to rectify this.

Is this correct. We need to help our employee

Will be grateful if someone had the same experience and how to resolve this issue please.

Thanks in advance.

There is no useable information in that question.

What was/is the error?

Which month (and year) was this error?

Is the year pay to date and tax to date position correct for whatever year this matter refers?

In what way has HMRC sought more tax?

Ideally employer should confirm in writing correct totals on company letterhead (ideally copy of p11 supplied - p60 aftre year end) and at the same time request if these are not the figures shown on their internal systems they contact our payroll agent to ensure figures are corrected as approrpiate.

at that stage employee should have provided sufficient proof to hmrc so that they arent being penalised and hmrc know correct figures and they take up any issues with approrpiate party.
