Yes, HMRC are now able to process requests for annual payrolls.
An annual scheme must meet all of the following requirements:
- all the employees are paid annually
- all the employees are paid at the same time/same date
- the employer is only required to pay HMRC annually
Once a business is registered as an annual scheme, an Employer Payment Summary (EPS) is not required for the 11 months of the tax year where no payments are made to the employees.
We all have busy schedules………
Annual schemes are likely to be adopted mainly by very small businesses and single person companies as you can pay all your salary in one go and save yourself 11 months of RTI reporting.
