Test service updates for PAYE RTI and DPS

23 October 2017

HMRC’s Software Developers Support Team (SDST) has confirmed that the online test services (TPVS, ETS and VSIPS) have been updated to support version 1.1 of the 2018/19 RTI RIM artefacts. 

This update includes the new rule on the FPS message to mandate the inclusion of the ‘PlanType’ attribute when a Student Loan repayment in the pay period (data item 67) is being reported.

Version 1.1 of the 2018/19 artefacts are also available to download from the LTS Update Manager into the Local Test Service.

The Data Provisioning Service (DPS) test service has also been updated to include notifications relating to the forthcoming 2018/19 tax year.

The SDST Team can be contacted by email at sdsteam@hmrc.gsi.gov.uk with any queries about these updates.
