Postponement of NICs Bill – update on impact on payroll software changes for class 1A

19 January 2018

Further to the communication from SDST last November about the one year delay to the implementation of the NICs Bill and the subsequent decision by HMRC to reverse the changes originally published in the RTI RIM Artefacts for 2018/19 to align with the new delivery date of April 2019, an update has been provided:

Payroll software developers can now test the removal of data items 190 and 191 from the 2018/19 FPS message against ETS, TPVS and VSIPS and also using the Local Test Service.

IMPORTANT REMINDER: the VSIPS URL https://secure.dev.gateway.gov.uk/submission will be withdrawn on 14 February 2018, please use the replacement ETS URL https://test-transaction-engine.tax.service.gov.uk/submission.
