Recognition for RTI and for Expenses and Benefits (EXB)

04 June 2018

HMRC’s Software Developers Support Team (SDST) provided the following message:

“In February 2018, SDST updated the RTI technical specifications with details of the RTI Recognition process for 2018-19. The Recognition process for Expenses and Benefits (EXB) for 2017-18 was updated earlier.

We keep under review the list of payroll software suppliers and products, and will shortly be removing details of suppliers/products which have not successfully renewed their Recognition.

If you had Recognition for your submission product for the previous year and have not yet renewed this for the new tax year, please get your application to us on or before 29 June 2018.  Instructions can be found in the 2018-19 section of the RTI technical specifications. For 2017-18 EXB, please refer to these specifications.

Please note that the deadline is for receipt of applications, not for completing the Recognition process. Applications received by the deadline will be acknowledged by SDST and reviewed in the weeks following.

If your product has not had Recognition before, we would encourage you to apply.  SDST will be pleased to help you with the process, which we have simplified, and there is no deadline for new applicants.”
