Generally, employees probably won't see much, if any, difference in their working day. However, using RTI, employers and pension providers will need to ensure that their employee records are up to date. They will also send information to HMRC when or before they pay their employees. This better quality, more up-to-date information will mean that, over time, more people will pay the correct tax in-year.

HMRC will also have the RTI needed to support the introduction of the DWP's Universal Credit in October 2013. Universal Credit will need up to date information about employment and pension income from RTI so that the DWP can adjust claimants' welfare payments to reflect their circumstances.
