The department is in weekly touch with HMRC about the progress of the RTI pilot and are pleased to note that there are now over 1,850 schemes operating RTI successfully. The pilot is designed to help HMRC to test and refine RTI processes for PAYE. Information from HMRC's pilot and research will be used by DWP, in conjunction with its own research, to analyse the potential effects of employer behaviour under RTI on working universal credit claimants.
