To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, whether the Government made an assessment of the potential merits of a conversion plan when introducing provisions on real-time information reporting to HMRC in order to mitigate the additional tax payable during the second 12-month period of the scheme as a result of moving the start of the tax year in 2013-14 from 1 April to 6 April.

There were no changes made to the start of the tax year for Pay As You Earn (PAYE) as a result of the introduction of Real Time Information (RTI) which remained 6 April, or to the deadlines for paying the tax, National Insurance contributions and any other deductions due.

As RTI was not expected to affect the annual levels of tax receipts, no conversion plan for additional tax payable was considered for 2013-14.
