Exciting announcement... Albany's validation solution is evolving and Bottomline Technologies has further enhanced this easy-to-use bank validation solution to now include personal verification with a brand new user interface.

Authenticating data... costs less than correcting errors!

Validating and verifying data at point of capture enables you to increase confidence when collecting cash or making payments, as well as minimise the risk of fraudulent activity.

The new solution is due for release next month, so watch this space. Alternatively, please contact us.

2. RTI is around the corner...

Albany Bottomline Newsletter.jpg

If you’ve not already updated your payroll and Bacs software to accommodate HMRC Real Time Information submissions, you may find it difficult to meet the looming deadline of 6 April 2013

If your company hasn't yet taken action, you still need to go ahead and make the necessary arrangements to ensure that your payroll and payments solutions are RTI-ready. Penalties will be incurred by HMRC in due course.

For those companies that still need to activate their solution (configure file definitions to carry RTI reference) or can't get a pre-April install date for updated Bacs software, you must still send the PAYE RTI data from your payroll software as of your first pay-day on, or after, 6 April 2013 – this is the most critical task!  Inform HMRC this is the situation and advise them when your Bacs install or configuration will be.

If you would like more information about this initiative, please email or visit the HMRC website.
