Employer returns: RTI submissions: employer alignment

Alignment

In order for an employer to submit an Employer Alignment Submission (EAS) or first Full Payment Submission (FPS) and successfully go through payroll alignment, alignment tolerances are set to ensure that the number of employments and individual TRN created and / or ceased for a PAYE scheme, do not exceed set limits. The migration team will set these tolerances following the addition of a mandation date on EBS; this will allow HMRC to manage any exceptions that arise.
