RTI - Not as Real Time as implied

During the week I had need to phone HMRC to discuss an issue regarding an Employer Payment Submission (EPS) which I had submitted to and had confirmed as received electronically by HMRC, nothing unusual in this you might think but during our discussion it came to light that all of the submissions whether they are made by employers, accountants, payroll bureaux only get downloaded by HMRC on the 6th or 22nd of each month.  

When RTI was first discussed and in the months leading up to it going live many of us in the accounting profession wondered how HMRC would cope with all of these submissions being made every minute of every day, well now it is clear, they don't have to deal with it all of the time just twice a month.
