Correcting an EYU submission

How do I correct an Final submission for 2019/2020

Didn't find your answer?

One of my payrolls is a complete nightmare, I am talking about March 2020, all prior submissions were correct,

The company was going to close, they had already involved an Insolvency practitioner

I was given a the figures for the closing payroll, dates for staff to receive P45s, etc, all agree and authorised in writing, submission sent- which includes last submission of year tick box, P45’s issued

Then I was told, no we have to redo it all, we have to include the redundancy pay, written authorisation to redo the payroll, resubmit the RTI and an EPS

Then was told, no we can’t do the redundancy because the insolvency practitioners will calculate the redundancies, and it went on

The upshot is, the two directors who are also employees have a

Pay & Tax Discrepancy letter, outlining the pay details as received by HMRC and saying the details must be corrected through RTI

I have spoken to the payroll software  help desk and the advise was to correct it through Basic PAYE Tools, the letter from HMRC says correct it through Basic Paye tools,

I have downloaded the Basic Paye tools –I think if I read it correctly, I have to enter not just the staff that need correcting, but all staff past and present including wages totals to Month 11, then resubmit month 12 with basic tools,

Basic tools says it can only be used for 10 employees, this company has had during the year around 50 staff,

Any suggestions, do you know of any way I can correct his payroll

Do you know of the address I can send a written correction to, are HMRC PAYE obliged to take a written correction, or do I have to find a way to correct this online

Or in fact – do you know of a payroll specialist company that can do the correction for me

Your suggestions would be much appreciated

Yes, but it is asking for all the employees, can I just enter the employees that need correcting, and just enter the correction, ?

I have used Basic PAYE Tools in the oast to submit an EYU, but just for the employee concerned, not the whole workforce. What ends up being submitted is just the correction/difference, even though you might be asked to enter original and corrected figures

I'll have a go, it's bonkers there isn't a simpler way, I was hoping for a simple, here's the address, send in a paper copy - life on paper is sometimes so much easier

You only need to add the employees being corrected. For EYU there is no strict limit. That relates to periodic FPS use. You can apply the adjustment values alone, or else you need the correct values and the original and the BPT will submit the difference adjustments.

Since 2019 you can resend the FPS submission with the correct values if you have the software that will allow it.

Often HMRC May suggest an EYU for their duplication issues, only the HMRC resolution team can really correct those. Other times they will indicate a requirement but fail to provide the details of what the adjustment should be.

This is an area that I specialise in and can do corrective submissions if the before and after and PAYE Scheme Information is provided.

Making corrections to HMRC misbalance can be complex and tricky. The primary issue is obtaining values of what HMRC actually hold.

No problem. If the original FPS is incorrect, then you could send a mini FPS with just the requested employee correct year to date values with a suitable late reporting reason ‘H’ correction.

If the original was actually accurate, then sounds like an HMRC issue which they really need to resolve.
