When to send EPS submissions

When can I submit EPS submissions?

Didn't find your answer?

Hello, so if I have any EPS submissions to make I always wait until after the 5th following the month end and then submit between 6-19th. Must I do this or can I actually send my EPS submissions at the same time as FPS submissions? It would just be more practical.

Eg, payroll month ends and is paid 30th/31st - Can I submit EPS submission along with FPS on or before those dates?

Also, whilst asking - CIS300 submissions - must I again wait until after 5th but no later than 19th to submit?

I always send my EPS at the same time as the FPS. I can't answer regarding the CIS300 as I don't have any.

It depends. I must admit, I always send in the EPS claiming Employer's Allowance with the first FPS. Never been a problem.

But if you've got a weekly paid employee on SMP, you'd need to submit four or five EPSs a month. Which might not work so well.

So it depends why you're submitting them and whether there's a possibility of another one being due.

CIS 300 - fine to submit early if you KNOW there'll be no more payments before the 5th. If you did it on a regular basis, it might raise an eyebrow and prompt a visit at HMRC. Or it might not. The odd occasion, prior to going on holiday, perhaps, won't cause a problem.

I refuse to do weekly payrolls so that isn't a problem for me.

I'm with the submit with FPS brigade. You can also submit the CIS300 before 5th.

Thanks, these are monthly payrolls. I'm asking because whilst they're rare for me I've SMP going through for the next year'ish.

I suspect the guidance to submit between 6-19th the following month (and not earlier) was from early days of RTI and now I can submit earlier - but I wasn't sure.
