If you find a mistake with the values submitted in your last Full Payment Submission (FPS) of the year, what you need to do depends on the type of mistake and when you find it. 



What to do

Wrong payments or deductions

By 19 April       

You'll need to resend the last FPS with corrected figures:

  1. Locate and delete only the affected employee paycheque(s) *
  2. If applicable, accept the warning about the paycheque(s) aready being sent in an FPS.
  3. Reprocess the relevant paycheque(s) with the correct date and values.
  4. Resend an FPS for the reprocessed paycheque(s) **
  5. Ensure the FPS Late Reporting Reason is set to H - Correction to earlier submission.

Wrong payments or deductions

After 19 April

You’ll need to submit an Earlier Year Update (EYU) after you start the new payroll year 2018-19:

  1. In your 2018-19 company, go to Command Centres> Payroll> Earlier Year Update ***
  2. Select the Tax Year you wish to correct.
  3. 'Zoom' [»] into the affected employee's EYU figures.
  4. Enter the correct final YTD values into the New Amount column for the relevant fields.
  5. AccountEdge will submit the difference between the original and corrected YTD amounts.


*    You only need to delete and reprocess the employee paycheque(s) that have errors. Detailed instructions about deleting transactions can be found here.

**  You can mark this FPS as a Final Submission, if you wish. If in doubt about whether you have sent your end of year Final Submission declaration, select Final Submission with this FPS.
