Employee being paid over tax free threshold but no PAYE recorded on their payslip?

I have a new employee and have set them up on Quickbooks payroll. They are being paid above the tax free threshold but when I run payroll for them their payslip does not record any PAYE owed. I have submitted the same information to HMRC so I am concerned that I have not properly notified HMRC of my employee's contributions. I have no issue with NIC, which has been recorded correctly.

Hi david112

 

 

On the main payroll page you should have the periods you have submitted under the Payroll History heading. Click into the pay period > Use the drop down menu in the Actions field and select delete payroll > Enter YES in the 'Still want to delete?' field > delete > select employees > select the employee that you would like to amend > select Pay History > enter the year to date figures > save 

Run the payroll as you did before > select submit and then go to the taxes section on the left hand side menu > Payroll tax > select the relevant FPS use the drop down menu and select correction to earlier submission.

Hi david112,

 

Thanks for sharing your post on the Community.

 

Has this employee previously been paid by another employer this tax year, and if so does the employee have the correct year-to-date information entered within their settings?

Hi Georgie,

 

Thanks for your help.

 

The employee had been paid by a previous employer (£7,525.20 to date) but I had not input this information until after I had run payroll (my error). I have since input the pay to date information.

Thanks for getting back to me david112, it's great that you've noticed the error and have taken the correct steps to ammend this. 

 

To correct the payroll now the YTD figures are entered, you'll need to roll-back, re-run and re-submit this as a correction to an earlier submission (this will overwrite the existing submission with HMRC for this period).

 

Please confirm whether you are using the Standard or Advanced Payroll software within QuickBooks so we can provide steps of how to do this if you are unsure. If you are using the Standard payroll, this will appear as two tabs for 'Employees' and 'Payroll' when selecting 'Employees' from the left-navigation menu. 

 

Thanks

Thanks Georgia. I am definitely using the Standard payroll so if you could provide steps for this type then I would very much appreciate it.
