How do I correct employer NI overpayment to HMRC included in FPS?

I mistakenly put an apprentice on NI Cat A and run the first payroll and submitted the FPS. I have corrected the NI Cat to H but the FPS contains an error because there was an amount of employer NI contributions when it should have been 0.00 which will result in an overpayment of employer NI.

How do I correct employer NI overpayment to HMRC included in FPS?

Hello there, @Kapnutz.

 

To make sure we're on the same page, may I ask what is the specific error that you received on your Real Time Information (RTI) log? Any extra details would be greatly appreciated.

 

On the other hand, you can delete and recreate the payroll. This way you can resend the FPS to HMRC to overwrite the one that was previously submitted. If there's an overpayment, HMRC will give you the option to issue a refund or auto deduct the amount on your next payment.

How do I correct employer NI overpayment to HMRC included in FPS?

Hi BettyJaneB,

The reason for needing to correct was that I put a new employee NI Cat as A when they are only 18 so should have been either Cat H or M. HMRC asked me to check the Cat and date of birth which is when I realised the error. This is my first payroll since migrating to QuickBooks Online Standard Payroll and I also needed to put the amount of employment allowance used to date in which I hadn't done on the original run. 

The easiest solution was as suggested - delete the entire pay run correct everything and re run and submit a new FPS to replace the incorrect one. 

I assume that it does overwrite the FPS submitted?

Thanks

Thanks for the reply, Kapnutz.

 

Whenever you run payroll, QuickBooks will automatically submit your FPS to HMRC. That means, once you delete and recreate the payroll.

 

You can always refer to this guide if you have more questions about payroll:
