I need to file EPS return for Month 7. But the EPS for Month 6, which is overdue and also cannot be filed, is blocking the filing of Month7. How do I resolve this?

Hello there, simonb1,

 

You can only submit EPS (Employer Payment Submission) between the 6th and 19th of the month. If you miss the submission period, you can submit the EPS in the following month.

 

You might not be able to file the EPS if:

  • If you have paid employees within the current pay period (no payment period is indicated), FPS filings have been submitted.
  • You haven't paid SMP or SPP before sending EPS.
  • You have outstanding payrolls for the month. Then the EPS filing is listed, but cannot be submitted until you’ve run all payroll for the tax month.

To submit EPS to HMRC, you can follow these steps: 

 

  1. Select Taxes, then select Payroll Tax.
  2. In the Payroll Tax Center, you'll see that if you have an EPS filing that needs to be sent, it is listed under Due Now with a status of Overdue and the date that it was supposed to be sent.
  3. Select the EPS and view the details.
  4. Click Submit.
  5. Enter your HMRC credentials, then click Submit.

To know the status of the submitted return, you can see all previous filings from the Payroll Tax Centre.

 

If you have any other QuickBooks issues, don't hesitate to post again. I'm happy to help you.
