NI category Letter incorrect

Tax year-end April 2021 - an employee who is a director should have changed from NI letter M to Letter A on our payroll run on 29th April.

Unfortunately (my mistake) I did not check to see if this had been done automatically by QB and went ahead with PAYE payroll.

I have now looked at payroll for the May 29th PAYE run and notice it wasn't amended to letter A at the start of the new tax year.

Am I correct in thinking that I can not amend this partway through the tax year, to reflect the correct NI category letter?

Please could someone advise on what I can do? 

many thanks

JD

Hello JD01234,  Thank you for reaching out about the change in the NI letter. Are you using Standard payroll? in that case yes you can not amend the NI letter mid-year. You would need to roll back the payroll to the start of the tax year(it is best to download payslips of already run pay runs so you can recreate the pay run) and make the change to NI letter and save it and then re-run the payrolls ran from the start of the tax year and submit the FPS as a correction to the previous submission.
