I just reviewed a client's payroll and I can see some mistakes have been made when they set it up... specifically 'earnings at LEL', 'LEL to PT', etc were not populated. Hence the YTD earnings subject to NI on their monthly FPS are being understated. And will be understated on the P60 at year end I assume.
QBOP lets me correct these YTD figures but then doesn't save them when I click 'Save', so I assume they cannot be altered once a payroll has been run?
What do folks think is the easiest way out of this particular ****-up? :-) I'm thinking either:
1. Wipe the payroll and start again - only 4 payrolls x 2 employees so not too much work. Then resubmit each month's FPS as I go. But how would I do this? Set up 2 new employees from scratch and then inactivate the 2 existing employee records?
2. Let it run to month 12, as the errors have no immediate consequence. Submit a corrected M12 FPS using different software (e.g. Basic PAYE Tools) so the year-end position and P60 are right at least.
When you say 'rollback the pay runs', you mean delete the 4 payrolls that they have run to date? And that will let me edit the setup data again? That would be a better/simpler approach for my option 1, rather than deleting the employee records...
Also - is there a way to avoid submitting the FPS when you run a payroll?
(As I don't see much point in re-submitting the FPS already sent, although to comply with the rules 100% they probably should.)
