Quickbooks Simple Start Advanced Payroll - Submit Final Payroll 2020-2021

So apparently I run Quickbooks Simple Start Advanced Payroll.  I do not have any more employees, and don't foresee that I will employ anyone more, so I want to submit final payroll for 2020-21 and close down the payroll.  But I cannot find how to do this anywhere, not in payroll, not in help, nowhere.  I found an article explaining how to do this for 2019-20 but it's of the old system and thus no longer relevant.

 

I'm really hoping someone can help me with this please?

Many thanks in advance

Additional - HMRC's website says that I must submit a final FPS before closing down the payroll, but I can't see how to submit the final FPS - I started a new payroll, but there's nothing in there to say "This is the final payroll of the tax year".

Thanks for posting in the Community space, @SummerHouse.

 

We follow HMRC's tax period. That's why we're unable to submit the final payroll for 2020-2021. As a workaround, you can directly submit the EPS to them.

 

Here's how:

 

  1. Go to the Payroll tab.
  2. Select Reports, then click EPS.
  3. Click on Submit EPS and tick the option Final EPS for the Tax year. This is the final EPS because the PAYE scheme has ceased.

For more information and tips, you can check out these articles. They serve as a reference in filing EPS and other tasks in QuickBooks:

Hi, 

 

I'm trying to do the same. I ran payroll and my FPS was automatically sent to HMRC before I could mark that it was the last one or indeed send an EPS. I couldn't find the EPS in Payroll/Reports either. I want to close down my payroll and my business and Quickbooks as I am no longer trading. How do I do that? Will I get a refund from my quickbooks as I just paid my monthly bill. 

 

Thanks

Hello Victoria, thanks for commenting on this thread can you just confirm which payroll it is you are using in Quickbooks is it advanced or standard?
