How do i fix a Tax code update errors Tax code updates could not be applied due to an error: The token is missing or is of the wrong data type.

Hi there, boldonelectrical.

 

The error usually shows up if there's something incorrect or missing with your HMRC credentials entered in Payrun Settings. You can follow these steps to update the login details:

 

  1. Go to the Payroll menu and proceed to the Payroll Settings tab.
  2. Click HMRC Settings, then scroll-down to RTI settings.
  3. Update the HMRC user id and HMRC password
  4. Click Save.

 

You can also enter your HMRC credentials for PAYE on the HMRC portal to check if they are correct. If successful, also check the PAYE for employers messages and ensure that  P6, P6(B) and P0 are all set to Yes.


Once done, you can either delete and recreate the pay run to check if the error is no longer there. You can also contact our Payroll Support Team just in case the error persists. 
 

Please don't hesitate to reach out to us again or reply below if you need anything else.

Hello Boldonelectrical, 

 

Welcome to the Community page, 

 

Can we ask is this a tax code for payroll where you are getting the error or is it the tax code for when you select on an expense or invoice where you are getting this error? 

 

Could you please provide us with more information so we can help resolve your issue.
