Thanks for the clarification, @WC2019.

 

I’m here to share with you some insight in filing your FPS and how to get around this issue. If you did not pay any employees in a tax month, you still need to run payroll and submit an EPS (Employer Payment Summary)to HMRC, more information on that here. You must send this by the 19th after the tax month you didn't pay any employees. 

 

if you are looking to cease the payroll on our standard payroll you made need to do that through HMRC basic tools.

 

For more details and guidelines from HMRC about this, you can visit this link for reference: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/what-payroll-information-to-report-to-hmrc

To be guided, you can refer to this article for the complete details: Submit FPS to HMRC in QuickBooks Online Standard Payroll (UK).

In case you have other questions or concerns, you can always get back to me in this thread. I’ll be around ready to help you. Keep safe and take care!

Hello WC2019, What happens when you go file the FPS  do you get any messages pop up? Which payroll is this in the standard or advanced payroll and is this the first FPS you are submitting?Thanks

Hi, it was filing FPS reports while i was paying employees in standard payroll.

when i marked myself as a leaver in september and submitted a pay run, it changed the report to HMRC to an EPS. In order for me to no longer be a contributor of PAYE i need to file a last zero FPS, but i cant see anywhere where i can change?

So far i have submitted 3 zero payslips submissions. 

Thank you

Thanks for your reply @JasroV 

 

The reason I was wanting to file an FPS is because HMRC told me to do so to stop our company being PAYE registered and having to run payroll every month with no balance.

 

Have I been miss informed?

 

Apologies and thanks
