When you process a pay run you need to lodge a Full Payment Summary (FPS) to HMRC.
You need to lodge an FPS on or before the employee's pay day.
Before you lodge your first FPS, you need to make sure you've correctly configured your RTI username and password under the HMRC settings section.
Once you have entered your RTI details, create your pay run as normal, then when you finalise your pay run, you will be able to select your pay run lodging options.
- Lodge Pay Run now - will lodge your pay run to HMRC as soon as you click the finalise button.
- Lodge Pay Run manually at a later date - will not lodge your pay run to HMRC until you click the Lodge pay run button on the pay run screen (see below for more details).
Once you've finalised your pay run, your FPS will be lodged with HMRC.
If you've selected to manually lodge your FPS, you can do so by clicking the Lodge Pay Run button under the Actions tab within the pay run.
And that's it! Your FPS has now been filed with HMRC.
To mark a late submission, simply to go the pay run screen where you'll find the option Mark as late submission under Pay Run Actions. Here you can also provide the reason for the late submission.
When you lodge an FPS to HMRC in RTI you can check the RTI lodgement messages by going to Reports and then RTI Lodgement Messages. When you go to the lodgement messages you will be able to see messages such as if your lodgement has been lodged , lodged successfully, failed etc.
