Making your final payroll submission of the tax year

The end of the tax year is fast approaching. If you are paying your PA in the next few days, you will need to remember to put ‘Yes’ in the ‘Final submission for year’ field in your payroll software.

Usually you do this in your Full Payment Submission (FPS) however sometimes, depending on the circumstances, you will do this in your Employer Payment Summary (EPS) (e.g. where you didn’t pay anyone in the final pay period of the tax year).

For more on making your final submission see the GOV.UK guidance.

Users of HMRC’s Basic PAYE Tools (BPT) should check the user guide which contains step by step help on the most common functions of BPT, including how to make final submissions for the tax year.
