Problem

How do I use the option to report "No employees will be paid in future months" on the employer payment summary.

Resolution

The EPS can send to HMRC notification that no employee are due to be paid in a PAYE scheme for up to 12 months into the future.

This can be used to keep a PAYE scheme active with HMRC without having to send individual monthly ERS submissions.

NOTES: Any submission reporting no employees paid MUST be sent BEFORE the start date on the periods selected. Ie. If you are send an EPS reporting no one to be paid between 06/05/2014 to 05/11/2014 this would need to be sent BEFORE the 6th May 2014.

You will see the following errors if the future period from and to dates are incorrect:

You will see the above error if the “Date To” field is before today’s date ie. The date you are sending the submission. This error would appear as soon as you click next.

This error is returned from HMRC gateway at the end of the process if the “Date From” selected IS NOT the start of the next tax month from today’s date ie. The date you are sending the submission. This error was produced by sending an EPS reporting no employees paid from 06/05/2014 but actually sending the report on the 30/06/2014.

NOTES: When you select the month on the EPS screen and tick the option “No employees will be paid in future months” it will select the 6th of the following TAX MONTH:

This is correct, remember we are sending “No employees will be paid in future months”
