Problem

How do I activate employment allowance in PAYE-Master?

Resolution

To activate employment allowance go to "Pay" > "Employment Allowance":



Set the option for employment allowance here to "Yes". The values for amount remaining for current and previous years should be left unchanged unless you are taking over payroll part way through the tax year.


For further details watch the short video below.


PLEASE NOTE: Employment allowance status is reported to HMRC via the EPS. The EPS does not include any values for employment allowance. When you activate employment allowance the next EPS you send will show the status as "Yes". HMRC do not need to hear anything else about employment allowance until the status changes, as such further EPS submissions (EVEN IF RESENT FOR THE SAME PERIOD) will show the status as "None". If you then deactivate employment allowance the next EPS will show the status as "No".


Employment allowance will not be available unless you are in 2014/15 or later.


 



 


  • Activate the Employment Allowance in the Pay menu (not the Pay icon) option by saying “Yes” and choosing “Save”

  • Calculate the payroll (even if already calculated, it must be calculated again for the Employment Allowance to work)

  • Finalise the payroll

  • Check the PAYE Remittance report
