I've processed an employee on the wrong % tier for NHS pension, how do I correct this?

Resolution

In order to correct the calculation, unfortunately, we need to remove and re-process the incorrect periods.

First, make a backup of your current data.

For the affected employee print a copy of their P11 report. We will need this after we have corrected the pay records to work out the adjustment values for the employee, HMRC and the pension agency.

Once you have the P11 we need to delete the affected payslips:

Go to “Correct errors” | “Delete the record of a single payslip“.

Select the employee and the month from the drop-down menus to the right and click “OK“. When removing the payslips work BACKWARDS  from the most current to the oldest.

Repeat this process until you have deleted each incorrect payslip.

Before we re process, open the employee details > Pension Details and make sure they are set to the correct % contribution.

Go to “Payroll Calculations” | “Payrun for a SINGLE employee” and process each period for the employee back up to date.

Once completed print a copy of the now correct P11.

Check the difference between the original and corrected Net pay for the employee, any additional payment or deduction can be applied in your next payroll run.

Check the difference between the original and the corrected Tax / EE’s ER’s NIC. Any difference should be applied to your next payment to HMRC.

Check the difference between the original and corrected pension values. Any difference should be applied to your next payment to the pension agency.
