Summary

How to check your HMRC submissions in Sage 50 Payroll

Description

It's important that you view and reconcile the figures that you send HMRC in your full payment submission (FPS) and employer payment summary (EPS) each period.

You can easily reconcile your HMRC values using the FPS viewer and reconciliation reports below, so you can be confident about what you submit each period.

Resolution

FPS viewer

The FPS viewer lets you see what's been included in a particular FPS that you've already submitted. You also have the flexibility to add or remove columns from the list so you can see the exact information that's relevant to you.


  • Click e-Submissions, then click FPS Viewer

FPS liability - pre-update

You can run the FPS Liability report so that you have full visibility of your payment to HMRC. This report uses the values for the current period. If you make any amendments to pay before updating, you should re-run this report.

You should run this report every pay period, before you update your records.

  1. Click Pre-update Reports, then click Summary.
  2. Click FPS Liability Report.

FPS liability - post-update

You can use the FPS Reconciliation reports to reconcile the liability figures on your FPS. This enables you to look, at an employee level, how the liability has been calculated. You can run it by date or by employee.

Run this report every pay period, after you update your records but before you submit your FPS. This enables you to check the figures in the FPS wizard with this report before making the submission.

  1. Click Reports, then select the required tax year.
  2. Click FPS Reconciliation report - By Date or FPS Reconciliation report - By Employee.

If the message 'The report could not be generated. No data was returned for this report.' appears you should check you're running the correct report for the relevant tax year.


EPS Reconciliation Totals

It's important that each EPS you make includes the cumulative, year to date values of your statutory payments.

The EPS wizard automatically calculates the cumulative totals of your statutory payments, which you're unlikely to ever need to amend. You can use this report to confirm the values in the EPS wizard are accurate.

If you're including values for CIS deductions suffered in the EPS, these must also be cumulative year to date totals. Since these are not recorded in Sage 50 Payroll, you must enter them manually in the wizard. They're not included in this report.

Run this report every pay period, after you update your records but before you submit your EPS. This enables you to check the figures in the EPS wizard with this report before making the submission.

  1. Click Reports, then click Period End.
  2. Click EPS Reconciliation Totals only.

EPS Reconciliation report

If you're unsure how the figures in the EPS wizard or the EPS totals report have been calculated, you can use this report to view each employee's statutory payment figures. You can then manually calculate the totals to see how the figure in the wizard has been reached.

Run this report every pay period, after you update your records but before you submit your EPS.

You may only want to run this report if you're unsure of the total on the EPS totals report. Since CIS deductions suffered are not recorded in Sage 50 Payroll, you must enter them manually in the wizard. They're not included in this report.

  1. Click Reports, then click Period End.
  2. Click EPS Reconciliation report - By Date.
