How Do I Amend a Previously Submitted EPS?

How Do I Amend a Previously Submitted EPS?

You can use RTI Corrections to amend and resubmit corrections of Employment Payment Summary (EPS) files to HMRC. You can also use RTI Corrections to submit Earlier Year Update (EYU) files. Once you have amended/created the EPS or EYU files, you can send them to HMRC via the FBI Mailbox.

You can resubmit an EPS to HMRC any time. You can send a FPS to HMRC for the previous month up until the 19th of the following month. 19th April is the last month in which you can submit a FPS for the preceding tax year. But if you want to make any amendments to a FPS for the preceding tax year after that date, you must use an EYU. Therefore you could potentially have a FPS and one or more EYUs submitted for that tax year.
In exceptional cases, you can create new EYU files for previously paid employees who have no records in the system and for whom you have never submitted FPS information. For more information, see How Do I Submit EYUs for Employees with No Previous FPS Submitted?
I have recently found out that I can reclaim the Employment Allowance for a previous tax year. I need to update the latest Employer Payment Summary file for the relevant tax year and resubmit it to HMRC.

To amend an eps

  1. Navigate to the HMRC Form Processing window.
    Go to Cintra iQ: Tool bar> FBI icon

  2. Click the Open FBI Mailbox button. The File By Internet window appears.
  3. Click Tool bar> RTI Corrections. The RTI Corrections and Amendments form appears.
  4. Ensure the Supported Document is EPS.
  5. Select the desired Known PAYE Scheme.
  6. Select the desired Tax Year.
  7. Click the Find Latest Submission button. The Employer Payment Summary for ... form appears. This form displays all of the data submitted on the latest EPS file for the tax year.
  8. Amend the desired fields.
  9. Click the Save button. A message appears stating the location to where the file is saved.
  10. Click the OK button. You are returned to the RTI Corrections and Amendments form. The file is saved to the InternetReturns folder and can be seen in the FBI Outbox, waiting for you to resend it to HMRC.
Because RTI Corrections automatically creates each file as a new version of the previous file, the file's name begins with the name of the original file and ends with a sequence number.
