What are the RTI Correction Forms?

What are the RTI Correction Forms?

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.

Within RTI Corrections, you can perform the following:
  1. Resubmit EPS files.
  2. Submit EYU files to correct previous years' FPS/EYU submissions.
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.

About the RTI Corrections and Amendments form

Within the RTI Corrections and Amendments form you can perform the following:
  1. Amend a previously submitted FPS/EPS.
  2. Submit an EYU for an employee who has never had a FPS submitted
To navigate to the RTI Corrections and Amendments form
  1. Go to Cintra iQ: Payroll> Payroll Tools> HMRC> File by Internet Or Menu bar> FBI. The HMRC Form Processing for... window appears.
  2. Click the Open FBI Mailbox button. The File By Internet window appears.
