Entity PAYE Configuration
Use this screen to manage the entities PAYE settings.
Date RTI FPS Last Filed
Enter the date of filing of the last FPS. This date will be updated by the system each time an FPS is successfully filed.
Date P11D Last Filed
Enter the date of filing of the last P11D's. This date will be updated by the system each time P11D's are successfully filed.
Claim Employment Allowance
Tick this box if the entity is entitled to claim employment allowance. Note an EPS (Employer Payment Summary) will subsequently need to be submitted to HMRC to confirm that the employment allowance will be claimed. Submit an EPS via the HMRC menu.
Where an amount of employment allowance has been already claimed in a another payroll system, enter that amount in the Allowance Already Claimed field. If that is not the case leave the field blank
Accounting Options - Small Employer Relief Case
Refer to www.gov.uk for information on current rates and thresholds applying to Small Employer Relief. As at 2017/2018 businesses paying less than £45,000 p.a. in National Insurance contributions were eligible for Small Employer Relief.
If the business is defined in the business profile as entitled to Small Employer Relief Liberty Accounts will calculate the SMP/SPP/SAP that may be recovered (100%) and the NIC compensation that may be claimed by the employer (3.0 %). Note that the calculation is applied as part of the payroll run so if your Small Employer status changes mid-year you should take professional advice.
If the user defines their business as not entitled to Small Employer Relief Liberty Accounts will calculate the SMP/SPP/SAP that may be recovered (92%) using the standard rate.
Your PAYE reference consists of the three digit tax office number followed by the employer reference supplied by the tax office. ( e.g. 123 / A12345 ). This field must be completed correctly if you are using online filing for PAYE.
PAYE Accounts Office Reference
The PAYE accounts office reference is another reference used by HMRC to track payments. It should not be confused with the PAYE employer reference. For RTI purposes this field is a required field. The information can be found on a 30BC payment booklet or P30B (Paying Electronically).
Tax Office Name and Address
Enter the address of the tax office with the tax office name on the first line.
Payroll Run Defaults
Payroll run defaults will populate the relevant fields during payroll run processing.
Select a default payroll admin group from the dropdown.
Tick the Payslips box to automatically email payslips to employees when the FPS for the pay run is successfully filed with HMRC.
Tick the RTI filing box for the system to automatically submit an FPS to HMRC on the due date.
To auto-post the net pay tick the box. In the fields that appear select the bank account to post-to and whether individual or aggregate amounts are preferred.
Changes in the Finance Act 2015 allow HMRC to collect income tax on most benefits in kind through the payroll from 6 April 2016. Employers who register with HMRC to use the online payrolling benefits-in-kind (PBIK) service will not have to report them on a P11D form. For the Income Tax year 2017-18 the deadline for registration with HMRC is 5 April 2017. Employers will not be able to register after this date for 2017/18, because HMRC is unable to process changes during the tax year.
Use this screen to select those benefits for payrolling that have been registered with HMRC.
Select the payrolled benefits and SUBMIT to confirm.
Note each benefit being payrolled will need to be set up as a Pay Element. Global Pay Elements are set up and maintained from the menu item under Configure Payroll. A pay element is simply an item of remuneration or deduction which is to be included in the calculation of net pay, in this case each benefit. Pay elements will appear as line items on an individual payslip.
