Using an EYU

If you discover a payroll reporting error on or after 20 April in the following tax year, you should submit an EYU. You can submit an EYU to correct FPS information for up to six years after you filed your original FPS. You can only use an EYU for the tax years where you operated PAYE in real time.


EYU should only record the difference between what you had originally submitted on the final FPS and what the figure should be.
