Deadline for employers’ final PAYE return for 2018/19

Friday 19th April 2019 is the deadline for employers’ final PAYE return to be submitted online for the year 2018-19!

As usual your final Full Payment Summary (FPS) should be done on or before the last pay day for the period. This would mean all of your FPS returns were filed by 5 April 2019 for the 2018-19 tax year in order to comply with HMRC regulations.

If for some reason this wasn’t possible, or you need to resubmit an FPS then you must do this by 19 April 2019 at the very latest, as this is the HMRC cut-off date for 2018-19 FPS submissions. After this date you will not be able to file an FPS relating to 2018-19, therefore if any amendments or corrections need to be made to the details that have been submitted, then you will need to submit an Earlier Year Update (EYU).

Some payroll providers also require a final Employer Payment Summary (EPS) in addition to a final FPS. If required, the final EPS is due for submission by 19 April 2019.
