PAYE Updates for 2021

PAYE Update 2021


Have you missed submitting your Final Payroll Submission (FPS)?

The rules have changed slightly on making amendments to the tax year ending 5th April 2021. You will no longer be able to submit the Earlier Year Update (EYU) to make amendments.

If you’re late sending your final report

From 20 April you can send an FPS to correct your 2020 to 2021 tax year payroll data by giving the year-to-date figures.

Late reporting reason H should be used on all FPS submissions which correct earlier payroll data. You can find out more here.

Minimum Wage

Don’t forget the national minimum wage went up in April 2021. You can find the new rates here.

You can also find out more about calculating the minimum wage here.
