Manual FPS

Post by itpba » Sat May 28, 2016 8:59 am

Dear respected Members,

I have an issue and would like your help please. I asked my accountant to provide me FPS Reports and ha came up with an answer that the software he use does not produce FPS and he told me he already submitted each n everything to hmrc.
He also told me to provide him any format of FPS i need and he will put all the data from his system which is Already been submitted to Hmrc.

Can Anyone please help me where can i find a Sample of FPS so i take it to my accountant and he put all info in it? will any software provide such sample or is anywhere i can find a softcopy of it ? i will appreciate your help.

Have you tried contacting HMRC? FPS can be sent by them if you've lost copies of your own payroll.

The FPS can have slightly different formats. It depends on the software. So I don't think it is a problem if you get it in their format as home office want to see you are reporting to hmrc correctly.
One person on this forum posted the format I will try to find the thread.

Moneysoft format is acceptable. Sample http://www.moneysoft.co.uk/images/guide ... 55x604.png

I highly suggest you download the software for free, enter the data and get the reports from the software itself.

I have used the software and it is easy to use. You enter your employee details, their pay information and tax year and you generate the FPS reports. Cross check the reports with your P32s to make sure the information on the FPS reports are correct.
This is just a hack to get the FPS reports in a format HO wants, no RTI submissions should be done as this was already submitted by your accountant to HMRC.

If you submit your payroll information monthly, then you get an FPS report for each month. Sign and initial them as correct

Hi guys, I got following format for FPS submissions for each employee from accountant from his payroll software. It literally has all information HO needs I think. Will this format work?
The reason I am asking is because it seems ok when you have just one record but when PDF has tens of such records and continues one after another next line, it becomes bit difficult to read. So I am just wondering if HO worker will have patience to go through it or he will just reject it?

It shows all pay details, taxes, start date, employee name, etc etc.

Are we allowed to just simply copy the data from it and manually make document in table format instead?

Hi Guys,
Please I need your opinion if this format will do or if it is ok to copy data from it and manually make document in table format?

HO wants FPS information regarding your employees but there is no format requirements. The best way to present that is via FPS reports sample as given above. The most important thing on FPS is the start dates
