UK Pay: FPS Amendments 2019/20 does not Use The Payment Date of the Last FPS Process (Doc ID 2744130.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 14, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle HRMS (UK) - Version 12.2 HRMS RUP13 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Problem Statement:
FPS Amendments does not use the Payment date of the last FPS process. It uses Payment Date from Payroll Periods

Where the Payment Date for the last FPS of the year has been overridden then this means that in some cases HMRC will ignore figures in the FPS Amendment due to the Payment date in the FPS Amendments file being earlier than the payment Date in the last FPS.
The HMRC have informed that employers need to override the FPS pay day when the official pay day falls on a non-banking day. The extract below is from the CGW2 regarding recording the official pay day on the FPS when it falls on a non-banking day.
1.8 Operation of PAYE and Class 1 National Insurance contributions when the regular date for payment is a non-banking day.
When a regular payday falls on a non-banking day (Saturday, Sunday or bank holiday) and because of this payment is made on the: * last working day before the regular payday * next working day after the regular payday For PAYE purposes the payment may be treated as having been made on the regular payday.
This is also the date that should be reported on the FPS as the 'payment date' even if the actual payment is made slightly earlier or later.

Steps to Reproduce

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Run FPS Amendments Process 19-20
2. Noticed Payment Date is shown as 27-MAR-2020 instead of 28-MAR-2020 (which is the date from last FPS)
