At the end of the tax year, which is 5th April, an End of Tax Year Final Submission Declaration needs to be made to HMRC by each employer. This declaration should be made for each company on the system using the Actions menu by selecting RTI-general, then End of Tax Year final submission to HMRC [by EPS].
You will be required to answer the questions that previously appeared on the P35 end of year return, which is no longer used under the RTI system. When the correct responses have been selected and if all the conditions listed on the panel are correct, press the Submit button to send the EPS.
For each Company, the End of Tax Year Final Submission Declaration needs to be made:
- after the last payroll has been processed for the tax year
- after any normal EPS submissions or Inactivity notifications have been made for the year
- before May 20th following the end of the tax year to avoid penalties.
