At the end of the tax year, which is 5th April, an End of Tax Year Final Submission Declaration should 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]. The purpose of this notification is just to flag up to HMRC that no more submissions are intended for the tax year. It does not prevent further submissions being made if it turns out that more are needed. However, if the notification is not sent when appropriate, it could cause HMRC to delay making refunds for the year or to send unnecessary reminders.
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
