Debt and return pursuit: PAYE RTI: IT systems: EBS (RTI View)

The user role EBS RTI VIEW was introduced from 6 April 2012. This role is restricted to only give access to view the View Employer RTI Submissions function. There is no access to any other Employer Business Service (EBS) functionality under this user role.

View Employer RTI Submissions

You can use EBS function View Employer RTI Submissions to look at a summary of Full Payment Submission (FPS), Employer Payment Summary (EPS) and Earlier Year Update (EYU) submissions that an employer has made by the RTI Service. You can retrieve this submission data by using either the:

  • date the submission was received by the RTI Service
  • pay period that the RTI submission relates to.

You will only be able to view submissions using the View Employer RTI Submissions where an employer has an RTI Joining date and submitted RTI submissions.

Viewing submissions by dates of receipt

You can search on EBS for RTI returns received between particular dates from the RTI Submission screen by entering the employer reference, selecting the Received radio button and entering the start and end date of the relevant periods. For example, by selecting received dates ‘Between’ 09-05-2014 ‘And’ 25-07-2014, EBS will display a list of all FPS, EPS and EYU submissions received by the RTI Service between the dates selected.

If you select an EPS submission and then the [View Submission] button, this will display details of the EPS you have selected. If the EPS is the final EPS for the year (2013-14 and 2014-15 only) you will also be able to view the Questions and Declaration screen - this is the equivalent to the P35 declaration.

Where you select to view an FPS submission you will be taken to the View Employer FPS screen. This screen will show the tax months that are included on the FPS you are viewing. If the FPS is the final FPS for the year (2013-14 and 2014-15 only) you will also be able to view the Questions and Declaration screen.

Note: EBS RTI View will tell you when the return was submitted but will not necessarily show the same figures as ETMP due to the way the data is extracted by each system. You should use the figures on ETMP.

Viewing submissions by Pay Period

On the View Employers RTI Submission screen you will need to enter the employer reference, select the For Pay Period radio button and enter the tax year you require and a ‘From Tax Month:’ and a ‘To:’ tax month.

For example, selecting the pay period ‘Tax Year’ 2014, ‘From Tax Month:’ 02 ‘To:’ 04 will display a summary of all FPS and EPS returns relating to the pay period 6 May 2014 to 5 July 2014. The screen will also display the number of FPS returns that are included in the FPS Summary along with the dates that they were received by the RTI Service.

If you select one of the FPS submissions and then select the [View Submission] button you will be able to view that FPS return on the View Employer FPS screen. This screen will show the tax months that are included on the FPS you are viewing. Where the FPS contains details for more than one pay tax month you can view the individual months’ values by selecting the required tax month. If the FPS is the final FPS for the year you will also be able to view the Questions and Declaration screen - this is the equivalent to the P35 declaration.

Note: EBS RTI View will tell you when the return was submitted but will not necessarily show the same figures as ETMP due to the way the data is extracted by each system. You should use the figures on ETMP.
