Employer returns: ECS additional processing action: P11D(b) screen - information wrongly captured

Delete information wrongly captured

Once a return has been captured it may become necessary at a later date to delete the return information. For example, where the information has been captured at the wrong employer reference. To do so

  • Select the appropriate return in the Returns box to highlight the entry
  • Select the [Delete] button on the P11D(b) screen

You will be presented with the warning message

‘This will permanently remove the return from the system. Are you sure you want to continue?’ 

Be careful to ensure you delete the appropriate return before selecting the [OK] button.

Note: Where a return is deleted on the same day as it is captured you will be able to capture a further return for the same employer’s reference on that day. However, if the return is deleted at a later date you will be unable to capture a further return for the same employer reference until the following day.

Correction of information wrongly captured

Once a form P11D(b) has been captured it may become necessary at a later date to correct the return information. For example, where the wrong amount has been captured. To do so

  • Select the appropriate return from the Returns box
  • Select the [Amendment] button on the P11D(b) screen to go to the P11D(b) Amendment screen
  • The date defaults to today’s date and cannot be changed
  • Amend the incorrect information in the Amount Payable field
  • Select the [OK] button

ECS automatically calculates the difference between the two amounts and reports it to BROCS.

Note: The amended amount payable to be captured is the total amount of Class 1A for the employer not the difference between the original and the amended amount.

If the amended amount is a Part 4 Adjustment case select the Part 4 Adjustment checkbox to set the indicator.

Where you need to amend incorrect return information for a P11D(b) that was captured on the same day 

  • Select the [Update] button on the P11D(b) screen (PAYE43540)
  • Amend the incorrect information in the Amount Payable field
  • Select the [OK] button

If the amended amount is a Part 4 Adjustment case select the Part 4 Adjustment checkbox to set the indicator.
