I have confirmed a pay run that was wrong - can I edit or delete it?

If you have just confirmed a pay run and then noticed a mistake, you can delete one or more of the payslips by following these steps:

  1. Click on the name of the employee in the options list.
  2. Click on the 'Working Sheet' tab at the top.
  3. Click on the 'Delete Last Payment' button at the bottom of the page.

When you confirmed the pay run, you may have also saved the HMRC payment. If this is the case, you must delete that line from the 'HMRC Payments' page before deleting the payslip(s).

To re-enter the corrected payslips, use the 'Pay Employees' option to start a new pay run. Then, select which employees to include using the 'Include in Payrun' boxes and continue with the pay run in the usual way.

When you create an RTI submission for the new pay run, the system will automatically check for other RTI submissions with the same pay date. The new submission will contain the differences from the figures which were previously reported.
