Failure to complete end of year declaration 13/14

HMRC have now provided a statement about the small number of employers who did not complete the end of year questions and declaration when submitting their final FPS or EPS for 13/14.

HMRC expects all employers to comply with their legal obligations. Where the final indicator has not been completed but all other obligations are met , HMRC will automatically process the return and calculate the final liability (if any). Employers who fail to complete the end of year questions & declaration will miss an opportunity to demonstrate their low risk status in every respect. This failure will feed into the compliance risk assessment processes.

At the moment HMRC do not have an plans to contact employers who fail to complete the final submission indicator. HMRC are continuing to educate employers to make sure that all of their RTI submissions are full and complete and that they meet their legal obligations. They have said they will monitor the situation and consider whether any further action is required.
