HMRC's Business Tax Dashboard - month 5 information

08 January 2014

HMRC is aware of an ongoing IT issue that, in some cases, is preventing the Business Tax Dashboard from displaying up to date month 5 information for a relatively small number of employers.

For these employers the Employer Payment Summaries (EPS) data submitted for tax month 5 only (6 August 2013 to 5 September 2013) is not appearing on the dashboard.

In these instances, the dashboard will show:

  • an incorrect position for month 5, but
  • the correct figures for tax months 6, 7 and 8, and 'year to date'
  • HMRC's internal systems show the correct position.

HMRC has investigated this matter and it appears that it will only affect employers who submitted EPS between 8 and 13 September 2013.

What happens now

You do not need to contact HMRC if you submitted an EPS between 6 August 2013 and 5 September 2013 and you think that the Business Tax Dashboard shows an incorrect PAYE position for month 5.

HMRC has details of all the cases affected and is working on correcting them. They hope to have made all these corrections, so that the Business Tax Dashboard shows the correct month 5 PAYE position, by mid-January 2014.

HMRC apologise for any inconvenience caused by this issue.
