To enter your HMRC Settings into Director Pays you need to go to Payroll Settings > Business Settings > HMRC Settings. You will then see the below page:
You will need to fill in your Employer PAYE reference number, a unique reference number consisting of 2 parts and your Accounts Office Reference a unique, 13 character code which will be shown on the letter you received from HMRC when you first registered as an employer.
If you are eligible for small employers relief you need to select yes. If you’re a new employer or unsure whether you qualify for small employer’s relief, you should check this with HMRC.
If you will be claiming the Employment Allowance you should select yes. If you are unsure if you can claim the employment allowance you should check this with the HMRC.
If you are required to pay the apprenticeship levy you will need to select the yes option here.
On this page you have the option of enabling RTI for the business. If you choose to enable RTI then you will need to enter your HMRC user Id and your HMRC password:
"Would you like to make RTI submissions in test mode for this business?": If you choose yes on the HRMC Settings page, pay runs can be "lodged" but we will receive a generic notification from HMRC with a Non filing notice. If you send your FPS in test mode it will not be a successful submission.
This functionality is provided by HMRC to validate submissions against their live services without the submissions filtering through to the rest of their back end systems. Essentially it can be used to make sure HMRC is happy with the details you've added into the HMRC Settings screen in the system.
NB. When the Test mode setting is enabled, HMRC will only validate the payload, they will not process it (ie. a pay run lodged in Test Mode will only be validated by HMRC and not processed through their systems).
You should change the Test mode setting to 'No' in order to lodge your pay run/s with HMRC.
If you have registered with the Government gateway where users can access online government services securely and easily over the Internet you need to select yes and fill in the details.
You can choose to submit your Employer Payment Summary EPS monthly on a date you select by choosing the date from the drop down field. You can choose not to submit it automatically in this field too.
In the next few fields you need to enter the account name and numbers and save.
