I usually paid the employees on 5th of the following month for the tax month. Now I want to change the payday to 7th of the following month for the tax month. For payroll period of 1st Jan to 31st Jan, can I pay on 7th Feb? What do I need to do about FPS for change of payday. I need to submit EPS about the change because payday now falls into another tax period? Thank you.

Hi
HMRC isnt concerned about when money was earned only when it was paid.
So you would just need to ensure there is a FPS for each tax month.
You would also need to be aware that if you do not pay employees for 1 month we would still need a nil FPS or EPS to report no payments.
It may also result in the employees loosing out on 1 month of National Insurance threshold as they are only being paid 11 months of the year.
Thankyou.
Regards.
