Good Morning, Can someone please help/ advise on the following - When reporting a pensioner as a leaver via the RTI - FPS process - if the leave date if in a previous period to the one the FPS is being submitted for (FPS is being sent for August 2023 period, but leave date is July 2023), what tax code and basis should be used on the FPS? The Payment after leaving indicator is populated on the FPS - should the FPS show the 0T tax code - Wk1/Mt1 basis? or should the FPS show the last Tax code/ Basis that was used? Any help/ advice will be much appreciated -

Hi Michael Turner,
If the employee has not been made a leaver then you wouldn't use the payment after leaving as this would only be used once an employee has been made a leaver and given form P45.
You would just put the date after the payment date if a further payment is being made.
Thank you.

Thank you for the quick response, With it being a pensioner payroll our leavers are deceased members unfortunately. Noted about the indicator after leaving though - I will link in with my payroll platform provider about this. Can you confirm what Tax code and Basis should be used on the members final RTI submission. Both when submitting in period of leaving and period after leaving. Thanks once again - Kind regards.
