Employee contract was terminated on 7th March. Employer and employee agreed that employee will receive two months full pay (March and April). Contract will end on 14th May. The employee's last full pay was on 29th April. So therefore the employee had already received two months full pay. Employee's P45 was processed dated 29th April. Should the employee's P45 been processed dated 14th May? If so, can the date be changed?

Hi,

An employer decides what date the employee stops working for them (when they consider the employment to have ended).

If you have submitted the wrong leaving date on RTI submissions and P45 form you are not due to correct this as it may create a duplicate record for the employee. You should keep a supplementary paper record with the correct date if you put the wrong start or leaving date for an employee on their FPS and keep this for the required retention period in line with all payroll records.

Thank you.
