How to review and edit payslips

This article shows you how to view and correct payslips after running payroll.

Reviewing payslips

Once you’ve run each payroll, you can review the payslips that were issued by selecting the month from the drop-down menu.


This will take you to a summary of all the payslips that were issued that month. To see a particular employee’s payslip for that month, choose ‘View Payslip’ next to the employee’s name.


To view a summary of the employee’s payslips for the entire tax year, select the employee’s name from the table.


You can also access this summary page directly by selecting the employee’s name from the drop-down menu.


Correcting mistakes

If you have level 8 access to FreeAgent and you find that your company has made a mistake in a payroll submission within the current tax year, you can edit the payslip(s) in question by following these steps:

1. View the payslip you need to correct

Navigate to ‘My Money’ and ‘Payroll’. Select the appropriate payroll month from the list in the ‘Payroll’ area.

Next, choose the ‘View payslip’ button that appears alongside the details of the employee whose payslip you need to edit. To edit more than one payslip, please follow this process separately for each employee.


From the view of the employee’s payslip, you will see an ‘Edit payslip’ button.


Please note that the ‘Edit payslip’ feature won’t be available if you are trying to correct any of the following:

  • a month 12 payslip
  • a historical payslip of an employee who has a leaving date entered into their payroll profile
  • a payslip for a historical tax year

If you need to correct any of these types of payslip, please email for assistance.

2. Edit the payslip

Select the ‘Edit payslip’ button and then correct the required fields on the payslip. Select ‘Save changes’ when you’ve finished.


The employee’s payslip for that month will automatically be updated on the screen. You can select the ‘Save as PDF’ button to save and then share the updated payslip with the employee.

Correcting a payslip in this way will update the company’s year-to-date figures in FreeAgent immediately, but please note that HMRC won’t receive the updated information until the following month’s payroll submission.
