Please note that if you’ve filed the payroll submission to HMRC using FreeAgent, it’s not possible to delete or undo the payroll submission. If you need to make any corrections in the current tax year to an employee’s pay or deductions after filing the payroll, you can edit the relevant payslip, which will submit the correct year-to-date figures to HMRC in your next submission.
1. Navigate to the relevant pay period
Navigate to the ‘My Money’ tab at the top of the screen and select ‘Payroll’ from the drop-down menu.
Select the relevant month from the ‘History’ section.
2. Mark the pay period as unfiled
Before you can make any changes to a pay period which has been marked as filed, or delete the pay period, you need to mark it as unfiled.
To do this, select ‘Mark as unfiled’ in the top-right.
To delete the pay period, select ‘Continue Month [X] Payroll’ in the top-right.
Next, select ‘Delete Month [X] Payroll’. This will delete that month’s payroll, including the generated payslips. Please note that you won’t see the option to delete the pay period if there is an account lock in place or if there is an employee leaving the business who has been marked as hidden.
Select ‘OK’ in the pop-up window to complete the process.
