How to ammend an item on previously submitted RTI without changing any figures , therefore no submission required

Previously submitted wages had wrong "service item" entered on wages but QB will not allow you to change it ,I am not changing any figures so won`t make any difference to HMRC . QB suggests deleting and re entering and re submitting 3 months wages (come on) 

Help Please


Hello there, accounts,

Let's get this sorted out so you'll get to select the best option to amend the wages you've submitted.

To correct the service item in QuickBooks, you'll have to delete and recreate the payroll involved. You are able to delete all paycheques until you reach the period that needs to be corrected. Once done, you can re-submit the corrected wages.

On the other hand, if you don't want to delete and recreate the paycheques in QuickBooks, you'll need to visit the HMRC Portal and manually submit the RTI. 

For further assistance and clarifications, I'd recommend contacting HMRC in order to be guided accordingly.

Please let me know if you have follow up questions by leaving a comment below. I'm just around if you need help.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
