How do I make a payment to a leaver?

When an employee is made a leaver on the payroll,  HMRC will be notified when the  RTI data is submitted each pay period. You need to give the employee a P45 form for their records, which shows the total pay and tax  in the employment  tax year.
Within Cintra iQ, you can enter the relevant payments for the employee via the employee's Payroll Period Input form. The employee is automatically made a leaver again on the payroll as part of the process of moving to the next payroll period.


If a Late Payment to Leaver is made to an employee who has left six or more years ago, then the date of leaving will be shown as the date of payment within the RTI submission as per HMRC guidance.

    Go to Cintra iQ: Employment Record> Payroll Period Input form.

To make a late payment

      • No P45 has been sent, you may make payments in the current period or as a correction to the leaving period. 
      • P45 has been sent. You may make payments in the current period, NOT as a correction to the leaving period. Payments made will be taxed as BR [pre date] or 0T [post date]. 
      • Click the OK button. The Late Payment to Leaver button becomes inactive.
