My first post here, I hope to do everything right.
I run my own private LTD company from a year and something. I am the only employee, director and shareholder.
I had an accountant acting as my agent and doing paperworks for my company and for myself. I wasn't really happy so I left him. I'm still looking to find a new one but in the meantime I need to report the payroll to HMRC.
I successfully registered for the 'PAYE for employer’ service and assuming I’ve done the right thing, using Freeagent, on the 12 Nov I filed the RTI report with HMRC submitting the payroll.
Today I went on HRMC website to check everything was fine and I received two generic messages/notifications:
1. A 'Late filing notice dated 13 Nov.
I submitted my payroll late so I knew that so I guess I can archive it. I know I have to file it before or on the date etc.
2. A 'Non filing notice' dated 14 Nov.
Now this looks weird as on Freeagent it says I successfully filed it and has been received on the 12 Nov. Furthermore on Freeagent the submission looks fine and on my payroll section the last message says 'Month 7 Filed with HMRC. Your RTI report has been successfully filed with HMRC.’.
I started investigating about the notification on my HMRC/PAYE online account and I realised that I did not added any employee:
a) Might this be related to notice 2? Or might be something else?
b) Should I add myself as a employee/director in any case or not?
c) Might be notifications have some delay and it has been sent before I submitted the payroll but I received it only on the 14th?
d) Should I presume HMRC received my Payroll or not? Is there any way, I'm not aware of, to find out if they received it or not?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
