There are a number of reporting requirements to be submitted to HMRC in order to finalise and close the payroll for a tax year that has finished.
As part of this process employees must receive a summary of their gross earnings and PAYE tax and National Insurance (NI). This is reported on a form, P60.
Employees must receive the from P60 no later than 31 May after the relevant tax year.
Send your final Full Payment Submission (FPS) on or before your employees’ last payday of the tax year (which ends on 5 April).
If you run more than one payroll under the same Pay As You Earn (PAYE) reference (e.g. for employees you pay weekly and monthly), include the end-of-year information in your last report.
You will need to send extra forms if you claimed a National Insurance holiday.
For each employee working for you on 6 April, you’ll need to maintain a payroll record. You should include in your payroll:

You must give your employees a P60 by 31 May.
You must report expenses and benefits to HMRC by 6 July. This can be done by submitting hard copy documents, or submitting the details directly onto the HMRC website via the Employer PAYE gateway log-in.
Employers are liable for NIC class IA as the total value of employee benefits summarised on an employee’s declaration form P11D(b). HMRC require employees to report any benefits in kind of payment / reimbursement of certain expenses on a form P11D.
Pay any Class 1A National Insurance due on the taxable expenses and benefits you’ve provided. Your payment must be received by 22 July (or 19 July if you’re paying by post).
