4492. No Payment (Nil Return) Return?
 
If you have made no payment to any monthly, weekly or any other pay frequency employees during the tax month/quarter then you must send a "No Payment Due" EPS to HMRC. The deadline for this is the 19th of the month following the end of the tax month for that pay period.

Note: You cannot report 'no payments to employees' for the current tax month. If you need to do this you must wait until the tax month has ended. For instance, you cannot submit a 'Nil Payment' EPS for the period 6 December to 5 January until 5 January.
