|Error message: "This submission cannot be accepted as an Employer Alignment Submission is required for this Employer Reference".
What to Do Next: A Full Payment Submission cannot be accepted because an Employer Alignment Submission (EAS) is expected for Employer Reference or PAYE reference in the submission made by you. Any company having more than 250 employees, have to e-File an EAS first to join RTI. In case you try to e-File the FPS directly, you will receive this error message. Further HMRC advise that you must wait 24 hours after submitting your EAS, to proceed with FPS.
