 1 Introduction
1.1 The 2011-12 Quality Standard and Business Validation Specification (QSBVS) sets out the rules for sending 2011-12 Employers Annual Return online by the Internet
    Channel. The requirement to meet a quality standard is in Regulation 209 Income Tax (PAYE) Regulations 2003 (SI2003/2682) and publication of the standard for each year
    is by Board’s Direction.
    The corresponding rules for sending 2011-12 Employers Annual Return online by the Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) Channel are documented in the Message
    Implementation Guidelines (MIG) for Employer's Annual Return 2011-12.

     The differences between this year & last are listed in Appendix A7 Changes from last year.

     Returns that do not meet the Quality Standard and Business Validation Specification, will be rejected and treated as not having been made. There is a penalty of up to £3000
     a year for an employer who does not file their annual return online when required. This penalty is in addition to the existing late filing penalty.

     Software developers must read this document alongside the technical specifications for PAYE Online for Employers – Internet (and for EDI) at:-

 HMRC                                      Quality Standard and Business Validation Specification                                                      Introduction



Whenever an attempt is made to electronically file a tax form, a message should be returned to confirm the result of that attempt. This may take the form of either a success
message, which confirms successful filing of that form, or a number of error messages. Error messages have two functions: to identify errors within the form itself and
establish corrective action to be taken, and secondly to recognise errors within the connection, system or elsewhere which have prevented the form from reaching the
validation stage.
The response message proposed in this document is intended to allow messages to be easily processed by Third Party software, while maintaining a degree of flexibility for
changes to message handling in the future.
This document is applicable to both the test and the live service.
There are examples of the Internet response messages in the Appendix at the back of this document.

     HMRC                                       Quality Standard and Business Validation Specification                                                    Introduction



 2 Validation rules for online filing of Employers Annual Returns
2.1 Table description
    The section explains the meaning of the columns in the Rules for 2011-12
    BVR
    This is the number of the field. Rules that were previously suffixed with a letter, e.g. 28a & 28b are now represented as 28.1 & 28.2 respectively.
    BVR '0' has generic rules to cover any schema errors not explicitly documented against each field.
    Rule
    This is the number of rule for that field. To refer to a rule for a field the convention used is BVR#Rule; e.g. 120#1 or 28.1#5.
    Field
    This is the name of the field.
    Location
    This the location information supplied with errors for the field
    Submission Type
    This denotes the submission type or types the rule relates to.
    Return Type
    This denotes the return type or types the rule relates to. Org = Original. Amd = Amended. Both = Either Original or Amended.
    Min Len
    This denotes the minimum length of the field. These will not be populated when there is a list of valid enumerations.
    Max Len
    This denotes the maximum length of the field. These will not be populated when there is a list of valid enumerations.




     63bd20f2-bcad-4ff8-a964-85ffca1ddab7.xls                                       Page 3 of 53                                                               5/15/2012
     HMRC                                       Quality Standard and Business Validation Specification                                                      Introduction



    Min Occ
    This denotes the minimum number of occurrences of the field. A value of zero means the field is optional at the schema level whereas a value of 1 means the field is
    mandatory at the schema level. Optional information should be supplied if the employer has it and this will help speed up processing by HMRC.
    Max Occ
    This denotes the maximum number of occurrences of the field. A value of UB (unbounded) means there is no upper limit.
    MOC
    M = Mandatory. O = Optional. C = Conditionally Mandatory; i.e. it is optional in the schema but the cross-field validation may enforce completion.
    Stage
    For Part submissions, stage 2 validation is applied to the submission as it is received whereas stage 3 validation is only applied when all the submissions for the return have
    been received.
    For Complete submissions both stages are applied at the same time.
    Validation
    This describes the rule applied.
    Response Text
    This is the response text.
    Code
    This is the error code.
2.2 Terminology
    The list below explains the terminology used in the Rules from April 2011-12 table.




     63bd20f2-bcad-4ff8-a964-85ffca1ddab7.xls                                       Page 4 of 53                                                                     5/15/2012
 HMRC                                       Quality Standard and Business Validation Specification                                                         Introduction



Designated character set
Four of these are defined in Appendix 5. For full details please refer to the XML Schema for PAYE Online for Employers.
These Specifications can be found at www.hmrc.gov.uk/ebu/softw_index.htm
Where there is a limited character set for a field the details are shown in the Rules for 2011-12 table.

In the appropriate format
The Internet service has standards for the format of the incoming data. For full details please refer to the XML Schema for PAYE Online for Employers.
These Specifications can be found at www.hmrc.gov.uk/ebu/softw_index.htm

Valid calendar date
A valid calendar date contains a day, a month, a century and a year within the Gregorian calendar (dates from 1751).
The format of the date to be used within the submission will be detailed in the schema specifications.
Aggregation cases
Where an employee has more than one job with the same employer or with different employers who are ‘Trading in Association’ the earnings from two or more employment’s
are treated as being from a single employment. In these cases some validation rules will not apply. Validation rules that do not apply in aggregation cases have been noted
in bold text in the relevant fields. These rules are also not applied in cases where an annual earnings period has been used and there are two or more lines of contributions
involved.
Monetary amounts
All monetary amounts are submitted as ‘pounds and pence’ (two pence digits). Where the amount must have the ‘pence’ figure as zero i.e. ‘whole pounds’, this will be
indicated within the business rules. The field length will indicate the maximum digits allowed in the field (including pence). The field length does not include a decimal point, a
minus sign or a currency indicator e.g. field length 5 – the maximum positive amount allowed in the field is £999.99. The format for submission is detailed in the XML
schema.

Submission in "parts"
Where the P14s and P35 and P14s are sent as separate submissions, the cross form validations are only performed once all the "parts" have been received by HMRC. The
business rules affected by this type of cross form validation are indicated by a value of 3 in the stage column.
Employers will only get an acceptance or rejection message for the P35Part once this cross form validation has happened.
Where a Return sent in parts fails the Quality Standard, HMRC will reject the P35 but store the P14s.
A "complete" return, where the P35 and P14s are sent as one submission, will have the cross field validation performed at the time of submission.

  HMRC                                     Quality Standard and Business Validation Specification                                                   Introduction



3 Amendments to Original Returns
 An amended return can be sent as either a “complete” submission or as a submission in “parts”. The only acceptable combinations of forms which can be part of an
 Amended return are:
 • P35 with no related P14’s
 • P35 with related P14’s.

 P14 amendments must be sent with a P35 amendment, either together or in separate parts. You can do this using PAYE Online for Employers – Internet or EDI, or a
 combination of both. More information on filing your return in parts can be found at
  http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/payeonline/p14-p35-separately.htm
 The Amended returns must not include figures already filed and must only reflect additional information whether this is a positive or negative amount.
 An amended return will not be processed unless an original return for that year has been accepted by HMRC.

 Note: amended returns should not be used to report changes to personal details for employees.
 • Within an amended return the monetary fields on the P35 and P14 can have either positive or negative values.
 • P35 accounting fields must equate to the values recorded on the P14s accompanying the Amended Return.

4 P14 “Gross Pay” or “Pay in this Employment”
 The gross pay for the P14 is the gross pay for Tax purposes. This is BVR39 "Pay in this employment".
 Gross pay for tax purposes includes such things as overtime, bonus, commission, Statutory Sick Pay (SSP), Statutory Maternity Pay (SMP), Ordinary Statutory Paternity Pay
 (OSPP), Additional Statutory Paternity Pay (ASPP) and Statutory Adoption Pay (SAP) minus any authorised deductions under the ‘net pay arrangements’ for superannuation
 contributions or payroll giving schemes. For further details see the Employer Further Guide to PAYE and NICs, CWG2, under ‘gross pay’.

   Note: The combinations listed above are a subset of those possible according to the rules issued by the Cabinet Office at: -
   http://www.cabinetoffice.gov.uk/govtalk/schemasstandards/e-gif/datastandards/identifiers/national_insurance_number.aspx

   The wider rules are:-
   1. Must be 9 characters.
   2. First 2 characters must be alpha.
   3. Next 6 characters must be numeric.
   4. Final character can be A, B, C, D or space.
   5. First character must not be D,F,I,Q,U or V
   6. Second characters must not be D, F, I, O, Q, U or V.
   7. First 2 characters must not be combinations of GB, NK, TN or ZZ (the term combinations covers both GB and BG etc.)
   The reason for this difference is that Cabinet Office list caters for existing obsolete values whereas the PAYE EoY subset only covers the valid combinations employees
   should have.

A2 Modulus 19 Check

   This Appendix details the calculation known as the Modulus 19 Check. This check is used to confirm the validity of the ECON/SCON provided by the Employer.
   It cannot identify if any of the digits of the reference number provided are incorrect therefore it should not be used to amend the reference number in an attempt to provide the correct SCON/ECON.
   The calculation used to confirm the validity of the supplied SCON/ECON is as follows: -

   To confirm the validity of SCON S1301234T, take the supplied digits of the reference number and multiply as follows -
        1              x           8             =              8
        3              x           7             =             21
        0              x           6             =              0

                                               Total           59
   Calculate the Remainder as follows: (Total + Fixed value) / 19 = whole number of 19s with a remainder of 0 to 18.

   Note:        FIXED VALUE FOR A SCON = 51
                FIXED VALUE FOR AN ECON = 37

   In this case 59 + 51 = 110 and 19 goes into that 5 times with a remainder of 15.
   Look up the final character (the check letter) from the table below: -

A4 Aggregation of Earnings

   Annual earnings period used and more than one contribution line. Supplement to End of Year Business Rules.
   This supplement contains additional business rules so that the validations are correctly applied in cases involving aggregation of earnings and where an annual earnings period has been used and there is more than one contribution line involved.

          IF
                  There are two or more lines of Contributions
          AND
                  Within any 2 or more lines there is a combination of any of the following categories: -
                           A + B, D, E, F, G, H, K, N, O, R or T
                           D + B, E, G, H, K, N, O, R or T
                           E + B, F, G, H, K, N, O, R or T
                           F + B, D, G, H, K, N, O, R or T
                           G + B, K, N, R or T
                           J + Q, L, S or V
                           Q + L, S or V
                           L + S or V

                           O + B, G, K or T
                           R + B, H, N or T
                           S+V
                           T+B
          AND
                  The matching contributions of NI categories above also have a pattern matching any of the examples in the table below on at least two of the Contribution Lines
          THEN
                  The P14s should be classed as an aggregated earnings case.

   The table below is populated with ‘Y’ when the associated monetary value in the earnings band is zero.
   Note: The Earnings above the UAP up to and including the UEL will not affect the decision.
   Although the table shows 10 patterns for ‘a contribution’ vs. ‘another’, there are 20 in total as the match can be made in reverse (‘another contribution’ vs. 'a contribution’.)

                    when the employee has had an additional pay period within the tax year.)". This makes the second rule redundant.
                    BVR104 & BVR 105 Q4 - Employees out of UK parts 1 & 2: There is now 1 rule against BVR104 & 3 against BVR105.
