P30 FOR ROS - Feature

This utility facilitates fast, effective upload of your P30 to ROS. In order to use this facility, your company must be registered to use ROS.

With effect from 1 January 2009, for employers who file their returns and associated tax payments via ROS, the existing time limits have been extended to the 23rd of the month immediately following the income tax month during which the deductions were made.

Where a return and associated payment are not made electronically by the new extended deadlines, the extended time limits will be disregarded so that, for example, any interest imposed for late payment will run from the former due dates and not the extended dates.



A P30 must be submitted within 14 days of the month end. Failure to do so will result in a fine.

To access this utility go to ROS > P30 > P30 by Week Number or P30 by Date  

  • Click ROS displayed at the bottom of the P30 Report

  • Choose the period start date e.g. 01/01/2016.

  • Enter a contact name.
  • Click Prepare File, the file will be saved  to C:\ROS\P30 and will be named the PAYE Number - Year - Period e.g. 1234567A - 2016 - Month 1
