Sending your final submission notification to HMRC;
Xero can streamline final payroll reporting requirements for the year by automatically indicating on the EPS that they will be sending on the 12th April that is he final report for the 2015/2196 payroll year.

Update employee payroll records;
Before running the first pay in the new year you should make sure that you update your employee payroll records with any changes to tax codes, benefits, deductions or reimbursements. That way you avoid having any ongoing problems which may need correcting later in the future.
