Payroll users ensure you are on the correct version
At tax year 2014/2015 the final submission to HMRC reversed the employment allowance information sent to HMRC from ‘YES – claiming/claimed’ to ‘NO - not claiming/claimed’. The reversing of the employment allowance has been fixed in the QuickBooks 2016 R6 release due in March. 
 
NOTE: all releases of QuickBooks 2015 and 2016 currently carry the reversing of the employment allowance when a final submission is made. Please do not submit your final submission for payroll year 2015/16 with a version/release lower than QuickBooks 2016 R6. Its advised payroll users should upgrade to QuickBooks 2016 and ensure auto update is turned on ready to auto install release 6 before proceeding with payroll year end 2015’16.
 
To check your version, open QuickBooks and press the F2 button on your keyboard.  The Product Information screen will appear, your release number will be shown at the end of the top line.
 
TIP: QuickBooks 2016 R6 also ensures the declaration questions do not need to be answered this year as they have been removed from R6. Finally always take a back-up of your data before updating your software.
