View Payroll Submissions In ROS

Most modern payroll software systems provide a notification to confirm when you submit a payroll submission to Revenue and may allow you to view/print a log of this (for Sage Payroll see point 13 in this article Payroll Submission Report – PSR) . However you may want to verify this or check back on historic submissions..

You can do this by viewing your payroll submissions on the ROS website as outlined in the following steps:

  1. Log in to your ROS account in the normal manner.
  2. Go to My Services > Employer Services > View Payroll
  3.  By default, your most recent payroll run submission will be displayed automatically on screen, with recent submissions listed underneath. A ‘Search by’facility is also provided in order to assist in locating a specific payroll submission.
    Please note
    :where a correction has been made to a particular payroll run, both the original submission and the correction submission will be available for viewing
  4.  To view the detailed contents of a payroll submission, simply click the View button at the end of the submission line.


‘Stuck’ Submission – Things To Try or Submit To Sage

When a submission is ‘Stuck’ it usually appears like it is attempting to transmit, but the progress circle  spins endlessly.

Before investigating – log on to the Customers ROS account, and check if the submission is present or not. This will determine what route the investigation needs to take.

Here is a list of things to try / consider if a submission is ‘stuck’ and will not complete – easiest ones first:
If you discover a new solution to a stuck rpn/submission – please add it to this list.

Things To Try:

  1. Software Version Number – is it the latest version number – does the Payroll need an update?
  2. Ensure/Check the Anti-Virus is off/excluded and is not conflicting with the submission
  3. Make sure the cert can be used to log into ROS on the ROS website.
  4. Make sure there is a Tax Reg number in the company settings.
  5. Check in Regional Settings on the PC that the Date Format is DD/MM/YYYY
  6. Re-Set the Calendar (Company/Payroll \ Calendar \New Calendar)
  7. If Re-Setting the Calendar works – then go ahead and replace the PAYCAL.DBF and PAYCAL.CDX files in the system with blank ones from an empty system. Copy out the original ones first, then paste in the empty ones – After that set the Calendar again. Company/Payroll \ Calendar \New Calendar.
  8. Re-Start the PC
  9. Check if there are any Windows Updates Pending on the PC. Some stuck submissions have been solved by running the updates & re-starting the PC. You may need IT assistance for this.

Further Investigation:

If the problem is not local, then it could be that the submission is stuck at sage’s RTX server and needs to be pushed through to ROS.  You can further investigate this by using the ‘Fiddler’ Web Debugger tool to interrogate the web activity. Click here for instructions on how to do this.
