Process Overview


Entering rp14 rp14a data using microsoft excel template

System Requirements

This solution Strictly requires

Microsoft Excel version 2003 OR higher.

This solution works only with the Microsoft Office’s Excel tool and none other

spreadsheet software.

Entering RP14 & RP14A data using Microsoft Excel Template

Entering rp14 data using microsoft excel template1

Entering RP14 data using Microsoft Excel Template

  • Use the provided Excel Template to enter the data for RP14 form.

  • Make a copy of provided Excel Template to work with.

  • Open the copy of Template to do the data entry.

  • Complete the data entry fields in the spreadsheet as fully as possible.

  • Only enter data within the shaded cells in the spreadsheet. Anything not entered in the shaded cells will not be exported to XML.

  • When entering Director and Shareholder details on the RP14, the second and subsequent entries are collapsed by default. To enter details for more than one Director or Shareholder, click on the (+) button on the left hand side to expand the relevant area.

Once done with entering all the information,

Save the file, (using File >Save menu item,

or by pressing Ctrl+S buttons).

The file will be saved with .XSL extension.

For example: SampleRP14.xsl

Keep this file for your records. Please note, this is NOT the file that you’ll upload into the RPS system (uploading procedure explained later)

This file will be used to export the data into XML format, (covered in later section)

Entering RP14A data using Microsoft Excel Template


Entering rp14a data using microsoft excel template1

Entering RP14A data using Microsoft Excel Template

  • Entering data for RP14A form in Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet is slightly different from the normal data entry in any other excel spreadsheet.

  • This is due to the fact that the provided Microsoft Excel Template uses a specific feature for exporting data into XML format (covered later).

  • This data entry requires certain specific actions to

    ‘Add a new row’


Entering rp14a data using microsoft excel template2

Entering RP14A data using Microsoft Excel Template

  • To INSERT a new ROW – Point to the very first column of the spreadsheet (which has the row numbers written on it)

  • ‘Right click’ on the number where you want to Insert the new ROW.

  • From the ‘pop up menu’ select ‘Insert’.

  • This will create a new ROW ready for the data entry.

For Example: By default the first row for data entry is No. 13. To add a new row, ‘Right Click’ on the Row number ’14’ and select ‘Insert’ from the popup menu. This will create a new row at line 14 for data entry.


Entering rp14a data using microsoft excel template3

Entering RP14A data using Microsoft Excel Template

  • There are total 37 columns, with column headings from

    1 to 20b.

  • Columns 3a, 13d, 14d, 15d & 16d require specific values which MUST be selected from the dropdown box.

  • Entering any other value than the ones provided in the dropdown box will result in invalid data export and the system will not accept the data.

Entering RP14A data using Microsoft Excel Template

  • Excel 2003 treats the data entry area as a list (shown as a blue border). Make sure all the rows are enclosed within the blue border.

  • NOTE: This blue border may not be visible in Microsoft Excel Version 2007 & 2010.

  • You can enter the Employer Name and the RPS Case Reference (if you know it) on the first line of the list only.

  • When completing the RP14A spreadsheet, enter each employee’s details on a new row.

  • Do not leave Blank or Empty rows in between, or at the beginning and end of the list of rows.

  • Up to 4 ‘Arrears of Pay Periods’ and 3 ‘Holiday Taken But Not Paid Periods’ can be specified per employee. Leave unused fields blank.

  • If you need to specify more than above mentioned Arrears of Pay or Holiday Periods follow the step below.

  • Add another new row for the same employee.

  • In this new row, enter ONLY their Forename, Surname and NINO on each additional line and leaving all the other fields blank except for the AP and HP periods.

  • The file will be saved with .XSL extension.

    For example: SampleRP14A.xsl

  • Keep this file for your records. Please note, this is NOT the file that you’ll upload into the RPS system (uploading procedure explained later)

  • This file will be used to export the data into XML format, (covered in later section)

Exporting data in XML format

  • Microsoft Excel (version 2003 onwards) provides a special feature of exporting the data within the spreadsheet into XML format.

  • Next few slides explain the procedure of exporting the data into XML format.

  • Microsoft office’s look and feel has changed significantly for the versions 2007 and 2010.

  • Therefore there are separate instructions for these particular versions, for exporting the data into XML format.

  • If you are using version 2007 or 2010, then just follow the instructions marked ‘For Excel 2007 users only’ or ‘For Excel 2010 users only’.

  • To export the data in XML format, go the Data menu, point to XML and then click Export.

  • In the Filename box, type a name for the XML file, and click Export. We recommend that you include the name of the employer and either RP14 or RP14A in the filename – e.g. “Acme Trading Company RP14.xml”

  • Once you have exported the XML, you can then upload it to our web site (see later section).

  • The XML Export function is supported by Excel 2010, however it is located in the Developer tab, which is not enabled by default.

  • To install the Developer tab, follow these instructions:

    1. Click the Office button and then choose Options.

    2. The Excel Options dialogue box will be displayed, Click the CustomizeRibbon option.

    3. Now tick the Developer option in the right sidebar and hit OK.

  • That’s it, you will find the Developer tab on the Ribbon.

  • You can now click on the Export button in the Developer tab to export the XML data from your spreadsheet.

  • On the Microsoft Office Button , point to the arrow next to Save As, and then click Other Formats.

  • In the File name box, type a name for the XML data file.

  • In the Save as type list, click XML Data, and then click Save.

  • If you receive an alert stating that saving the file as XML data may result in the loss of features, click Continue.

  • In the large Export XML dialog box, in the File name box, type a name for the XML data file.

  • Click Export.


Error in exporting xml data

Error in exporting XML data

  • If you see this message, then it means that although the file has been saved, the XML data is not correct in some way and will not be accepted by our web site.

  • Click on Details to provide more technical information about the error, correct the data in the spreadsheet and repeat the Export process.

  • Typically, this may happen due to invalid National Insurance Number (NINO) formats, invalid date formats (e.g. entering “March” in a date field rather than 01/03/2011) or entering text when an amount is expected.


Error in exporting xml data1

Error in exporting XML data

  • Sometimes although NINO format looks absolutely correct, but you still get error. Please check for the following possibilities:

    • NINO field is case sensitive and requires all the alphabets to be in upper case.

      Example: ‘AB123456C’is valid

      and

      ‘ab123456c’ is NOT (due to lowercase alphabets)

    • The size of NINO is 9 characters.

      Example: ‘AB123456C’ is valid (9 characters)

      BUT

      ‘AB123456C ‘ is NOT

      (the blank space at the end makes it 10 characters)
