Why am I receiving this error message
You have specified a total contribution basis for salary with a negative amount.
You may have received the error message because you have:
- used the wrong prefix for the amount you specified as the total contribution basis for salary The contribution basis should normally be a positive amount.
Do I have to correct the error
The a-melding has been submitted with information which may be incorrect.
If there is an error, you must correct it by the deadline for submitting the a-melding for the calendar month in which you received the error message.
How to correct the error
- Check the contribution basis for salary you specified for each enterprise, and change any that are wrong. In some cases, a negative contribution basis for salary is correct. See also the explanatory information concerning employer's national insurance contributions.
- Submit the a-melding when you have corrected the error. If you use a payroll system, check with your system supplier if you are not sure how to make corrections in your system.
If you have submitted several a-meldings for the month, it may be a good idea to extract a reconciliation report (A06/A07). This will give you an overview of the amounts that have been reported for the month, both as totals and per income recipient.
