This refers to whether state aid rules apply to your company. For the majority of companies, state aid rules do apply.
But if you do not make or sell goods or services, choose no. For example, if you’re a charity, an amateur sports club or if you employ a care worker.
If state aid rules do apply, you need to select which sectors apply to your business.
The sectors are:
In Road Transport
In Any Other Sector (Industries).
Select all that apply to your business.
See below for HMRC guidance.
Once you have completed this, an EPS - Employment Allowance Claim will be generated for you to file with HMRC to inform them you are eligible. You will be able to find the EPS under HMRC -> RTI Submissions in the side menu. You need to tell HMRC every year if you are eligible. If you run Year End through Shape Payroll, an EPS to claim will be created for the next tax year.
Employers that have an annual pay bill of over 3 million have to pay the apprenticeship levy. If you need to pay this, select Yes and enter how much allowance you receive. Once this is set up, each month the Employer Payment Summary (EPS) will be generated for you to submit to HMRC.
