    Hi Trisha, 

    Thank you for using Sage City. My condolences for your loss. 

    In this scenario I would refer to HMRC's guidance: 

    "You must make all outstanding payments when an employee dies.

    Put the date they died into the ‘Date of leaving’ field in your next Full Payment Submission (FPS), and deduct tax using their existing tax code. Use category letter X so that you do not deduct National Insurance. Do not produce a P45."

    We have full step by step guidance on what to do in the software when an employee passes away that you can find here >
