Step-by-step guide (importing data)


In order for the P11D Organiser system to import and calculate the benefit in kind value for mileage allowance payments in company cars, the system will need to hold the following information :- 

Employee record:
To assign the benefit to, using either NI Number or Payroll Number
Car details:
Using Car Registration Number - The details of the type of car the employee used for the journey (e.g. a Diesel Car with an engine size of 1999cc)
Mileage Allowance:
Matching the employee record to the car record together with the dates of availability, amounts paid per mile, amount of mileage, any related payments (EXPENSES) the employee has received in addition to the mileage claim (if you have set the mileage rates to calculate the payment value) or  the total paid for mileage if no rate has been set and any amounts that the employee has already paid themselves/made good (PRIVATEUSE)

STEP 5 –TARGET FIELD & DATA VALIDATION
The system will display the data in a table. A key ID selection of R_NUMBER will be set as the unique reference for asset/company car:-

GREEN 

records are EXISTING company cars in the system asset database (recognized by their R_NUMBER)

WHITE

records are NEW company cars to be added to the system asset database (not recognized by their R_NUMBER)

PURPLE 

records are NEW employees, there is no existing employee record in the system so the benefit allocation cannot be made (not recognized by NI_NUMBER or PAYROLL number)





Any records removed during the validation process will be saved to a “Import Error File”  
These error files can then be viewed in EXCEL,  corrections can then made to the erroneous records and then re-imported into the system once saved as a CSV file type.

Example - Validation pop-up unrecognized employee record to be removed

Example - Validation pop-up Duplicate car records being removed



STEP 6 – COMMIT DATA CHANGE
The system will now commit the data & create the benefit records. The system will confirm the numbers of records to be added & updated and the total number of records from the source file. - CLICK FINISHNOTE - Backup DATA Folder is recommended as it gives you a restore point prior to committing the changes being made during the import.



STEP 7 – EXIT IMPORT ROUTINE OR DEAL WITH ERRORS 

EXIT IMPORT
If your file contained no errors that need to be re-imported, simply click CANCEL to exit from the import wizard and return to the main P11D Organiser

ERRORS HANDLING 

Any records removed during the validation process will be saved as an “Error file”
These error files can then be viewed and saved in MS EXCEL. Having made the necessary corrections and changes to the invalid records contained in the "error file" it can be used as a new source file to import the corrected records and complete the import for ALL RECORDS (initial load plus the subsequent "fixed" error records)



If your file contained no errors that need to be re-imported, simply click CANCEL to exit from the import wizard and return to the main P11D Organiser system.
