Summary of changes
Any changes will be updated in this section to help you with your upgrade.
Do I need to upgrade my system?
If you run payroll then YES you must upgrade your Pegasus system. If no payroll is in use then there is no need to upgrade right now.
I am running the upgrade CD and it doesn’t say UPGRADE
Make sure you are on the server where OPII/O3 is installed – then try again. If it still doesn’t say upgrade then do not carry on as the installation will go to the wrong place.
When do I carry out the upgrade?
You should upgrade the software before running the final pay period of the current tax year.
Getting Error 12 after upgrade?
Generally happens when you have not run an Update Data Structures on all companies. Run the UDS now.
Do I need to run a back-up before I upgrade?
Yes it is imperative that you backup your entire Pegasus system before proceeding with the upgrade. This is explained in the installation guide.
Where do I find the documents relating to the upgrade?
This year all the documents are online - go to Pegasus' website to find all the information you will need. Note that the documents will not be available for the payroll versions until the software has been released.
Do I need to run a UDS after the upgrade?
Yes Update Data Structures MUST be run on ALL companies and you MUST tick to update the statutory rates on all companies - but note that you do not need to tick on Force Rebuild of Indexes or Run Unattended.
What are the statutory changes for year end 2017/2018?
A summary of the changes will be shown on this page once they are available.
Do I need to run a week 53?
This will depend on when your employees are to be paid. It is the date of payment to the employee that defines the period number and not the dates they are being paid for. If in doubt then check with your tax office.
Online Filing Manager is not working/installed
This must be downloaded from the Pegasus website and installed on each PC that will be sending details through.
How can I find out more about Auto Enrolment?
Please refer to the Pensions how to guide.
How do I record my monthly Payments made to HMRC?
In Payroll, P32 Processing click Action and then Payment - remember to click the Add New record Icon then enter each month’s Payment.
I have run the year end clear down and there are still YTD balances showing?
This is because you did not tick on the payments and deductions you wanted to clear down. You will need to go back and run Zeroise Balances – within Payroll – EOY/Special Reports and tick the items that you want to clear down.
