Hi Emma,
The short answer is, you can't. Any submissions in GovConnect other than in draft status cannot be deleted for any reason. We're required to retain them.

If you've made an error you have a couple of options in the form of an 'Update Event' or 'Full File Replacement'.
Check below for more info on what these are and when to use them -

Update Event

Full File Replacement

What if it's just a correction?
I have submitted with "success" previous pay runs, but needed to amend a couple. I resubmitted via STP and now there are duplicate dates.
Am I to assume the newer ones are just going to over-ride the older ones?
