I have just done a dummy check on the payment summaries
All apart from one agree with th Payment summaries verification
I have one where the figures on the Verification is reporting $1795.02 difference between the Payroll activity in the wages column.
So in the Wages Verification I have $32948.02 and in the Payment summary I have $31153
I can't seem to find where the difference is coming from.
Everything else is correct ie: Total tax withheld/reportable Employment Super Contribution
Solved! Go to Solution.
Two common problems are
Short on employees listed - are you able to match the number of people on your Payroll Activity Summary to the number of people ticked in one of the early screens of the Prepare Payment Summary screens?
Allowances - Have you picked up all allowances? If you look at the Payroll categories reports you will find that every category used is listed.
I'll have to do some revision myself with year end looming.
I have looked at this over and over and can't work out how to fix
The problem seems to be in January where things go wrong
In january it says that Total wages $8668.98 but when I checked all his pay advices the amount for the month was $10,463.06.
It was this much because he left and was paid out his LSL and A/Leave
I just can't work out how to fix the problem so that the Payment summaries verification matches
So the payment Summary verification says gross payments $31,153 but his actual gross payments on the payroll activity is $35,848.02
I am totally stuck on this
Did you use Unused AL and Unused LSL for the final pay and were these ticked on the page where you have to determine which figures to report. The ATO expect that these are reported at lump sum A(?) but it is commonly reported under normal earnings/PAYG.
Your January figures are strange but don't explain the total difference. Can you call up the Payroll Categories Report for
July to December
and compare each of them to the Payroll Activity Summary for the same period?
BTW you do need to add back the RESC figure as it only appears in that area.
I have fixed, took me ages but I went through each month and it still came back to January.
I had a closer look and the figures in Holiday pay that he was paid were not showing in the Payroll register detail and also the figures in the Unused holiday pay were wrong.
Once I manually changed the Payroll verification all matches with what he has been paid
Many thanks for your help.
