TWO PAYMENT SUMMARY FOR THE SAME EMPLOYEE

Hi,

We've had a couple of employees that's left and have since come back in this financial year. On their return they were allocated a new employee card file in MYOB.

 

Would it be an issue for the ATO if we issue them with 2 payment summary?

Re: TWO PAYMENT SUMMARY FOR THE SAME EMPLOYEE

Hi @ExpoGroup

 

Welcome to the MYOB Community Forum, I hope you find it a great resource

 

  

Generally speaking, each employee should only receive one payment summary at the end of the payroll year. The ATO will also be able to confirm whether or not they will accept two payment summaries for this employee, as will some of our great MYOB Partners, such as @ronatbas

 

 If the employee requires a single payment summary, to create this payment summary in AccountRight you will need to have one employee card with all of the payroll information. This will mean that you will have to delete the pays for one card and re-enter them for the other card.

 

Tip – if these payments have been reconciled in your bank reconciliation you will also need to undo your bank reconciliations and redo them to avoid there being any out of balance in your bank reconciliation.

 

Do let us know how you get on with this



Kind regards,
Neil

It is going to be a matter of timing. The ATO have ruled that someone who has not been on the payroll for three months is to be deemed a new employee. If either of them is under that time you should bring the figures through to one card and only put in one Payment Summary.

Re: TWO PAYMENT SUMMARY FOR THE SAME EMPLOYEE

Hi @ExpoGroup

 

The answer to your question is No - it is not an issue to the ATO. You can send 3 payment summaries for the same employee if you like, as long as the amounts are not duplicated. Many (esp) large organisations provide their staff with multiple payment summaries, for example when they have an accounting system change mid way through the year.

 

As mentioned by @ronatbas and @Neil_M there are ways around it, however these are not required.

 

To highlight the point, the ATO has guidelines that provide the employee a right to demand a payment summary within 14 days of leaving an employer. If you gave the employee a payment summary when they first left, you would have no choice but to provide them a second payment summary at year end.

Re: TWO PAYMENT SUMMARY FOR THE SAME EMPLOYEE

Many thanks for all the advice(s). The multiple payment summary works best for us as it would be too much work and the possibility of making an error in adjusting pays last year.

 

Much appreciated.
