PAYE EMS Schedule not creating .blk file

Hi there

 

I'm submitting my PAYE schedule, but it keep failing to upload as 'the first filed is invalid'. I've noticed that when I creat the Direct Credit file, instead of creating a .blk file, a .txt file is created. 

Can anyone advise me as to why this happens and how to get it back to nhormal, as this has never happened before.

 

 

Many thanks,

Christine

Hi @Christine14

 

Welcome to the MYOB Community Forum, I hope you find it a wealth of knowledge


Generally the ir-File message "H082:The first field of the top line of the file is invalid" means that the incorrect file is being uploaded to the IRD site. I would recommend going through Step 2: Create the CSV files for electronic file on NZ Payroll Support Note: Filing to the IRD and ensuring that correct files have been created so they can be uploaded to the IRD.

 

You also mentioned a blk vs txt file situation for the direct credit. The direct credit file extension and format is determined by the bank account that is entered into the payroll. As such, do go to Tools>>Options>>Bank & IRD and ensure that the correct bank account is listed in that window.

 

Do let us know how you get on and if you require further assistance.


Kind Regards,
Steven
