'Salary sacrifice - o' and Salary Sacrifice - s' - how do we process these so they're not a negative number

We've moved to STP 2 and throughtly regret it so far! 

First pay of the year and I've hit issues with salary sacrifice. The way it's been processed in the past means it is a negative number which the STP submission report has a negative number and is rejected by the ATO.

How do we process salary sacrifice now??

  • Ive modified their categorisation  to not reportable to get payroll through and will adjust once Myob fixes the issue which I have to report

      That's probably the only sensible workaround at this stage - good thinking!

      I've since found out that the Myob work around is:
      At the time of processing the payroll, do not submit the STP report (cancel it) then go to the Payroll Reporting and now in the browser to Single Touch Payroll reporting - you'll see the report is 'unsent'. Now send it. The issue is the interface, not the 'negative' data. The ATO should accept the report. I did this with one pay and it has worked, no problem at all.
