    Hi toddandrh,

     

    I appreciate your reaching out. If you have processed pay runs that were recorded under the new ABN and it's not finalized yet, then you will need to do the following steps before you begin the process: make sure to take a backup copy of your file.

     

    MYOB Business: 

    • Save a copy of the payroll activity report for all employees for 3 different periods (make sure to expand the report so it shows the total amount per pay item).
    • Financial YTD (report 1): for record-keeping
    • From the start of FY to the last date, old ABN was used (report 2).
    • The first date, a new ABN, was used for the current date (report 3).
    • You will need to edit the pay history so the year-to-date amounts reflect what was meant to be reported under the old ABN (report 2).
    • Change the ABN back to the old ABN if it is different.
    • Process a $0 pay run/update event for all employees.
    • Finalize employees in PRC
    • Replace the old ABN with a new ABN.
    • Re-register STP with the new ABN.
    • Edit the pay history so the year-to-date amounts reflect what was meant to be reported under the new ABN (report 3).
    • Remove finalization in the PRC.
    • Process a $0 pay run/update event for all employees.

    Please note the date when your company moved under a new ABN and whether any pay runs were done after that date (and if so, which ABN was in the file when you did them). The payroll activity and register reports will no longer match when the ABN is changed mid-year. Therefore, it’s important to get copies of the reports and/or take backups before following the process above.
