ATO error code: CMN.ATO.PAYEVNTEMP.000389

Hi, I received this error whilst attempting to file the 2021-2022 EOFY Finalisation Report for 49 employees.

The error relates to one employee who was terminated in July 21. The ATO website states that this may be related to Salary Sacrifice Contribution. 'The derived aggregated gross YTD amount must not be a negative amount'

I have checked the his Summary of Payments report which looks correct.

Can someone please suggest a fix as we need to process a pay run in the new financial year

Many thanks in advance

    I have just processed my first payroll for 2022/2023 and one of the pays has created an issue. 


    The employee has $20 deducted from his pay as a salary sacrifice and this has presented no issues in the past.  The SS has been processed exactly as per the attached notes. 


    When I go to record the pay I receive ATO error saying the report may be rejected and gives the following error code: CMN.ATO.PAYVTERMP.000389

    After spending 1 hour on the phone with a MYOB "Specialist" he basically said he couldn't anything more and would be finishing the call as he had a lot of calls waiting. I asked to be put through to a Manager - guess what - I got cut off!!!

    Anyway does anyone else have this issue?


    Many thanks

      Would you please let me know if there is a solution for this issue? I have made relevant adjustments and sent the End of Year Finalisation Report to the Tax office and received a message advising that the report was 'accepted with errors.' Am I required to send it again once the error is fixed? 

      I am yet to send the most recent pay run as advised by MYOB
