Delete a Pay

MYOB will no longer allow a pay to be deleted and can now only be reversed.  This is very difficult and our pays are often changed after payslips are sent out and verified with employees. I dont understand why you cant delete the pay.

MYOB says it is because of STP but STP is updated everytime you post a Payrun. 

Now it is so messy.

    Thank you for your post. If you have recorded a pay but it has not been declared to the ATO through STP (status is not sent) you should be able to delete that pay. If the pay has been declared through STP, you will need to reverse it. This is because the ATO doesn't allow for pay events to be deleted for security reasons, reversing declared pays ensures that your MYOB payroll records match what has been reported to the ATO.
