How to reverse a reverse super payment

Hi There

I incorrectly reversed a super payment and want to delete the reversal. The 'delete' and 'reverse' options in the edit tab are greyed out so I can't do that.

I've gone into my security preferences and the 'reverse only' option is not ticked.

I don't think I can just do a journal entry because the reversal included all the individual employees super figures for the quarter so I think that would affect something in STP.

Any advice would be appreciated. :)

  • Hi KatharineM 

     

    Thanks for your post. You're correct that re-entering the original transaction will offset the reversal, just make sure you re-enter it exactly as was. However, how you handle incorrect reversals depends on the transaction. If it's a Pay Super transaction this help article has detailed instructions: Reversing and reprocessing super payments

     

    For transactions like Spend/Receive Money you can delete the reversal as long as the security and users preferences allow it. If the reversal has been included in a prepare bank deposit or electronic payment you need to delete those transactions first. This help article, Deleting a transaction, has detailed information you may find useful.

     

    Please let me know if you need further help.

  • I realised I can just redo the original transaction.

     

    Previously I had reversed a transaction twice with super. I'd still like some advice on how to delete an incorrect reversal.

      Hi Tracey,

      Thank you this is helpful for the first part of my question.

      Are you able to explain how I can delete an incorrect reversal? In a situtation where the super was processed and then reversed, we realised the transaction which was reversed was correct. I then tried to reverse the reversal, but that just double reversed the transaction. Can you delete a reversal?

      Thanks

        Hi KatharineM 

         

        As explained it depends on what type of transaction it is. For example, you can delete the reversal of a Pay Liability transaction but you can't delete the reversal of a Pay Super transaction. For Pay Super transactions you would need to reprocess the transaction through Pay Liabilities as per the linked help article.

         

        If you need further help please let me know the type of transaction you reversed and I'll be happy to help.
