    Hi MFAA,


    Thank you for your post.


    In this case, if a salary sacrifice is set up correctly and assigned to the accurate ATO reporting category, this should be deducted from the gross wages. Kindly refer to this Help article, Salary sacrificing, which has detailed information on how to set up salary sacrifice. If it is set up correctly, could you please provide us with a screenshot of your salary sacrifice set up, so I can further check?


    If you wish to amend your EOFY through the STP reporting center, ensure that it is from the previous and current payroll years. If it is prior to the previous payroll year, then it is recommended to manually lodge with the ATO. End-of-year finalization with Single Touch payroll reporting, has detailed instructions on how to undo your finalization.


    Please let me know if you require any further assistance with this. I'm here to help.
