Payroll Reversal

I processed a pay for a staff. STP was lodged ABA file was created through Prepare electronic payments section but later, we found that pay processed was wrong and needed to delete it.  Since STP doesn't allow it to be deleted I reversed it as mentioned.


Now the transaction is showing in Prepare electronic payments section where I have two transactions, one is the original transaction and another is the reversal transaction.


How do I delete that transaction from Prepare Electronic payment tab? Both original and reversal as I created a new pay run for staff and lodged STP.

Re: Payroll Reversal

Hi @SDahal 


Thanks for your post. In the Prepare Electronic Payments window:


  1. select the original and reversal transactions
  2. click on Bank File
  3. the Information window "Transaction will be recorded" opens, click OK
  4. the Save As window opens, click Cancel

Step 3 records the AccountRight transaction which removes those transactions from the Prepare electronic payments window. As they are for the same amount they clear each other out without affecting the bank account.


Step 4 stops the ABA file from being saved, as you've already paid the wages you don't need the ABA file so don't need to save it.


Please let me know if you need further help.
