Super correction after reporting to ATO

I processed contractor's Jun 20 super with cheque payments by mistake instead of EFT.  I realised it after sending finalising report to ATO. What is the best way to fix it? Can I delete them and do it again? What happens with ATO reporting if I do that?

Re: Super correction after reporting to ATO

Hello @HDAdmin 


If you made a super payment but selected the wrong account in the Pay From Account field, here’s what you can do:


  • If the payment hasn't been authorised yet, you can simply reverse it. Open the Pay Super transaction then go to Edit > Reverse Pay Superannuation. You'll then need to re-record it with the correct account selected. Click here for full instructions
  • If the payment has been authorised, you'll need to record a journal entry to debit the AccountRight account you nominated when you set up Pay Super, and credit the account which you incorrectly selected in the Pay Superannuation window. 

As for the ATO, the amount you are paying the employee isn't changing, it's just which account the money is coming from. If you reverse the pay, as long as it is reprocessed again the figures shouldn't be affected.

Kind regards,
