STP Finalisation - Missing items

I'm doing STP finalisation and have the Payroll reports matching figures to the GL. However, in the STP finalisation area, the figures for some employees are way off.


For example:


Payroll reports say gross of $80607.45,  STP report says gross of $40203.90.


The weird thing was that when I ran these reports yesterday, it all matched. Today its way off....

Re: STP Finalisation - Missing items

Hi @Adroit


Thank you for your post. I would recommend doing a $0.00 payrun to update the figures in the Payroll reporting centre, once this has been processed are the figures correct ?


If the figures are incorrect I would suggest the following:

In AccountRight there are three main reports that we recommend you use when reconciling payroll:

  • Payroll Activity Summary 
  • Payroll Register Summary
  • YTD verification report


I would check to see if the the Payroll Activity and Payroll Register reports match?


  • If the answer is NO, this generally indicates that a manual adjustment has been made in Pay History in the employee card. If this is the case, you will need to change the Pay History back to what it was and process any changes/adjustments through Process Payroll. Then process a $0 pay to update STP.


  • If the answer is YES, this generally indicates that the issue is being caused by ATO reporting categories that have not been assigned correctly or by payroll categories that have exempted from PAYG Withholding in error. Follow these steps to find and fix the issues:
  1. Run the Payroll Activity Detail report to narrow down which payroll categories are causing the problem.
  2. Check that the correct ATO reporting category has been assigned. Change the ATO reporting category as required.
  3. Check if the payroll category has been ticked exempt from PAYG in error (payroll categories>>open the category>>click on the Exempt button). Untick PAYG Withholding and click Ok.
  4. Once you have made the necessary changes to the payroll category, process a $0 pay to update STP.


Some other really useful reports that can help with EOFY are:

  • Payroll Activity Detail - gives a breakdown of payroll categories per employee
  • Summary of Payments - this is the individual employee version of the YTD verification report, it's similar to the old payment summary
  • Payroll Summary - gives a breakdown of the payroll categories 

Where do you find these reports: 

  • Activity (summary and detail) and Register are found in Reports>>Payroll tab>>Employees
  • YTD verification is found in the Payroll Reporting Centre>>EOFY finalisation tab
  • Summary of payments is found in the Payroll Reporting Centre>>EOFY finalisation tab>>click on the ... button for the individual employee
  • Payroll Summary is found in Reports>>Payroll tab>>Payroll Categories

Please do let me know how you go.
