STP Payroll lodgements don't match the payroll summary, dates are mixed up - wrong amounts for wrong pay week

I'm trying to crosscheck our lodgments against the payroll Activity Summary report and have noticed that the amount of one pay week is listed as being for the previous pay week in the Payroll Reporting Centre List.  In fact almost none of the weekly lodgments match the payroll activity summary reports and consistently the amounts are actually for the following weeks payrun?

Unsure if this is a glitch, the Payroll date is listed but the amount in the Gross and PAYG column (is often but not always) the amount that is for the following week.

Hi @Triggs 

 

Just be aware that the MYOB Payroll Activity report is NOT based on the period you are paying for. It is based on the Payment Date you select when processing payroll.

 

Your Pay period 17/6/2022 - 23/6/2022 had a Payment Date of 24 June 2022. So the details of the payroll transactions dated 24 June 2022 will not show in a Payroll Activity Report for 17/6/2022 - 23/6/2022. It will show on a Payroll Activity Summary report for period 24/6/2022 to 24/6/2022

 

This could explain why your reports appear mis-aligned. You are using the wrong dates in your Payroll Activity Report. This also could be a factor when users report STP reports not agreeing with MYOB reports.

Surely this is a bit problematic and should be rectified?

Hi @Triggs 

 

There are varying opinions about this. The current premise is that for an employee, the income is 'earned' and therefore 'taxed' on the date of payment, not over the days worked.

 

I agree the wording of the Employee reports could be clearer - rather than "For the selected date range, lists the total wages, taxes, deductions, entitlements, and employer expenses for each selected employee", it could state "For the selected date range, lists the total wages, taxes, deductions, entitlements, and employer expenses Paid for each selected employee"
