ETP Tax Withholding incorrectly deducted from Gross Payment amount

Hi.  I have ten employees who have incorrect Gross Payment amounts due to ETP payments during the year.

 

I have two ETP fields set-up as follows:

1. ETP - Taxable Component (wage category)

2. ETP - Tax Withholding (deduction linked to ETP Tax Withholding ATO)

 

In an employees Summary of Payments the Gross Payment is showing as:

- Gross Payment (from MYOB Activity Summary) less ETP Taxable Component less ETP Tax Withholding 

 

From my understanding the Gross Payment should be:

- Gross Payment (from MYOB Activity Summary) less ETP Taxable Component

 

I was posting on the thread "ETP/Early Termination Payment appearing as double in the Payroll Reporting Centre" and was told to delete and report the payroll for the effected employees.  I have done this but it has not fixed the problem. 

 

Can someone please advise where to go from here? I need to process payroll first thing tomorrow morning.  If this is not sorted can I create a back up (where I can finalise EOPY later) and roll over the payroll year in order to run payroll for the new year???

Re: ETP Tax Withholding incorrectly deducted from Gross Payment amount

Hi @SMPENG 

 

I am having this same problem with ETP tax withheld reducing the gross payments for employees in the STP screens.

I was also asked to create a new thread for this issue (even though it is so closely related to the ETP duplication issue) when I found your post.

 

@Steven_M do you know if there is a solution for this issue?

 

Reposting my initial post from the "ETP/Early Termination Payment appearing as double in the Payroll Reporting Centre" thread:

The reported "total gross payments" are not correct as they are being reduced by the "ETP tax withheld" deduction payroll category from MYOB (even though the ATO Reporting Category for this item in AccountRight is listed as "ETP - Tax Withholding").

Note: all other figures are currently appearing correct (being Total Tax Withheld, Lump Sum - Type D, Allowances, Superannuation and now the ETP values).

 

Below are the figures that should be reported as "total gross payments" through STP for the affected employees.

Are you able to have your team amend the figures to appear this way?

 

Serial Number. 3210

AccountRight Company File ID:  1

 

Employee Number 0018:

 - Gross Wages - $11,335

 

Employee Number 0537:

 - Gross Wages - $81,936

 

This way I can send the payment summaries out the old fashioned way and the figures will agree to what is reported via STP.

 

As with many others, I also need to rollover the payroll year and create a pay run for our employees today.

As such, a prompt response would be most appreciated!!

 

Thanks in advance!!

 

Paul

@Paul_Hooke 

I have managed to fix this, not sure if it is correct way but it worked.

 

You need to ensure that your "ETP - Tax Withheld" Deduction category has the PAYG Withholding exempt field unticked. ie. 

 

  1. Go to the Payroll command centre and click Payroll Categories. The Payroll Category List window appears.
  2. Click the Deductions tab.
  3. open your ETP - Tax Withheld
  4. Click Exempt (top right hand corner)
  5. Ensure that the PAYG Withholding is not ticked

 

Once you have done that, process a $0 pay run for the effected employees.  Once the report has been accepted by the ATO you should see that the ETP - tax is no longer being deducted from the Gross Payment.

 

Hope this helps you.

@SMPENG 

 

Thanks a bunch, your work around appears to have done the trick!!!!

 

Now one of the ETP's is duplicating again.......Sigh.

Hopefully the MYOB team will be able to fix this one up though!!!

 

Much appreciated!!

 

Thanks
