Employment Termination Payments (ETP) for Payroll Reporting

Hi Everyone


Employment Termination Payments (ETP) can be completed in the software in accordance with AccountRight | MYOB Essentials. You do want to ensure that you have added in the relevant ETP Benefit Type when processing the pays. 

Should that pay not have been added with the correct ETP Benefit Type or you started filing pays with the ATO through STP after terminating an employee, and you need to produce an Employment Termination Payment (ETP) STP pay event for the employee, please complete the following steps:


  1. Reinstate the employee's card if they have been made inactive:
    In AccountRight - Card File>>Cards Lists>>Employee>>Enable Show Inactive. Choose the relevant  employee's card >> disable Inactive Card
    In MYOB Essentials - Payroll>>Employees>>Enable Show Inactive. Choose the relevant employee's record>> enable Active Card. Remember to save the employee record after these changes have been made.
  2. Ensure that you have created and assigned the ETP payroll categories to the relevant employee AccountRight | MYOB Essentials.
  3. Delete the already recorded payroll transaction used to process that termination AccountRight | MYOB Essentials.
  4. Re-process that payroll transaction adding in the relevant ETP Benefit Type AccountRight | MYOB Essentials.
  5. Notify the ATO of that employee termination through the Employment Termination window in the Payroll Reporting Centre.
  6. (Optional) Make the employee's card as inactive



If you're using the original version of Essentials these help articles have your instructions:
