Original Essentials reports don't match STP reports

Hi everyone


Note: The below article is intended for users of the original MYOB Essentials platform. If you are using the newer MYOB Essentials platform do check out this post.


You're reconciling payroll within the original MYOB Essentials platform and the payroll reports don't match the STP reports, where do you begin to look for what's causing those out of balance issues?  


In Essentials, you can start by running the Payroll detail report and the Summary of payments to check the YTD amounts on an employee level. Narrow down which pay items don't match and then check that the correct ATO reporting category has been assigned to those pay items. If you make any changes to ATO reporting categories you will need to process a $0 pay to update STP.


Another thing to check for is pay items that have Non-Taxable selected in error. To fix this you will need to change the Tax field to Taxable and process a $0 pay for affected employees.


Where do you find these reports: 

  • Payroll detail is found in Reports>>Payroll reports
  • Summary of payments is found in the Payroll Reporting Centre>>EOFY finalisation tab>>click on the ... button for the individual employee


If you're still having problems reconciling for EOFY or need further assistance, please feel free to start a new post.
