  • PaymentBasisCode Error: Employment Basis Code is invalid
    (ATO error code: CMN.ATO.PAYEVNTEMP.000272)

Re: Paying super for a contractor STP Phase 2

Hi @angela231 


Thanks for your post.


This error message is a warning message, prompting you to fix the error or the pay event may be rejected by ATO via STP. However, if the employment basis is set to 'Other - Not Reportable' it means you are not reporting this employee's payments to ATO. Therefore, please process pay runs for normal employees and for this type of contractors separately. And when recording the pay for the contractors, when the warning message pops up, you can choose to record it anyways. 


I do suggest confirming with your accountant or with ATO regarding the best set up and reporting requirements.


Please let me know if you need further assistance.
