Payroll file not created

Back in July 2018, there was a payrun completed, but no file created to be able to send to the ATO. 

 

Is it possible to create a file to send to the ATO for a past payroll that has not yet been reported?

Re: Payroll file not created

Hi @Yvonne4 

 

When you report a payrun the YTD amounts are updated with the ATO, so the payrun was reported with the following payrun but it was late.

 

Important to note that while the ATO will not be issuing penalties in the first 12 months of STP, after that there will be penalties if you consistently submit your reports late.

 

Hope this helps

Re: Payroll file not created

Thank you Tracey.  That makes sense.

 

What about the PAYG liability?  The ATO is not recognising this from the file that was not sent.  How do you have the ATO recognise that this is an amount still payable?

 

Thanks for you assistance on this, by the way.  I really appreciate the fact that you've taken time out of your day to respond :-)

 

Kind Regards

Yvonne

Re: Payroll file not created

from the YTD data that you send with each Pay Run. so long as you're up to date, then they know the Gross and PAYG values.

 

if your latest run doesn't include the updated information, then the one after should fix that up as that should have the latest YTD information.

 

you can also do a $0 pay to force an update to the ATO. I remember reading that from: STP Update Event

Re: Payroll file not created

You’re very welcome @Yvonne4 😊 

 

Further to @sholt73  answer re PAYGW, if you’re concerned about what info has been reported you can download a copy of the report in Payroll Reporting Centre. Click on the ‘3 dot button’ and click on download. 

 

The missed PAYG amount would have been included in the next payrun you reported.  Download of copy of your latest report in the Payroll Reporting Centre, add up the PAYG amounts for each employee. Now add up the amounts you have actually paid the ATO, if you lodge your BAS quarterly that will be 3 amounts.  The difference between the YTD total reported to the ATO and the amount you have paid should be the PAYG total for the current quarter.  If it is, you are all good. If not, contact the ATO for the correct procedures to pay the shortfall.

 

A tip that you might find helpful. I reconcile the PAYG liability account just like a bank account. Change the closing statement balance to zero, the date to the date you paid the ATO. Tick all pays for that quarter and the amount paid to the ATO and you should reconcile back to zero. 

 

Hope this helps

Tracey
