Re: Process Payrun in wrong category

Hi @Angel 

 

Thanks for your post. The first thing to check is that the payments were actual top up amounts. If your employees earned over the JobKeeper amount each fortnight their pays should be processed as normal and allocated to their normal payroll category, eg base salary. 

 

If they were earning under the JobKeeper amount and you needed to 'top up' their pays to meet the JobKeeper amount, only the top up amount should be allocated to the JOBKEEPER TOP-UP category. For example, the JobKeeper amount was $1500 per fortnight and your employee's earned $1200, you would allocate $1200 to their normal wage category and $300 to JOBKEEPER TOP-UP.

 

If your employees were stood down and did not work the whole payment of $1500 is allocated to JOBKEEPER TOP-UP.

 

So, if you made genuine top up payments you'll need to work out the $ value that should have been allocated to JOBKEEPER TOP-UP. You can then process a $0 pay and reduce the normal wage category by that value and increase the JOBKEEPER TOP-UP category:

Make sure all other amounts and hours are zeroed out and the net pay is $0.00 when processing the $0 pay. 

 

Please let me know if you need further help.

Hi @Angel 

 

You're very welcome. And yes, JOBKEEPER-TOPUP needs to be assigned the ATO reporting category Allowance - Other.

 

When reconciling your payroll reports the Jobkeeper top up amount will not be included in Gross payments in the YTD verification report, it will be reported separately under Allowances. The Gross Payments + Allowances in the YTD verification report should match the Gross payments in your Payroll Activity and Register reports.

 

Please let me know if you need further help.

Cheers,
Tracey

Re: Process Payrun in wrong category

Posting a zero dollar pay prompts a warning to void paycheque.  Is there a way around this?

Hi @Danole5 

 

When you get the warning that it will be a void paycheque click on Yes or Ok. This is just a warning that the net amount is $0.00.

 

Please post again if you need help in the future.

Cheers,
Tracey

Re: Process Payrun in wrong category

Thanks very much Tracey.  Simple solution where STP codes are incorrectly recorded and then amended after final pay done STP year not finalised
