STP EOFY finalisation report and overtime payments

My STP finalisation report doesn't include overtime in the gross YTD payments although the STP summary of payments reports are correct and reflect overtime payments.   

In my payroll set-up I coded overtime as the ATO reporting category 'overtime'.  To fix this should I change all overtime pay items to ATO payroll category 'Gross Payments' ?

Re: STP EOFY finalisation report and overtime payments

I have same problem.  On front page the PAYG amounts are correct but the Gross only includes Bas Hourly and Salary amoins  then on Summary Report it lists all overtime and allowances and Base Hourly.  These when added up are the correct figures.  What I want to know is how do I reconcile and do I need to change the payroll categories.  What are the empoyees going to see on th summary report.

I got mine sorted - Go to PAYOLL > Pay Items > change your ATO reporting category to Gross Payments (my overtime rates were set on overtime).  Then run a ZERO payrun for all your employees.  Once the report has been accepted by ATO, check your EOFY Finalisation report.  It should fix the problem.  Good luck.

Re: STP EOFY finalisation report and overtime payments

I had the same issue and fixed it by sending an "update event" to the ATO via STP.

I guess it's a glitch with the STP2 categories but I can't wait for that to be fixed to finalise the year's STP reporting so I'll change the category back next financial year and hope the glitch is fixed by the end of that year!

Re: STP EOFY finalisation report and overtime payments

So did MYOB advise to change all the categories back to "gross wages" for items like, "bonuses, overtime and allowances"??

 

I don't understand what the point of STP2 is then, if our categories are all going to be "gross wages" this is just ridiculous!

You don't need to change the categories.

 

The Gross YTD figures are only going to show amounts for anything that is categorised to Gross Payments (hence being called Gross YTD). As long as all other amounts (Overtime, Bonuses, etc.) are showing on the Verification Report, all amounts will go through correctly to the ATO.

 

I have spoken to MYOB (after being on hold for over an hour and being hung up on once) and this has been confirmed as correct.

Re: STP EOFY finalisation report and overtime payments

Hi @Tammie79 @SJW1 @CathSGM @M_R 

 

As explained by @CamGuru only amounts assigned to the ATO reporting category Gross payments will be included in the Gross payments figure. STP reports YTD amounts according to the ATO reporting category assigned to the payroll categories. This means that in STP Phase 2 amounts assigned a different ATO reporting category will be reported separately, not included in Gross payments.

 

The post, What's different in STP Phase 2 reporting, has detailed information.

 

If you have changed the ATO reporting category to Gross payments for payments that need to be reported separately, you will need to change the reporting category back to the correct Phase 2 reporting category. Then process $0 pays with payment date as 30 June to report those amounts correctly in Phase 2.

 

Please let me know if you need further help.

Cheers,
Tracey

Re: STP EOFY finalisation report and overtime payments

I'm not sure that we need to reverse it for this financial year given that Myob has a deferral for STP2 until 1/1/2023.  The extra work reconciling is not something that most of us can handle at this point, at least for next year we will be prepared for it.
