Based on my understanding, to correct an error made in a payrun already reported to the ATO, the right way is to adjust it in the next payrun or process a separate payrun adjustment.
We have some queries as follows:
We have processed payrun1 which was incorrect because commissions paid were not taken up.
We subsequently processed payrun2 which reported the base salary again plus commissions paid.
Both were reported to the ATO via STP.
My understanding is that payrun2 would be incorrect - because it reported the base salary again, when the adjustment is only meant for the commissions.
What is the right way to fix this - do we process an adjustment with a negative equivalent amount to the duplicated base salary now?
What should have been the correct way to fix Payrun 1 above?
If we processed a separate adjustment to include just the commissions that should have been paid, that would mean the withholding tax/super would be incorrect, wouldn't it?
Is there any way that we can choose to finalise a payrun without declaration for all future payruns. At the moment, once a payrun is processed, it gets reported to ATO immediately. It would be good to give us a chance to check and review prior to sending to ATO.
Solved! Go to Solution.
In regards to your Payrun that was processed incorrectly, the way to resolve this is delete the Payrun itself from your Transaction Journal and then re process the Pay and send this to the ATO.
This will simply update the Year to Date figures based on what comes through from the software. Because you will have removed the incorrect pay before redoing this pay it will not take into account the the figures originally sent through. The reports however, will still remain in the reporting centre the figures just won't count towards it. Delete and re process is the resolution for this issue.
As for previewing the information before it's sent off, there is a Preview Pay Details report you can run on the same screen that you select to Record your pays. It appears in the middle of the window. This allows you to view the figures before recording.
Thank you for the quick reply.
In this case, we should delete both payrun 1 & payrun2 and then reprocess the whole thing to update the YTD figures to the correct one, is this right?
Is it possible to process all pays for the day without reporting it to ATO first and sending the reports after we have completed all payruns for all employees?
Yes, you'd delete the incorrect Pay runs and then re process the correct figures and send them through.
You are able to cancel at the declaration screen and send through later, however each time you re do a pay run this will create an additional report in the Payroll Reporting Centre that will remain there as 'Not Sent'
I found the Preview Pay Details does not include the YTD figures, is it possible to make it the same as Payroll Advice so I can check the YTD figures against the YTD Payroll Activitiy Summary?
Also is it possible to include Payroll Activity Summary before Record my pays?
Thank you for your valuable feedback in this area!
I will pass on to get that report added to a feature change list, however I cannot guarantee it will be in the next release. If you wish to make add more feedback about it and pass it on further I reccommend you make a post on the AccountRight Ideas Exchange in addition to this post.
