Unsent or rejected reports in the Payroll Reporting Centre?
You’ve got old unsent or rejected reports in the Payroll Reporting Centre>>Reports tab, what do you do? The answer to this is really easy…..nothing!
If you have reports that have been acceptedafter those unsent or rejected reports, then you have already fixed the problem and the YTD amounts have been updated with the ATO. Each time a report is sent to the ATO it is time and date stamped. The ATO use that stamp to determine which report is the most recent, regardless of the pay period dates, and take the YTD amounts from that report.
A rejected report cannot be resent. So you need to fix the error that caused the report to be rejected and when you process the next payrun the YTD amounts will be updated to include the rejected payrun. Just make sure you make any corrections within the ATO deadline.
What happens if you send those unsent reports at the EOFY? Simply put, you’ll mess up your YTD amounts and the YTD verification report. This goes back to the time stamp explained above, you’d be telling the ATO that the YTD amounts in an old report are the most recent.
If you do send an old report, you can fix the YTD amounts by processing a $0 pay with the payment date as the current date. Butthe best thing you can do is leave those old unsent or rejected reports alone.
