Creating a VOID ($0) Pay to send an updated STP Report

Latest Edit: 30-06-2020


Products: MYOB AccountRight 2020, MYOB Essentials


Hi Everyone,


As there is currently no Update Event in AccountRight or Essentials there is a way you can mimic this by creating a $0 pay for your selected employees so that you can push the latest Year-to-Date data to the ATO before waiting until your next Pay Period.


Processing a VOID Pay in AccountRight

To process a VOID ($0) Paycheque in AccountRight 2020:


  1. Go to: Payroll > Process Payroll
  2. Drop down the menu: Process all employees paid and select Bonus/Commission
  3. Click Next
  4. Select the employee that the adjustment is for.
  5. Click the arrow in the Edit column next to the employee's name. The Pay Employee window appears.
  6. Type a reference in the Cheque number field to show it is an adjustment, for example ADJ.
  7. If you want to provide additional information, enter a description of the adjustment in the Memo field.
  8. Delete all hours and amounts shown in the window.

Once this shows a Net Pay of $0.00, click OK and make sure only that 1 employee is selected. Once you confirmed this is the case, click Record and declare the Pay to send it to the ATO.

To process a VOID ($0) Paycheque in MYOB Essentials:


Go to: Payroll > Enter Pay

Select the employee you're making the adjustment for

Click Start pay run

Delete all hours and amounts from this window so all fields show $0


Once this is done, click Review payslips to check over the details here and finish the pay run to complete this.


Once you declare the pay and send it to the ATO then you're all done, the report is now just waiting to get Approved by the ATO to have the latest figures.
