I just tried to lodge my payment summaries with the ATO portal.  The lodgement failed with the message 'The file contains an illegal character at end of last report'.  How can I fix this?

    Hi Michelle,

    Are you trying to generate this out of 2016-17 or 2017-18

    The last record would indicate that the last employee in the file, (probably the last in the list of your INB payment summary employee list) has a illegal character in some part of their record such as their name, address etc etc.

    Illegal characters could include a umlout, apostrophe, comma etc etc
