STP new pay event Vs update

tjosephtjoseph Member Posts: 29
Hi,

We successfully uploaded our first pay event for July into GovConnect. We now have a new staff member joining us so i need to process a pay for her. When it comes to uploading in GovConnect is it considered a New Pay event, even though its for the same time period as the previously uploaded event?

Thanks, 
Tam

    Tam I believe if its a new payment date then its a new pay event.

    Hi Linda,  thanks! 

    If it was the same payment date - but say, for example an employee was missed and so you are just uploading there pay - would it still be a new pay event? or are you meant to re-upload with everyone in it?

    That scenario would be a Update Event.

    The advice from Reckon is - new payment date (the physical date you processed it, not what you enter to Reckon) - then new pay event... if the date you paid it is the same date (ie some hours later) - then it would be an update event - where you select just that employee...

    Hi Rav, to clarify do you do an update Event with everyone or just and update Event with the employee that was missed?

    Hi Tam,
    As Linda mentioned below, the update event will be just for that particular employee.

    Hi Rav, 

    Just a quick question on that. When you do an Update event is there a flag that indicates that the submission is an Update and not a normal submission?

    Hi wildernest,
    If you need to do an Update Event, ensure that you select that option prior to exporting your STP file from your Reckon accounting program. There will be a 'flag' so to speak generated within the JSON export file that specifies that its a Update Event which GovConnect will recognise and read. (Please do not make any modifications to the JSON file)

    Also, when you're uploading the file to GovConnect, be sure to select the Update Event option.

    Hi, I have placed 2 pay runs for the same pay date but was meant to update event as I made an error in one of the pay runs.  How can I delete the incorrect payrun with the ato stp.  Both are appearing on the portal.  I only want the correct one there.
