How do you run an update event

I have to complete an Update Event but need some instruction on how this is done. I realize I need to check the box that says Update Event for the pay period but where do I actually change the figures for the employees so they are correct? We run Payroll Premier if that makes much difference.

    Hi Lisa,

    An Update Event can be used to correct Employee YTD figures where a change has been made to a prior Employee Pay Event.

    An Update Event can be used to: -

    - Correct misclassifications where, for example an item has been reported as Gross Payments when in fact it should have been reported as an Allowance

    - Where the Employee YTD data in the Payroll System doesn’t match what has been reported to the ATO.

    There's a really good guide here for Single Touch Payroll when using Payroll Premier and also covers off the update events and full file replacements

    Thanks but this doesn't help with my query. At what point and where do I change the incorrect figures??
