Adjusting a double-up payment through STP:

I recently uploaded the STP for a pay period but didn't click Full File Replacement. This led to a double up entry for the same pay period. 2 payroll runs for the same period of time both with different lodgement acknowledgements. I don't know if I have actually succeed in correcting this, but to attempt to correct this problem, I deleted the payroll for this period, processed the single touch payroll (showing nil balances), selected full file replacement for one of the entries. Only time will tell if I have succeeded. Has anyone else tried this? and has it been successful?

    Each time you lodge an STP submission it updates YTD totals, rather than just that pay run.  Therefore your next STP submission (assuming it’s right) should bring the balances back to being correct.

     

    It’s very important to check your figures each submission via your RA reports.

    I use a modified YTD Payroll Summary - set to show columns by applicable pay period (eg week, 2 weeks etc) - & always cross reference that pay run & YTD totals.

    As long as your reckon accounts shows the correct pays and the YTD, next time you upload the normal stp, that should update the YTD at ATO's end as of next submission.

    Kind regards,
