Single Touch Payroll - update event v full file replacement

Hi am on Reckon Accounts hosted and have realised that was an error in the last STP submission through Reckon GovConnect.

There were only two (new) employees on that particular run.

2 weeks later (today) have discovered a problem and will need to correct the previously submitted STP which was done on 3/12/21.

To fix the problem do I use Update Event of Full File Replacement when resubmitting STP for the 3/12/21 pay run?

    It will be included in your next submission anyway so you don’t have to do either but I would probably select full file replacement

    Thanks Chris ... there was a problem with it because for some reason the software had a figure in the gross on STP which was under, so had to reverse because todays run simply added todays run to an incorrect figure.

    I think (and hope) I am on the right track and when resubmitting will use FFR as you suggested.

    Problem stemmed from Salary Sacrifice issue.

    Fingers crossed, thanks for you help!

    I must be missing something here ...

    The initial payslip for the new (Sal Sac) employee for one week was as follows per the attached ( 2 pages & STP record in

    Reckon Gov Connect)-

    Gross salary on payslip is 1,442.31

    But Gross pay inserted on Reckon Single Touch payroll is $1,086.54

    What am I missing?

    I don't get it ...

    The $1,086.54 gross pay being reported to ATO seems to be:

    Gross $1,442.31

    less sal sac - 500.00

    plus SGC $144.23

    Why would SGC be included in Gross Salary? I must be missing something here.

    I redid it it taking a lot of time to undo today's pay as well as the possible problem one (3/12/21), but nothing has changed.
