STP Lodgement

in 1 payroll week I paid the wages and uploaded the wage file.

I also paid staff bonus's that week but instead of loading the STP file for the bonus, I again uploaded the wages file so I have 2 of the same STP files uploaded instead of 1 STP file for wages and 1 STP file for the bonus.

My question is how do I get rid of the duplicated file?

And can I lodge the Bonus file now.

Thanks in advance

    YTD figures are all that’s uploaded in the STP file, so no need to do anything. If you want to look at the details of the last submission the totals should be correct and the same as in the wages report up to date

    As Kris said, each submission is simply updating YTD balances meaning a duplicate submission will not change anything so yes, you can submit your next STP Pay Event for the bonuses ☺️

    NB: A submission can only be deleted whilst still in Draft mode (eg after you Upload it but not after you Submit it) Unfortunately, this is an ATO requirement (so not down to Reckon) meaning - despite not affecting anything - it stays there 😬
