    Hi Rav,

    I submitted the pay run for last week and got rejected from ATO. The reason is very strange. Would you tell me how to response to ATO

    kind Regards,

    Thanks Rav,

    I do have a new employee that has no TFN, but she is going to apply one. Do I need to wait till she has her TFN to resubmit the rejected pay runs or change the tax scale first?

    Kind Regards,
