What STP 2 classification is Christmas Bonus in Reckon Hosted

NarellePaterson Member Posts: 111 ✭✭

About to pay Christmas Bonus tomorrow on checking I notice I have Bonus listed as type - addition and Gross Payments in tax tracking and Expense account -Payroll expenses:gross wages. Is this correct or should it be in Bonus and commissions my Reckon agent help set up for STP so I am not sure if I should change it ? Advice please.

    Gross Payments was correct for initial STP (Phase 1) but it should be under Bonuses & Commissions for STP2 ☺️
