Finalising Year in STP when we changed entities partway through year

We changed entities from a Trust to a partnership part of the way through the financial year. The ABN is the same. I can't remember whether I did a Finalisation back in October when the change happened.

I have Finalised the Partnership to end of June but can't seem to do the same for the Trust, which comes up as not tax ready. If I do a Final Pay run with no amounts in it and send that through and then do a Finalisation, will that solve the problem?

    Hi @Lyn Nosow

    What sort of changes were made in your company file and STP entity when you changed over from a trust to a partnership?

    The entity name and/or branch number? Did you create a seperate STP entity?

    Hi @Lyn Nosow !

    Different entities would normally have different ABNs, in which case you would need a separate (new) tile setup in Reckon’s portal for STP submission 🤔
