Submitted STP shows error with ATO error message 'ATO sent the poll response but the service failed to deserialize it'.  I phoned ATO and they said it was a software issue and to contact provider.  I have not been able to get through to Reckon on phone numbers and have tried email but do not get a response.  Please advise where to contact to fix this error.

Welcome to the Reckon Community Amanda, and sorry to hear you've run into some trouble with your STP submission.

When did you submit this specific pay event that has come back with this error?

I have not been able to get through to Reckon on phone numbers and have tried email but do not get a response.
Can you let me know which phone numbers & prompts you've attempted to call and also the email address you've sent us an email to along with the time & date and I'll chase this up.

The Payroll was submitted on 4/1/2019.  I tried the general support numbe1800 732 566 but it wouldn't let me speak to anyone it just kept referring to the support phone number.  I sent an email to customerservice@reckon.com.au on 6/2/2019 at 12.15pm Adelaide time.

Thanks for getting back to me Amanda,
There was an issue with pay events submitted last month between 1 - 7 January (details here) where lodgements could not be transmitted to the ATO. Your pay event falls within this period. If you have submitted any successful pay events AFTER this then your YTD amounts have been updated.

It sounds like you're an Advantage member so there is a dedicated priority technical support available to you, you'll find it in the Members Area. Regardless though you should have been able to get through to us for help and our apologies that this didn't happen.

Do I have to resubmit that pay event? It has not been put back in draft status, it still shows as error so unable to submit as per information regarding problems on 1-7 January.

If you have submitted any successful pay events AFTER this particular one then your YTD amounts have been updated so there is no need to. Single Touch Payroll submissions are reported on a YTD basis.
