EOFY mobile app and casual employees

  • Question
  • Updated 1 week ago
Hi, I just started using the mobile app for STP this financial year. We only employ casual workers so was not sure when their employment would cease.

I successfully lodged the pay runs etc as they were due and all are lodged with the ATO.

My questions are:
  • What do I have to do (if anything?) for the EOFY so that my employees receive their payment summaries?
  • I did not select the option for 'last pay run for this financial year' because I was not sure that it was going to be. Do I need to fix this and if so, how?
Thanks in advance for advice.

Employee income statement becomes ‘tax ready’ when finalised. This means having a final pay run for the financial year submitted from the App.
A -$1 gross pay adjustment would decrease YTD gross pay by $1. Then submit a $1 gross pay final pay run.

Thank you, that makes sense. I appreciate the response.

Emma,
Did it work? Does the income statement become ‘tax ready’?

I think so Joseph. I did the adjustment of $-1 and when I did the final payrun of $1 (to balance everything, I was able to select the last pay run for the financial year. I don't know if I get any form of notification to say that everything is 'tax ready' other than the pay run being accepted by the ATO.

Ask employee to check income statement in myGov. Status should be ‘tax ready’.
Good to know it worked.

This is a post from Rav on another thread:
There is a new update coming to the STP app which will contain a more comprehensive end of financial year process. 
It should be available either today or tomorrow and we'll have more information coming on this very soon.  
So, I (Robyn) recommend not yet finalising in the Free STP App.

Thanks for passing this information on Robyn. I think I have already finalised everything. I will check out the information though.
