ETP Type O - Incorrect Tax Tracking Type

  • Question
  • Updated 17 hours ago
I need help in relation to correcting an ETP Type O payment which had an incorrect Tax Tracking Type, unfortunately it has already been finalised for year end 19_20 via STP. 

"Post June 1983 Untaxed Element (O)"  was selected instead of "Post June 1983 Untaxed Element (Low Rate Threshold) (O) and so the ATO is calculating the tax at the higher rate. 

As the year has already been finalised for STP I'm not sure how to correct it.  

I'm using Reckon Accounts.  Any suggestions would be appreciated please.

TIA

Hi Jaime

 

As a 17-yr tax consultant myself, I wouldn’t worry about changing it.  The employee will get any additional tax back that they’re entitled to when they do their tax return!

Thanks for your reply Shaz, will the ATO realise it was the wrong code when processing the tax return using year to date totals and apply the lower tax rate?

Hi Jaime

 

The ATO doesn’t calculate anything from STP - STP is just a reporting tool. 

 

As the error was still related to the same label (“O”), the correct tax calculation will be made when the employee does their tax return   J
