Setting up the next scheduled payroll, payslips are all in order, showing the correct deductions, but when I go to Create Custom Liability Payment, the FBT amounts for all employees are zero so I can't create the payment. How do I fix this? TIA

Hi Janneia,

For a FBT payroll item to show in create custom liability payments, it would need to be a deduction linked to a liability account.  Maybe on the FBT payment you need to have an addition item for the FBT and then a deduction item for the same amount as per this KB http://kb.reckon.com.au/issue_view.asp?ID=5148 - but linking the deduction to a liability account instead of an expense account.  I'm not an accountant sorry so no sure on how FBT works for accounting practices, but I do know how Reckon Accounts works, and you need a deduction link to liability account to have it show in create custom liability payments.

Regards,
Shane.

Thanks Shane. They are linked to a  liability account.
