Final Pay Event - STP

Hi, 

Can you please clarify Final Pay Event. I understand that this needs to be selected when it is the final pay for the year. However if 1 employee has been terminated and the date is the same date as a normal payrun......Is that employee excluded (deselected) from normal STP creation and then you have to do a separate upload for the final pay event and tick that field???..

Also then because it is dated the same as normal payrun should you select update event AND Final Pay Event??

thankyou,

Gillian

Hi Gillian,

It can be included in the same pay as long as there is a termination date in that employee's profile. 

Yes, the terminated employee must be tagged as final pay. From what I understand, if this isn't done and that employee starts a new job then the ATO will then think they are now working two jobs.

Hi Rav

What do i do in the instance where an employee is paid a day after the normal pay run and it is not a final pay event?

Thanks Rav,

I have marked the payrun as final with the 1 employee having a release date and the other 20+ employees just a normal pay, so hopefully the ATO are not confused and think it is the final payrun for the whole year for the entity as it was the one upload!!
