How can I fix errors in my entries

I commenced using the STP free app at the beginning of the financial year.  when I initially set my two staff up, I mistakenly added their first pay amount twice.  I didn't pick this up until I had submitted it.  Now, I can't go back and correct the error.  I have also picked up that I incorrectly entered some Superannuation into one of the staff's pay cycles.  I must have been having a brain fade moment! Can these errors be fixed.  I have gone back and manually checked my staff's income for the year and all is correct if I can delete that inital double 'pay' and the super error.

As an example...
If the details of the entry you want to remove is..
Gross pay $1,000
Tax $200
Superannuation $95

Then you would choose 
"Payruns" (at the bottom of your screen)
 Then "+" (at the top of your screen)
You will have the choice of "New pay run" or "New adjustment" or "Cancel"
Choose "New adjustment"

Choose the date and the employee, then enter the same amounts with a minus in front of them to deduct these amounts from the employee...
Gross pay          $  -1,000
Tax                     $    - 200
Superannuation $      - 95

Thank you so much Nadia. That is very helpful.
I do have another issue and wondered if there is a way of fixing it?
When I set my two staff up, on the app, I accidentally entered their first pay amount in the year-to-date amounts, which has caused their annual income & tax to be out by one pay cycle. Any way of fixing this?

You will need to do a negative pay (gross, tax and super) for the extra amount Tamara - as long as you have double checked the employees income statement on their MyGov.

HI Robyn, I am not sure how to even access my employee's income statements on their My Gov, or do I need to ask them to do that and let me know?
Thanks!
