How do you enter Reportable FBT amount for a previously terminated employee in Payroll Reckon Accounts. I know the workaround which uses two payroll items (FBT Contribution and FBT Deduction), but can you use that in a pay run where there are no hours to pay? So pay will be NIL?

Yes, Leshelle.  I do that each year when I record the annual figures.

One more question if youre still there John.. Ive run the nil pay with the FBT amounts. Now do I lodge to STP as an update event with just that one employee ticked?

Sorry, Leshelle.  I am not into STP yet.  Perhaps somebody else who has a similar lodgement, will be able to provide an answer.

Hi John, I have just discovered that all the FBT reportable amounts were entered into the wrong dated pay run. I did them all yesterday in a live pay run, wheras I should have opened a pre 31/3/19 pay run and entered them in there. So now I have nothing in the boxes on 18/19 payment summaries, and have probably affected the 19/20 summaries. Do you know how I can fix this?

Hi Leshelle.  Sorry I could not come back to you earlier, but I note that you have now received a response to another post of yours.  Yes, you are right.  The key thing is that you must always create the special pay run with a date of 31 March or earlier or else it will head off to the next year.
