How to lodge RFBA via STP post 31.03.19

Good Morning. We use Reckon Accounts Hosted - version 2018 R2 - and have been lodging our payroll via STP since 1 July 2018. Our pays are done on a weekly basis and are up to date as of last Thursday. My problem is that after 31 March 2019 I found that I have to declare an amount for Reportable Fringe Benefits for one of our employees (in relation to a motor vehicle benefit). The KB 5148 that Reckon Support advised me to look at shows I need to set up two "Additions" in my Payroll Items and post the grossed up FBT value to the "FBT Contribution" and a negative same amount as a "FBT Deduction" - and this has to be dated prior to 31 March 2019 for it to show up in an employees pay summary. Since the pays have already been lodged I tried to do an unscheduled pay run with just the FBT amounts entered on it and date it 29.03.19 (a Friday). Problem is when I try to lodge via STP the file rejects with an error message saying the gross amount and tax value are both zero. Does anyone know how to remedy this without me having to enter a minimal value as a wage on this unscheduled payrun?
