Hi, I am using Reckon Accounts Premier Contractor Edition.  I have accidentally uploaded the same payrun twice through the STP process.  I cannot find a way to remove the duplicate data in Reckon GovConnect.  Please help

Hi Matt

 

If you haven’t gone past the “Upload” step, there is a “Delete” button option. 

Unfortunately, if the payrun has been “Submit”-ted, it’s not able to be deleted (This is an ATO requirement) however you can upload the correct payrun as a “Replacement File” to update to the correct figures.

 

All submissions remain in the list - even those that were unsuccessful (“Error” status) thanks to the ATO’s audit trail obligations - however I believe Reckon are working on an option to at least be able to “Hide” these, down the track  :)

Hi Shaz, I have 2 identical entries for 15/10/19 which have been uploaded.  I would have thought the Reckon system would have warned about a duplicate file but no.  I don't know how to replace a duplicate file with nothing.

Hi Matt

 

Unfortunately, this is likely more an ATO restriction rather than Reckon as ATO set the guidelines for Payroll Providers, with very specific criteria.   

 

If you click on the “Detail” link in your later submission, you can check each employee’s YTD figures against those in RA to confirm that these are current & correct.

 

I always recommend creating & memorising 2 reports – one to specifically check your payrun totals against each submission & a second for YTD by Employee.

 

  • Generate the “Payroll Summary” report

  • Set the date range on the Display tab as This Financial year to Date

  • Modify it to total (“Display columns by ...”) by:

  • Frequency (eg Week, Two Week etc) or

  • Employee

  • On the Fonts & Numbers tab, I always set to Show Negative numbers ... In bright red as this makes the PAYGW figures much easier to see!

     

    For the Per Payrun Frequency ...

    The latest column (before the Totals) in your RA report should match your latest/current STP Portal submission totals

     

    For Per Employee ...

    The columns in your RA report will show the YTD totals of each component per Employee & should match with the same under the latest submission’s “Details”
