Have already uploaded pay run to Gov Connect. Have since discovered that the pay run was incorrect and it has been updated. I now need to submit again, do i use full file replacement or update event? The employees were paid an additional amount due to the incorrect calculations.

Hi Susan,
If its the whole entire pay run that is incorrect and needs correction then you can use Full File Replacement only if its the last successful submission. If its an older pay run ie. not the last one then you cannot use Full File Replacement.

More info on Full File Replacement & Update Events and how/when to use them here -

Ok, I have a situation where an employee was missed in 3 successive payruns pre done wages for Christmas & New Year. STPs were also pre lodged for all 3 pays. I was then told another employee needed paying for same periods, I prepared pays and set payments in bank but these pays are not in the STPs lodged.
Ok, so this week I did a payrun which included the extra employee. STP has been lodged.
What do I do if anything about the 3 pays not lodged.
Thanks in advance
