Thanks Mirko for the link to  http://kb.reckon.com.au/issue_view.asp?ID=4155 . It is quite helpful even though it applies to QuickBooks and not Payroll Premier.

We have a complicated pay rate structure so need software with more grunt so use Payroll Premier. However, we also have the issue of no payment summaries being generated for employees with zero tax deducted for the financial year. I can't fathom why Reckon haven't addressed this issue as it's over 5 years old now!! A payment summary should be generated for all employees regardless of wether they have had tax deducted or not. What if they have 2 jobs and the aggregate of the two jobs, with unrelated employers, requires them to pay tax ? To require Payroll Premier users to add $0.01 to one pays tax and then to have to take it out is not a fun task, especially for 5 years. And this year we have the added complexity that when you do add the one cent, the GROSS changes?????? There is a bug in the way it originally calculated the pay at the time and when you go to edit it for the tax, it corrects the bug. Come on Reckon - fix this (it is the year 2014 and we put a man on the moon in 1969 with a computer with less grunt than a current mobile phone!!)

This is the error with the gross. This should be a Total Gross of $71.08

PAYG payment summaries do not match yearly pays report.


I am preparing PAYG payment summaries (INB) the same as every year for the last 10. This time the payment summaries do not match the totals (gross/tax etc) in the yearly pays report. The yearly pays report is correct. In compiling the PAYG summaries, the software has added an extra weeks wages for each employee. Any help would be appreciated please.

Hi George, Be careful here. Don't know if this helps but according to what I can ascertain, the ATO works on PAID DATE for Payment Summaries, not Period End Date. When running Payment Summaries you should change the 'Preference', 'Printing' to 'Date Paid'. So if a pay ended prior to 30 June but was paid on or after 1 July then that pay will not be included in 2013 Payment Summaries. When you run all yearly reports, be they yearly pays report or payment summaries they all should then match.

EOFY - Payroll period.


Hi Guys,  Our pay period is Monday 23/6 to Sunday 29/6 and paid on 27/6. As this was the last payment date for pays in the 13/14 Fin Year am I okay to process the next pay period 30/6-6/7 in R3?

Do any manual tax/super adjustments need to be made for 30/6-6/7 pay period as it has 1 day of June in it?
Thanks
Michelle

EmpDupe File.


I am in the process of completing our payment summaries but can not create the EmpDupe file.

I am following the instructions;
Choose Reports menu > Payment Summaries > Create EmpDupe file for ATO

I get through the first two steps but it doesn't offer me an option to create the file?

Can anyone help please?

I have two errors on an EmpDupe file submitted to the ATO.

Reason Code:  VR04                      Total errors:    1
The field must not contain blanks or non numeric characters.

Reason Code:  VR34                      Total errors:    1
The Payer Australian business number or Withholding payer number field contains an Australian business number therefore the Branch number field must be within the range of '001-999'.

Where in Reckon accounts can I enter the correct details? Or. Any other suggestions.

Hi Pancho, 

VR04 might be caused by the Branch number as well, because it shifts characters to the incorrect data field as a result. Just enter the 3 digit branch number and validate the file again.

Let us know if you still encounter the error message.

Thanks
Jason

Makes sense, as all I did was add branch number and all was well.

How do I copy to other location?

Hey Jessica, you'd need to save it to your Q drive. Once it is saved you can download it to your local drive. If you haven't used the feature yet, we have a video on how upload/download works. ^mirko

One thing to note is the location of the saved empdupe file has changed.

It is now

C:> ProgramData > Reckon > Reckon Accounts 2015 > edition & flavour 20xx > filename > Export Files > EMPDUPE Files > EmpDupe.txt

Would be nice if you could update the kb article with this info.

Have you checked that you have all the employees TFN in correctly and the business details in company information are correct. I had a similar problem last year and it was as simple as checking the data. Good luck
