Reckon One Single Touch Payroll - Start reporting with first pay run

  • Problem
  • Updated 4 months ago
Hi, I'm wanting to start STP reporting this week along with the pay run for this week. The pay run period is for 02 Sep to 08 Sep (for payment 05 Sep). However, when I go to the Single Touch Payroll section, the pay run is appearing with the payment dates from 01 Jul to 05 Sep with the 02 Sep to 08 Sep pay run gross and PAYG numbers appearing as YTD, when this is incorrect.

1. Do you know how I can correct the payment dates so that the right information (for pay run 02 Sep to 08 Sep and not YTD) is sent to the ATO?   

2. I understand YTD information is not required to be inputted into Reckon One before STP reporting. Please correct me if I'm wrong or guide me as to how I can input the YTD information and send to ATO. 

Many thanks,
Angela

You will have to put in YTD figures if you intend using these records for the payment summaries, and if you have paid wages for July and August

Hi Angela

You will need to update your figures in Reckon One to show what the year to date figures actually are.  

When reporting the STP to the ATO they are updating the year to date figures not the weekly figures.

Thanks Lynda! Once I've updated the year to date figures and send this first STP report to ATO, can I start sending weekly figures after that?

Hi Angela, yes that's how it works.

Sorry Lynda, I've loaded the YTD details in the YTD set up (under Settings icon), but the numbers are not loading or or being populated once I try to schedule a pay run. Do you know why this might be the case? Thank you.

You haven't selected Final pay.

I am not sure why your year to date figures would not be showing in a Payroll report, or as the year to date figures on their payslips.
I would check that you have done your year to date figures correctly and if so ask the Reckon Team for some guidance.

Thanks so much, Lynda! Sorry last question, do you think I can submit the YTD figures manually by entering the numbers in a pay run (from 01 July to now) or back date and submit separate weekly pay runs from 01 July to now? Thank you.
