Note the following ERROR MESSAGE received from ATO STP lodgement - HELP??

"The value specified for an item does not match the item type (value = "Staff Payroll Deduction", item type = String, uniqueID = http://sbr.gov.au/ato.payevntemp: TypeC) Hint:  The Enumeration constraint failed.

Am I supposed to understand what this means?

It means that you have the term 'Staff Payroll Deduction' listed in a field where its not accepted. Can you please recheck this.

Hi Rav

Who can I contact to get some assistance with this?   This was a one-off employee deduction (invoice repayment) from the net pay so does not impact the ATO submission?  I can see that it has also impacted subsequent STP lodgements?

Thanks

OK I think I may have found my error in the Payroll Item and have updated same. 

The error has impacted the last 3 pay lodgements - even though the error only occurred on the first of the 3 pays?

So where to now - do I lodge a FULL FILE REPLACEMENT (not for corrections??) for the last pay OR an UPDATE EVENT - for which pay?

Thanks in advance!

Hoping for a response to the last message before I have to process another pay?

Thankyou

You have a couple of options, you can either do an Update Event or wait until the next pay which will then send the YTD figure. 

Best practice is to send a Update Event as its better to get into the standardised processes now while there is some leniency in reporting by the ATO.

Thanks Rav - do I only need to do the Update Event on the last pay and then all 3 pay errors will update?  Sorry for all the questions!
