Can you please confirm if for the end of the financial year Final Pay event needs to be checked when processing the last pay run for the financial year.

I would also like to know this. I've seen on another question that there will be a new EOFY function added to the STP report, but do we also have to hit 'final pay event'? I'm also wondering how soon this will be implemented as my final financial year pay will happen on Tuesday (25/06) so I need the function to be working by then.
 There seems to be no clear answers surrounding this - the same questions are being asked over and over so hopefully reckon will come back with a definitive answer soon

I also have a question about all this, I paid one employee in late June but did not have the FINAL option to tick, how do I resend data as final
also our directors salary last payment for the Year was made in late May and off course not marked final
I tried to do a Zero dollar pay run to mark as final but Reckon argues about that idea
any ideas what too do
We had another employee wo was terminated in December 18, He was never paid via STP, do I do a ENDUPE file just for him ?

After doing the final pay run and then updating to the 2019 version there is an end of financial year option that sends through an updated file that picks up all employees paid. I only commenced STP in March and this final file picked up the employees who had stopped working in December and reported them as well.

Fantastic, That Worked and yep, It picked up all current and even the terminated employees that were not reported previously via STP
