STP final pay same day as usual pay run

  • Question
  • Updated 2 weeks ago
I have processed my normal pay run & uploaded the STP file.  I have now been advised that I need to terminate an employee on the same day.  when I go to do the final pay event, his name only appears once. so I selected him only & put "final pay event".

However when I go to upload the file i get the error "failed to validate pay run event".

How can I fix this?

Or should I just do an "update event" file?  Without selecting final pay event?  I have terminated the employee in my Reckon file so can I assume that it will pick up that information without me telling it so?

I have received the following error message from the ATO when I did an update event file.

  • The date entered for Pay/Update Date must not be later than today's date
It was the same date as the previous submission date so I have no idea what is wrong.  In saying that, it has updated the individual who was terminated to show their correct payroll up to & including their termination pay.  It just doesn't say "final event"

I've asked our STP dev to review your query. He'll be along shortly with info.
