STP - Question re: JobKeeper

Regarding Reckon Online Hosted

We pay weekly and process STP weekly, so I had already processed the first 3 weeks that will be included in the JobKeeper payment.

My question is - I have amended my Reckon Online Hosted records - do I also need to do an "Update Event" in the STP system in order to reflect the below:

A week where I had to make a top up payment to reach the required $750 for each employee, which I have already paid, but called something else. I have amended my records to be the JOBKEEPER-TOPUP Allowance. 

Or by amending my Reckon Online system, will it be uploaded correctly along with the next weeks STP (i.e. in the YTD totals?)

Thanks

Hi Kathy, 

Since lodging an STP from hosted only takes a couple minutes I have re-lodged the STP's since the first payrun in April just to be on the safe side.

I felt more comfortable doing this than risking not getting the Jobkeeper payments in early May.

But Yes, it will show in the YTD totals.

Kind regards

Linda

Hi Linda,

Thanks for your replay.

I think I will go ahead and re-lodge as well.

Thank you!

Thanks for that. But should we be using the ""New Pay Run / Full File Replacement"" option or the 
""Update a previously completed ATO submission or Finalise Year"" to update our previously lodged STP's?

No, just export the file as you normally would do.
