STP Reconciliation

I am currently using Reckon 2019 for payroll and Reckon Gov Connect to lodge for STP. How can I reconcile what has been lodged in Gov Connect to the payroll in the Reckon 2019 file. I can't find any reports to run in Gov Connect.

In Gov Connect look at the details of the last lodgement. They are YTD figures, but will only have the employees who were included in the pay. To see other’s totals you have to go to the pay in which they were paid. I printed out of Reckon One a YTD totals report and ticked them off against these figures in Gov Connect YTD totals

Hi Leonie


There’s not a specific default report within the software – I use a memorised Payroll Summary report that I’ve modified to show “This Payroll Year-to-date” date range with “Display Columns by” as per the applicable Pay frequency (eg Week, 2 Week, Month etc)


I run this report every time I submit an STP lodgment ensuring the latest column totals match my new file totals & the overall YTD matches the total STP YTD amounts.


TIP: I set the default Preferences for (all) reports to:

  • bigger font (usually 11 or 12) &
  • display negative numbers in red – nice & easy to read!
