Tomorrow I will be doing a normal payrun in payroll premier 18/19 and also need to terminate an employee. I believe I need to run as normal and then go into employee details and add in a termination date - which will then start the wizard? I am hoping that the STP export will work and not cause me grief as i am not sure whether i will end up with one file or not?

Hi Sheryl
I do mine a little different, I highlight the worker then press Wizard. The termination date is entered at the end of this process.
I terminated a worker a few weeks ago but only realised today that a separate STP was created. So just keep that in mind to look for the 2nd file (I should of uploaded 2 files that week)
Don't forget to change the green box to final pay on the STP file. This is so when the worker gets a new job the ATO don't think they have 2 jobs. 
Hope that helps.. :)

Thanks Katrina. I am just worried as I have to run payroll and terminate him on the same day.  Did your termination fall on a pay day?

Yep, a lot of my terminations do. If it makes you nervous do it in two separate pay runs.
Do the normal pay run, finalise it. Then, do the termination as a separate run.
Just have the pay dates the same. Happy to talk over the phone if you want.

I have just terminated an employee in my normal payroll run and his information does not appear on the STP report. After reading the question above, I have searched through my whole payroll file and cannot locate a seperate STP report for the terminated employee. Where would the STP file have gone?

Same thing happened to me! I then did an updated STP pay event & it hasn't processed correctly by the ATO. I have had no response to my query on here & it's frustrating!!!
