Undo and update the last payrun but nothing change in STP to send update

Hi,

I have done all my April payrun (4 payruns), they were paid and submitted to STP.
My next payrun will be 4 May.
To do the Jobkeeper flag by 30 April. I did undo the last payrun (20-26 Apr) and add JOBKEEPER-START-FN01 to the allowance to flag the first fortnight payment as they suggest from Reckon FAQ.I’ve already processed my April pays. What can I do to register for JobKeeper?

After amended Jobkeeper allowance and click on "Finish Payrun", nothing change in Single Touch Payroll for the last payrun (like nothing change/update in the last payrun), also no update box after employee name to tick, no "Update Send" option to resubmit to STP...

I repeated the undo payrun step many times but it look like it doesn't work.
I'm not sure what I did wrong?

Or do you think I should do a new unscheduled payrun for 20-26Apr (same period as the last payrun) instead, and add JOBKEEPER-START-FN01 (with no other gross payment) and submit to STP, will this work?

Thanks :)

Hi Mic, 

After you amended the payrun to include OBKEEPER-START-FN01 ....

Did you go to Single Touch Payroll In Reckon One (Not Gov Connect) click on the payrun that was amended, and the click "Set to Draft", then re-click on  "Send to GovConnect STP" ??

Then Launch GovConnect and check the detail before submitting to OBKEEPER-START-FN01

 Just confirming that you did that step.

Thank you Linda!
"Set to Draft" is a key to fix my problem as I could not find an update box before
Already submitted the update event with JOBKEEPER-START_FN01

Thanks!

Hi Mic, when you updated last week's payrun, you only included the FN1? How did you do with the FN2? Can you please give me a screenshot of the update you've done? Thanks :)

You only use FN01 when you start to indicate what fortnight you are beginning with, don’t use subsequent ones

Hi Mic, thank you for your reply.

I am clear with the first employee. She needs to be paid the TOPUP for the 2 fortnights.

For the second employee, what you mean is, since she started working on the second fortnight, I need to use the FN02 code. But her TOPUP will be the $1500 for the first fortnight and any subsequent short fall for the second fortnight?

So, I am going to undo last week's payrun to include these required TOPUPs, am I right? 

Another question is, will I need to use the FNXX codes ongoingly for the rest of the payruns during jobkeeper period?

ok, I understand what you mean now
Your second employee is qualify on FN01 but started working on FN02

In my opinion, i agree with your scenario 1 (from your previous comment)

JOBKEEPER-START-FN01
JOBKEEPER-TOPUP ($3000 minus the actual payment of the weeks you paid her)

You have to use JOBKEEPER-START-FN01 as she is qualify Jobkeeper since FN01, and you will get reimburse from FN01, Then you use TOPUP for amount of FN01 (which is full amount of $1500) plus FN02 ($1500 minus actual pay)

You don't need to use the FN code for the rest of the payrun, you only needs to notify START to ATO once per eligible employee. And you notify to ATO again when you stop paying Jobkeeper to employee by using JOBKEEPER-FINISH-FNXX

Thank you very much Mic. You have cleared my mind. lol

My last query (for the rest of the jobkeeper period) is if an employee earns a genuine wage of less than $750 per week, do I only make up the short fall as a TOPUP payment in the Allowance section? Or, do I just enter her wage to make it $750 exactly?

Glad to help :)

My understanding, you should pay the short fall of $750 per week as a JOBKEEPER-TOPUP on each payrun.
