Update pay event Jobkeeper / Reckon STP

Hi all,
Yesterday I edited a payrun dated 31/3 to include the JOBKEEPER-START-FN01 code (1 employee only edited as only one on JK), updated event on STP, when I upload the generated file onto the Reckon Portal it does have Yes for Update Event and I can see the JOBKEEPER-START-FN01 code in the Detail of the file but all dates are showing as 4/5 - the pay date is 4/5 (which I understand as the file is created on that date) and in the detail of the file it also has Period 4/5 to 4/5. Just concerned that I can not see any reference to the 31/3 pay date (which was for the pay period 16/3-29/3). I have not edited payruns on STP before so this may be normal but just wanted to check before submitting. Can anyone assist?
Thank you

That sounds normal to me

This is exactly what I did (except submitted  on the 1/5 for 31/3 pay event update).
All went through fine with the STP and ATO eligibility confirm for April done yesterday

Thanks Janine, so the date for your file submitted and the date range in the detail was 1/5?
Just nervous due to not seeing the actual pay period dates.
Thanks for your reply.

Yes I did the update on 31/3 pays - just adding the FN01 start code - then in reckon STP I selected the 31/3 - selected update event and the relevant employees I wanted to update - nothing was added to these pays except the start code.

when I lodged stp I said it was an update event  - upload came in as 1/5 date and Gross $0 and 44 employees - when I go into detail it shows the employees correct (latest Gross etc from most recent payrun) then if you drill into the employee detail further - same latest gross etc but the dates are from 1/5 to 1/5
all worked fine so believe you should be ok as long as the original selection was the correct paydate in reckon
I had similar doubts to  you initially

Thanks for the detailed reply. I submitted the file today so hope all will be ok. I definitely chose 31/3 paydate in Reckon so should be good. I did notice when trying to find a similar question/answer that a community member recommended to Reckon that an Update Event when submitted on the Portal show the actual pay period that was being updated so maybe it has confused others too. I only work a few hours a week for this business so not a lot of time to nut these things out.
Thanks again, much appreciated!
