Hi, This is my first year using the STP software.  Why would my end of year figures differ from my weekly payruns entered. I've checked each weeks entries which are correctly matched with my payroll software. Can anyone help?

Hi Donna

 

Are you saying your YTD totals in your STP submissions are different to the YTD totals in your accounting software?

 

Some payroll payments are not required to be reported via STP (eg ETP Death Benefit payments are voluntary / Compensation, sickness or accident payments cannot be reported) & - depending on which STP platform you’re using to submit – some platforms do not have the capability to report on all required payroll components (eg the free Reckon STP App is only able to report Gross Payments, Allowances & SGC Super, not RESC or ETP/termination payments).

 

Which Reckon accounting software are you using & are you using Reckon GovConnect portal to lodge your STP submissions?

It may be that some of your Payroll Items are not mapped to the relevant Payroll (sub)account(s) ...?
