We have had a number of clients ask questions about reporting part of a year via Single Touch Payroll. If employees were paid earlier in the last financial year before you started Single Touch Payroll but left before you started STP then the ATO prefer that you report via STP their year to date totals.
Please find response below:
As long as you have finalised through STP then you don’t need to report through an Empdup file.
The employees who were not paid after STP was implemented can be reported and finalised through a STP update event. This is the preferred option.
If you cannot report those employee’s through STP then you can provide the employees with a payment summary and report through an Empdup file.
To avoid the potential for duplicates it is recommended not to include any employees who have been finalised through STP in an Empdup file.
