Hi pd1harris, 

 

You can do this via an Update Event: 

  • Navigate to Employees 
  • Select Reports > Single Touch Payroll 
  • In the top right you will see Create Update Event 
  • Select the applicable Pay Category and lodge 

This will update the Year-to-Date figures with the ATO. For more information on this process please see here: https://support.yourpayroll.com.au/hc/en-au/articles/360000305756-Creating-Lodging-an-Update-Event

Yes I don't see where the tier information has been updated either. 
Update I found out how...
In Payrun "Add Jobkeeper Payment"
Select "Assign Tier"
Select "Correct Tier"

How do i do it if I have already submitted the pay runs to the ATO and made automated super payments against them so they can not be adjusted.
Do i just do an additional weekly payrun for the correct period and assign teir in that?

Hi Surchling,

 

To determine what fortnight you should have commenced paying an employee the JobKeeper payment, refer to the ATO's JobKeeper fortnight calendar. Cross-check the dates allocated to each fortnight with the date your JobKeeper payments should have started for the employee. For example, if you paid an employee the JobKeeper payment for the first time on the 30 September (ie pay date was 30/9/20), this means the payment was made in FN14.

 

To record this in the pay run (so it is then reported via STP):

  1. Go to the pay run, select the employee's name and select the green Actions button
  2. Add JobKeeper Payment and then select JobKeeper Start 
  3. Select JOBKEEPER-START-FNXX (the one you need to choose for your employee) from the JobKeeper period dropdown
  4. Select Finished 
  5. Select Save.

When you finalise and lodge this pay run, the ATO will be advised that you're claiming the subsidy from whatever fortnight you choose when you created the START-FN## pay category.

 

Assign JobKeeper tier

 

This action is mandatory for all new and existing eligible employees. If the eligible employee's tier is not reported, the ATO will not reimburse for that employee.

 

Your employee only needs to satisfy the 80-hour threshold in one of the 28-day reference periods. If they satisfy it in one reference period, they do not need to satisfy the other.

Employees will satisfy the 80-hour threshold if, in their 28-day reference period, the total of the following is 80 hours or more:

  • actual hours worked, and/or
  • hours they were on paid leave, and/or
  • hours they were paid for absence on a public holiday.

If your eligible employee satisfies the 80-hour threshold, they will be classified under Tier 1. If they do not meet the 80-hour threshold, they will be classified under Tier 2.

 

Once each employee has been assessed and tier determined, record this in the pay run (so it is then reported via STP):

  1. Go to the pay run, select the employee's name and select the green Actions button
  2. Select Add JobKeeper Payment then select Assign JobKeeper tier from the options dropdown list
  3. Select JOBKEEPER-TIER1 or JOBKEEPER-TIER2 from the dropdown
  4. Select Finished 
  5. Select Save 

Please note: 

We automatically apply a rate of $0.01 to the JobKeeper tier pay categories. This pay rate is required so that the tier classification is included in the pay/update event to the ATO.

 

If you'd like more information on this, you can see the Set up and manage JobKeeper payments article.

How can I edit the last pay run to add in the jobkeeper start e.g. FN21 and add in the tier, I dont want to have to wait until the next payrun

@Jade12, I created a new additional Payrun for previous dates with only the Jobkeeper tiers in it which i then submitted to the ATO like a regular pay run, then I updated the STP event.
Employees -> Reports -> STP -> Create Update Event
Just be mindful to correct your dates for the next normal payrun back to what they should be.

Thank you :-) :-), I will do that now.

How do I go about dealing with the 0.03 cents (3 employees)?? Does it change their gross earnings in QBO?

I pay my staff manually so I added 0.01 to each amount in the next bank payroll. I don't know how you would do it is paid automatically.
