If the employees are not marked as closely held, they may be missing from a pay event because they have been marked as 'Is Final' in a previously created pay, update or finalisation event for that financial year. Any employee that has been marked as 'Is Final' will not show up in subsequent pay events as this status indicates no further lodgements need to be made for the employee in that financial year. You can check this by:
How to proceed depends on a couple of things. If you have only created a Finalisation Event but not submitted it, you can simply delete it and go back to the existing Pay Event to lodge it. If you have already created and lodged a Finalisation, you will need to lodge an Amended Finalisation event to the ATO. If the employees were marked as Is Final in a previous Pay or Update Event, you can use an Update Event to 'undo' this status:

Thank you but the is final box is unticked.
I think it might be some sort of glitch, yesterday 2 payruns wouldnt generate the employee information when I selected to lodge with the ATO but today they did work fine but there is a bunch more pay runs that the information will not generate for. The pay runs are finalised and all settings have been checked. It will generate the income and show that but will not allocate it to anyone.
