Payroll Lodgement Error

Trying to lodge my first payroll event and I get the following warning.

It doesn't make sense as all of the information is there.

 

 There are validation issues with the Business Settings:

  • Reason: A mandatory field has not been completed. The element 'Rp' in namespace 'http://www.sbr.gov.au/ato/payevnt' has invalid child element 'AustralianBusinessNumberId' in namespace 'http://www.sbr.gov.au/ato/payevnt'. List of possible elements expected: 'SoftwareInformationBusinessManagementSystemId' in namespace 'http://www.sbr.gov.au/ato/payevnt'. Hint: while processing parent element [Rp] child mandatory element [SoftwareInformationBusinessManagementSystemId] was expected but not found

Payroll Lodgement Error

Hello NightOwlCo,

 

This error message often has to do with missing or incorrect information in the Business Management Software (BMS) ID or ABN fields in the company's settings. Can you please check both using the following steps.

 

Checking BMS ID:

  1. From the main Employees screen, select Payroll Settings
  2. Select ATO Settings
  3. Select Electronic Lodgement & STP
  4. Check the Business Management Software (BMS) ID. If the field is blank, please contact us to resolve the issue.

Checking the ABN:

  1. From the main Employees screen, select Payroll Settings
  2. Select ATO Settings
  3. Verify that the ABN listed is correct.

If you have checked the following areas and still find no errors, please contact us and our support team can assist you with your inquiry.

Hi NightOwlCo,

 

The BMS ID field is automatically pre-filled with a unique code when you switch on payroll and enable e-lodgement. If the code has been removed, you can follow Ken's advice above to contact our Support Team who will assist you in retrieving that code. Once it has been entered in and saved, you should be able to proceed with lodgement. You can click here to contact them or do so in-product by:

 

  1. In your QuickBooks Online, click the Help menu in the upper-right corner.
  2. Select Contact us and enter the details of your concern.
  3. Click Let's talk and choose Chat or Get a callback.
  4. Enter the required information.

I've contacted support via chat. Extremely unhelpful. Ignored my first statement about the missing BMS ID. I haven't had a response for about 15 minutes in the active chat.

Oh the chat is still active.

Almost an hour how.

 

Assumptions that I have done something incorrectly.

 

Direction to add a BMS ID from other software - assuming I have used other software - which I haven’t.


Ultimately trying to do anything other than fix the fact that the BMS ID was never generated.

 

Thanks QBO. One issue after the next.

If I re-add my company details as an additional employing entity, then copy the BMS ID generated for the clone entity, I can then add that as "BMS ID from previous software" to work around the issue caused by the BMS ID not being generated?

 

I wouldn't see that as being an issue given that the BMS ID generated would be generated based on the same company information and ABN.

Hi NightOwlCo, 

 

I think in terms of understanding what BMS ID is required for your payroll profile you should not create another entity at this time and use this current BMS ID. I think it would be in your best interest to speak over the phone and we put you in contact with our payroll escalation team. Please feel free to give our team a call on 1800 046 038 (8:30 - 6:30pm , Mon-Fri AEST) where we can make sure to escalate this correctly for you and resolve your issue ASAP. 

 

Thanks
