Why Don't My Report Amounts Match My STP Submission?

 

You may notice that some amounts in the STP reports (Submission Report and Payment Summary Report), or PAYG payment summaries do not match gross totals in the Group Tax or Pay Summary Reports. This is likely due to one of the following reasons:

  • Itemised allowances (such as JobKeeper) get 'split up', and are reported separately to general gross amounts.
  • Employee Termination Payments (such as redundancy payments and wages in lieu of notice) are also shown separately.
  • Please ensure you are running your comparison reports by processed date from 1/7/XXXX to 30/6/XXXX as STP/YTD amounts are gathered using these parameters by default.

    Use Processed Date Selected

  • Ensure your pay runs are marked with the correct processed date (date of payment), as the FY should only include pays made within those dates.

    Wrong Processed Date

    Use the Set Processed/Paid Date For Pay Run tool at the bottom of the Pays screen to quickly correct any mistakes in the processed date. For more info on how Lightning manages pay dates see our FAQ here.
