AccountRight Plus and Premier, Australia only
If you're registered for Single Touch Payroll (STP), there's no need to prepare payment summaries so we've removed that option from the Payroll command centre. If an employee needs a copy of their income statement (payment summary), they can access these details through myGov. Visit the ATO for more information.
Stay compliant by using the latest AccountRight version, and see how we've simplifed your end of payroll year.
If you're registered for STP but you need to complete a payment summary (confirm with the ATO if you're not sure), you'll need to complete a manual payment summary for the employee using forms available from the ATO.
AccountRight 2020.1 and earlier
When preparing payment summaries at the end of a financial year, we recommend saving a PDF copy of the payment summaries and storing them should you need to reprint them later. Just double-click a saved payment summary to display it, then print it.
If you didn't choose where to save the PDFs, they're saved by default here (201x.x is the AccountRight version the payment summaries were created using, e.g. 2017.2):
PC Edition: C:\Users\<user.name>\Documents\MYOB\AccountRight\201x.x\Payment Summaries
Server Edition: C:\Users\Public\Documents\MYOB\AccountRight\201x.x\Payment Summaries
Need to recreate an old payment summary?
If you're currently using STP but need a copy of a payment summary from a few years ago (when you weren't using STP), there are a few things you can do.
First, check to see if you have a copy of the payment summary. If you do, you can reprint this copy.
If you didn't save a copy or can't find where you saved the PDFs of the payment summaries, you'll need to download the older version of AccountRight you used during the same period as the payment summary.
Then you need to restore the backup of the file that has the payment summary you need and run through the Payment Summary Assistant.
Once that's done, you can print (and save!) a copy of the payment summary.
Also, remind your employees that their payment summaries should be available for them in myGov.
