Only available to Australian businesses using Single Touch Payroll reporting in MYOB Essentials

When you process an employment termination payment (ETP), you record the payment in MYOB Essentials and you notify the ATO about it from the Payroll reporting centre.

To undo a termination payment, you'll need to remove it from the Payroll reporting centre to notify the ATO. And if you haven't already, you'll also need to delete the ETP transaction from MYOB Essentials.

You might also need to do this if you have duplicated ETP payments in the Payroll reporting centre.

  • Go to the Payroll menu and choose Payroll reporting.
  • Click the Employment terminations tab.
  • Click the employee's name to display their termination payments.

    title2. Record a $0 pay for the employee

    Record a $0 (zero dollar) pay for the employee to ensure the ATO has their latest year-to-date payroll information. This is like a regular pay, but you'll remove all hours and amounts. You'll also declare this pay just like any other pay.

    1. Process a $0.00 pay for the employee by removing all hours and amounts (Payroll menu > Enter pay).
