AccountRight Plus and Premier 2020.2 only (Australian businesses using Single Touch Payroll reporting)

Using AccountRight 2020.3? You don’t need to follow the process described below to remove an incorrect termination payment from the Payroll reporting centre. Instead, just reverse the pay in AccountRight and you’ll be prompted to submit the reversal to the ATO for STP reporting. This will automatically remove the incorrect payment.


When you process an employee's final pay, you record the payment in AccountRight 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 remove the termination payment transaction from AccountRight.

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

Let's step you through it.


1. Remove the termination payment from the Payroll reporting centre
  1. Go to the Payroll command centre and click Payroll reporting.
  2. Click Payroll Reporting Centre.
  3. Click the Employment terminations tab.
  4. Click the employee's name to display their termination payments.

    Click the dropdown arrow to see the components of a termination pay.

  5. Select the termination to be removed.
  6. Click Remove & notify the ATO.

  7. Enter your name as the authorised declarer and click Send.
2. Remove the termination payment from AccountRight

If you haven't already, you'll need to remove the payroll transaction containing the ETP components from AccountRight. You can do this by either reversing or deleting the transaction.
