What’s the final pay run for the financial year
The final pay run for the financial year is the pay run with the payment date that falls on or before the 30th of June of that year.
Step 1: Select ‘Run Payroll’
Step 2: Check & edit pay run details
Review and edit your Pay Run Period, Pay Period Ending Date and Payment Date. When you’re ready, select ‘Next’.
Please note that you don’t need to indicate STP finalisation for each pay run. However, you must finalise STP for your last pay run for the financial year. This means that the finalisation option needs to be added only to the last pay run with a payment date that falls before the 30th June of each financial year.
You can see a YTD report of the finalisation figures that will be submitted to the ATO, in Payroller. Log in to the Payroller website. Select ‘Finalise STP’, select the date and view your employees figures this way.
