Payment summaries: Make a backup

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.

After you have saved your EMPDUPE file, it’s a good idea to make a backup of your company file, so you have a record of it that you can refer to later if necessary.

For example if you need to reprint payment summaries and you didn’t save a PDF of the form at the time of preparing the payment summaries, you can restore this backup and print them again. If you restore a backup, only use it to prepare and send your payment summaries. Don't use this company file for recording pays or other transactions.

Congrats! You’re done for another year.
