If you’re reading this article, we assume you’ve already done your End of Year Reconciliation and published your employees’ payment summaries (remember publishing payment summaries has to be done by July 14!). If not, take a look at those links for tips on how to do it in KeyPay. The next step would be submitting PAYG payment summary information for your employees to the ATO.

The ATO requires that all businesses submit PAYG payment summary information for their employees by August 14 2018. To make this simpler for you, you can lodge the PAYG payment summaries automatically through KeyPay. Alternatively, if your preference is to lodge the EMPDUPE file through your business portal, we can also facilitate this.

Lodging electronically via SBR is the quickest method, but to be able to do that, you must ensure you’re set up for electronic lodgement. If you’re not sure whether you are set up, go to “Payroll Settings” > “ATO Supplier Settings”. Within your ATO Supplier Settings screen, you will see if you are enabled for electronic lodgement. If you are not, refer to ATO Cloud software authentication and authorisation (CAA) for instructions on setting this up. If you have more than one employing entity set up in your business, don’t forget to enable electronic lodgement for all employing entities! To check you are enabled or to enable electronic lodgement, go to “Payroll Settings” > “Employing Entities”, then follow the instructions provided above.  

Once you’re set up, follow these steps to lodge payment summaries via SBR:

Alternatively, you can generate a PAYG payment summary via EMPDUPE:
