As Kat has suggested in the video, there are a couple of reports that you want to run and cross-check to ensure the amounts are all correct!
Report number 1! Payroll Activity Summary. This can be found under all reports and then the payroll section.
Report number 2! General Ledger. This can be found under all reports and under the accounting section. A tip with this one – make sure you have YTD ticked!
You then want to compare the following balances:
Total earnings = total wages
Total super = total superannuation expense
Total Tax = total PAYGW
All matching? Perfect!
If not, it’s best to go through the process of elimination. We would suggest doing this per quarter first, to then try and cover off where the error is. You can then break it down to months to find the payrun that contains the error.
Once all correct, it is now time to run the payment summaries.
If you need further information, Xero have a great video that can be found at the following link, which will help guide you through the process - https://help.xero.com/au/PayrollEOFY

With the borders between the State and Territories all but open and 2021 in sight, there is a hunger for a return to normal. With Australia's desire to ‘get on with things,' sentiment reached its highest level since November 2013 and Christmas spending is expected to be consistent with previous years.
