Preparing For EOFY In ClockOn
- Verify that you are using the latest release of ClockOn
Ensure that you are on the latest release of ClockOn prior to commencing the EOFY process. You can confirm this by viewing our Release Notes article and comparing the ClockOn Build Number to your system.
If you are not on the latest version and are a self-hosted customer, follow the steps in the Manual Updating ClockOn article, note that these steps will need to be done from your ClockOn server.
- Verify Your Location Details
Ensure that you check/verify the details within the Locations Manager to confirm that the site detail is correct.
- Confirm That You Have Processed Your Final Payroll For The Financial Year
The Payment Date will determine which financial year that the amounts for that payroll will reside.
- Check Your Reporting
Use the ClockOn reporting to confirm your employee payroll submission figures are correct.
To do this we recommend using the reports listed in the EOFY FAQ article.
If you have questions or queries in regards to the EOFY process please see our EOFY FAQ help guide.
Submitting EOFY Through ClockOn
The next step is to perform an STP employee update event to finalize your employees for the financial year to the ATO. To do this please follow the instructions in the following help guide; Single Touch Payroll (STP) - EOFY Submission.
Please note: As per the ATO individual payment summaries are no longer required to be issued to staff, as such the PAYG Validation and PAYG Wizard screens have been removed from the system. That being said you are still able to produce and or email documentation pertaining to the employee's financial year balances for the employees via the last step on the as detailed in the Single Touch Payroll (STP) - EOFY Submission article.
Regenerating PAYG Summaries for years prior to STP (2020 and prior)
You are still able to re-print the PAYG summaries for years prior to STP (2020) from the system.
To do this use the PAYG Wizard to generate the employee's manual PAYG summaries.
