Issue IDsDescription
CE00029151 CE00028999When reporting lump sum E payments for Single Touch Payroll, only the three most recent financial years were included. This has been resolved so that the ten most recent financial years are included.

On the Superannuation Maintenance screen, if you changed the Minimum Earnings Base field to 0.00 before the start of the new financial year on 1 July 2022, the change wasn't being saved. This has been resolved.


When updating the country code of a terminated working holiday maker (WHM), pressing F9 to find and update another terminated WHM caused all country codes to be incorrectly set to the same code. This has been resolved.

182228321013The Current Pay, One-Off Pay and Standard Pay were incorrectly calculating Medicare levy surcharge amounts. This has been resolved.
CE00029360 CE00029191On the Superannuation Provider Maintenance screen, you can now enter longer SMSF fund names in the Account Name field. The field's character limit has been increased from 25 to 200.

When submitting an STP batch, even successful submissions would cause an error message to appear: "The pay event data submission to ATO was failed with the following message. Severity: Information Text: Message accepted Detail: Error Code: CMN.ATO.GEN.OK". This has been resolved for new STP batches.
