Transition from 2019 to 2020

Payroll submissions for 2020

You cannot include payment dates for 2019 and 2020 in the same payroll submission. It is important the correct year is included in the header on the payroll submission.

You should not file a payroll submission with a 2020 pay date until the 2020 Revenue Payroll Notification (RPN) is available. 

You should not change an employee’s Employment ID from year to year. 

Employer Reference Number 

When making a payroll submission without a Personal Public Service Number (PPSN), it is mandatory to use an employer reference number. This reference number should not be changed from 2019 to 2020. You must also ensure that the individual’s name is not changed. 

Once the PPSN is updated, you should include it along with the employer reference number on the payroll submission. We will use the employer reference number and PPSN to match and link previous payroll submission details.
