Transition from 2021 to 2022

Payroll submissions for 2022

You cannot include payment dates for 2021 and 2022 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 2022 pay date until the 2022 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 2021 to 2022. You must also ensure that the individual’s name is not changed. 

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