Transition from 2022 to 2023

Payroll submissions for 2023

You cannot include payment dates for 2022 and 2023 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 2023 pay date until the 2023 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 2022 to 2023. 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.
